March 25, 2024
The 2024 PKY Truck Beauty Championship brought custom trucks of every kind. Here are some of the trucks' stand-out custom details.

LOUISVILLE—These custom trucks are unique, polished, and full of personality. Countless custom tractors and trailers could be found at the 33rd annual PKY Truck Beauty Championship here at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Kentucky.

More than 140 custom trucks signed up for the championship. Contestants brought every type of equipment, from a 1947 Peterbilt 344 to a 2022 Kenworth W900L, and from bobtails to truck-trailer combos and everything in between.

The show trucks sat in a parking lot in front of the Louisville convention center during MATS. The trucks also put on their PKY Light Show Thursday night and went out for the PKY Parade Saturday night.
