4 Dapper Lads & 1 Cool Pete
Iron Horse Motor Lines supplied their beautiful Peterbilt 379 "Night Train Express" to transport four young men to their end of year prom. It was voted best prom entrance - most certainly beating them old smelly double deckers the kids would normally ride to school on!
When we were contacted by the father of a young man who was after something a bit special, with the capabilities of turning heads on a prom night to transport his son & 3 friends, we sure could tick every box for them...
- Big, Shiny & Loud
- Unusual vehicle transport
- Seating for 4
Our 1993 Peterbilt American truck named Night Train Express sure got it covered.
Our beautiful American trucks for hire can also make the perfect choice to transport school leavers on their prom night, & boy do we have a lot of fun when we see the admiring crowds stood waiting at the venue in amazement & often wondering who our passengers could be.
We arrived at our destination in good time, after carefully manoeuvring the big 28 foot beast around parked cars (we guess the residence of the cul-de-sac we were on don't normally get such large American trucks this big travelling down their little roads!). We pulled out front of the house & figured we need not use the door bell to make our presence known - train horns on a truck do the job just as well! The boys looked out in amazement knowing that our big rig was going to be hard to beat in the "Best Prom Entrance" category. Our driver greeted the young men, their families & friends, along with the offer to take some pictures with the boys which we would later send off to them once processed for their memories.
By the time pictures were taken & half the street had came out in awe of what had entered their once quiet road (do you think they may of heard us?!) we rolled some coal onto the open road! After a 10 minute detour into the local town to show off the truck & to give the lads a fun little ride around, we headed to the outskirts to their school. We parked up in the school car park & after 5 minutes or so, we were the first through the gates! The entrance was a little tight, making it worse when, before you, there are a good couple of hundred bystanders watching you enter! Steady, careful driving would see us in, with an entrance unmatched by any other vehicle. The crowds went wild, cheering, clapping, air horn pumping - we made a lot of noise that night for sure! They loved seeing our American truck & even more so our young passengers who had the privilege to enjoy a ride in our big rig!
We left the boys to enjoy the rest of their evening, with reports back the following day that, despite there not being an award for best entrance, feedback would suggest if there had been, we would of won that hands down!
We wish the 4 young men all the best in their futures & you never know, maybe we might even end up undertaking wedding transport for one of the boys in the not so distant future!
