SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Owners of the limited edition Peterbilt 379X recently held a family reunion of sorts to celebrate their common passion for the special-edition Pete.
The first annual X Family Reunion was hosted by the Larson Group, owners of seven Peterbilt dealerships in the U.S.
“We wanted to say thanks to all of our customers who bought a Model 379X,” says Glenn Larson, president of The Larson Group. “They have a unique place in Peterbilt’s history as owners of this special-edition truck in which only about 1,000 were produced. Our Model 379X customers take their commitment to and enthusiasm for Peterbilt to a new level, and we wanted to create an event that was exclusively for them where they could get together as a community year after year.”
While the inaugural reunion only included customers who purchased their Pete 379X from a Larson dealership, next year’s event will be opened up to all other Pete 379X owners including Canadians, the company says.
The event included a barbecue lunch, prize drawings and games and activities for the children. It also included a contest that saw Charles and Janet Simmons win about $30,000 in lights and chrome accessories for the interior and exterior of their 379X.
