Mothers(r) Big Rig Background
The Mothers(r) big rig is about more than just rolling down the highways, it moves with precision and looks good in the process. Like the products it was built to represent, the Mothers(r) big rig is cut from only the finest stock. Led by a Peterbilt Model 387, the 53-foot Featherlite trailer is pulled by a Cummins ISX diesel engine that generates 525 horsepower at 1700 rpm, and 1650 ft-lbs of torque at 1200 rpm. Delivering this awesome power to the wheels is a Fuller 10-speed Ultrashift automatic transmission. Rubber is mounted on Alcoa polished aluminum wheels. The flowing exterior graphic design was laid by Kelly & Son Crazy Painters in Bellflower, California.
Inside, the Mothers(r) moving command vehicle plays host to a complete media center and lounge where passengers can enjoy satellite TV and a comprehensive Sony audio/video system with Kicker speakers. When it comes to cargo, an 18-foot movable lift and rear lift gate allow storage of up to four Mothers(r) show vehicles.
Mothers(r) is known worldwide for its premium-grade polishes, waxes and cleaners and offers a broad array of finish care products under its California Gold(r), FX, Reflections(r), PowerBall(r), Marine and Professional lines.
