OOIDA member to lead off "Trick My Truck" series on CMT

| 1/26/2006

An OOIDA member will be the first person to have his truck made over on a new reality television show.

According to the Web site for the Country Music Television network, OOIDA Life Member Jeff Crane of Gardiner, ME, will have his truck, “Icebreaker,” featured in the debut episode of “Trick My Truck.” The show will air Friday, Feb. 3, at 8 p.m. EST.

“Trick My Truck” is a new reality series that highlights the work of the Chrome Shop Mafia in Joplin, MO, as they give breathtaking facelifts to the trucks of eight owner-operators.

In addition to Crane, one other OOIDA member – Darlene Swift of Taylor Ridge, IL – will have her truck modified on the show. However, the airdate for Swift’s episode has not yet been announced.

Keep an eye on Land Line Magazine and listen to “Land Line Now” on XM Satellite Radio for more in-depth updates on “Trick My Truck” in the coming weeks.
