There’s a parking lot across Paradise Road from the Las Vegas Convention Center where several highly polished semi tractors are parked during the SEMA Show. Among them is a rig from Rollin’ R Enterprises, a transport company based in Oxnard, California.

The big orange Freightliner rig is impressive enough, what with its cab redesigned and customized by Manny Aguilera of nearby Ventura, California.

But what earns the rig SEMA Seen recognition is the “cargo” carried on the truck’s trailer: A trio of black, customized Chevy classics. A 1962 coupe, and 1958 and 1959 convertibles.

Each would be a SEMA Showstopper parked across the street at the show, but staged together on the bilevel flatbed trailer — wow!

  1. Had a ’59 like the one on the big rig. 348 motor too! Now, I have a ’63 split window Corvette.327 motor.

  2. The 58 is a hardtop coupe, not a convert. 58 is the first year of the Impala however and is a very nice car, I bought a 60 Impala coupe new and I wish I still had it today.
