DENTON, Texas – This October 25, thousands of Peterbilt employees, owners and enthusiasts will gather in San Joaquin, California to celebrate the company’s 75th anniversary.

The anniversary celebration will have a special truck show featuring more than 400 trucks that represent milestone models from the company’s history. A luncheon with music, guest speakers and a raffle for a Model 359 will also be part of the celebration.

“This will be a very special event that will bring together everything that is essential to our 75 years of industry leadership – our customers, our employees and dealers, and our vehicles,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice-president. “It will be a celebration of Peterbilt’s past, present and future.”

Truck restorer and Peterbilt enthusiast, Rick McClerkin created the show and says there are already 150 registrants.

“The enthusiasm and excitement surrounding this event continues to grow and we’re expecting a large turnout,” McClerkin said. “For anyone who loves the Peterbilt brand, this will be a once in a lifetime event to see some of the greatest trucks in history – including one of the first chassis ever produced, a 1939 model owned by the Fremont (Calif.) Fire Department – and celebrate with fellow Peterbilt owners, drivers and fans.”

Registration is still open for the event that takes place on October 25 at San Joaquin Fairgrounds in Stockton, Calif.
