I know it's been a long time since I've updated, but not much happening. Some of you were able to see and maybe meet my dad when he had the rig out last fall. He really enjoys talking to all the people he meets along the way. We are trying to put some events together this year with Greg. As soon as I know of any confirmed events I will post the information.

American Trucker response
I would like to thank everyone that has sent e-mails and Facebook comments about the show. I hope everyone is enjoying it, and look forward to doing more. On a side note be patient when pictures are loading from the website. They load slower because you are downloading the picture without it being a thumbnail. We are working on this.

Chillicothe, OH JULY 24TH KENWORTH PLANT

We have been invited to be at the Kenworth employee picnic in Chillicothe, OH on July 24th. As far as I know this is for employees and family only. I don't believe it is open to the public. This is the plant where the Bj truck was built 30 yrs. ago.

Hi everyone,

I know it's been a while since the site has been updated. Not much going on in the winter as we pull the trucks off the road to help preserve them. My dad is currently working on the Bj rig chasing down air leaks and tweaking other things we may have missed when putting it back together. He should have that truck back on the road soon. I will try and update when he heads out with it to let people know what area of the country he'll be in.
Very soon we will be getting the reefer unit off the old trailer it is on, painted and put on the Bj trailer. I will have pics posted as throughout the process.

This site is all about the BJ and the Bear truck and the Movin' On truck.

All the pictures are available for you to copy and paste and print or whatever you want!

Please let me know if you share my enthusiasm or enjoy my site!

Hello and welcome to our site! We own one of the original trucks used in the TV Series "Bj and the Bear" that aired from 1978-1981. The truck was purchased in August of 2007 in Douglasville, Ga. Restoration started in the fall of 2007. After taking time off from the restoration, it resumed full speed in April of 2008 and was finished by July of 2008. The truck was completely stripped and restored back to the original screen used condition. Since being restored the truck was displayed for the first time at the Iola old car show in Iola, Wi in July of 2008.  At this show Greg Evigan the actor who played Bj Mckay in the series was on hand, and saw the truck for the first time in almost 30 years. We have recently purchased one of the original trailers used in the series and plan a full restoration for it.

We also own the truck used in the 1974 season of the tv series "Movin On" starring Claude Akins, and Frank Converse. After the truck was purchased it was also restored back to as close to the screen used condition as possible.

If you have any questions or comments about the trucks please feel free to contact me.
