'Trick My Truck' premiers Friday on CMT

| 2/3/2006

If you’re like most people, you’ve never seen a truck go from broken to beautiful in the course of a half hour. But if you tune into the Country Music Television network this Friday, you will.

At 8 p.m. EST Friday, Feb. 3, CMT will begin airing “Trick My Truck,” a reality television series that documents the work of the Chrome Shop Mafia in Joplin, MO, as they give breathtaking facelifts to the trucks of eight owner-operators.

An OOIDA member will be the first to have his truck made over on the show. According to CMT’s Web site, OOIDA Life Member Jeff Crane of Gardiner, ME, will have his truck, “Icebreaker,” featured in the debut episode.

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.
