“Welcome to My Cab” is an online video series we started to highlight the most spectacular and customized trucks on the planet. We’ve done three installments so far, and each one has been uniquely fun and rewarding. Words can’t describe how cool it is to meet and hear stories from professionals who have been driving our trucks for decades. It’s an honor to play a role in both their personal and professional lives. For the latest installment, our production team flew into Green Bay, Wisconsin to hang out with Kenn and Beth Zelten, power couple and trucking industry veterans. As soon as we saw their custom VNL model, we knew we were in for a good time.
The pair met back in 1988 at a racetrack in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. They got married, got a Volvo truck and have been driving one since 1989. Their new VNL 730, dubbed “Kermit” after the famous Sesame Street character, represents their love for nature with unique graphics, a 2014 GHG-certified engine and aftertreatment system that puts out air as clean as it takes in and all the bells and whistles needed to make life on the road comfortable. It’s more than a truck. It’s a lifestyle. The Zeltens and their long-haul home are living, driving proof.
Check out their episode below, and watch out for “Kermit,” coming to a city near you.
