Evel Knievel’s Rig – Help Save Trucking History

The old truck hiding behind a farmers barn. The rig buried in the back corner of some industrial wasteland. We all have caught a fleeting glimpse of a road side relic in our travels. You consider yourself lucky if you can stop for a quick picture or revel in the faded glory. But all too soon you have to move on and leave that old truck to its fate. But today is different. Today you can do more. Today you can actually save a piece of this old iron. And what a piece it is.
