48 | Overdrive | April 2019 W hen Daniel and Phyllis Snow of Harrison, Arkansas, bought their 1996 Freightliner Classic XL, "The Goose," in 2005, it had nary an extra light or a piece of stainless on it. They've spent more than the last decade patiently customizing it. The truck is powered by a DDEC 4 Detroit Series 60 and transmission that are recent replacements for the original powertrain. It also features a 140-inch ICT sleeper that replaced a 63-inch sleeper. The Classic XL is the sole survivor from Daniel Snow's foray into building a bull- hauling fleet that once had seven trailers. He's now scaled it down to the one truck and brought family into the business. See more views of Daniel and Phyllis Snow's rig and sleeper in the Cus- tom Rigs playlist at YouTube.com/ OverdriveMag. BY TODD DILLS CUSTOM RIGS A long-term spruce for 'The Goose' "The Goose" earned its name to go along with the big-bunk 1999 Freightliner Classic XL, "The Duck," owned by the Snows' son, Jayme Snow. It was featured in Overdrive in February. The interior has all the accents of a lived-in home, clear evidence of Phyllis Snow's in uence since she joined Daniel with a CDL shortly before the unit was purchased. Daniel goes by "Doc " and Phyllis goes by "Tinkerbell" while out on the road.
