Trucker Bill Donnelly is profiled by RoadKing.com about his 1980 Kenworth W900. Donnelly’s truck has on only 5 miles on it when he drove it off the lot. 3.75 million miles later the truck is still going strong.
Donnelly’s son writes about his fathers truck and the attention paid to keeping it running. Regular maintenance and repair keep small mechanical problems from turning into big ones.
All those miles have not been easy. Kenworth suffered severe damage during a fuel stop when struck by another truck. Instead of replacing the truck, Donnelly repaired and upgraded it personally.
