On this week’s episode we welcomed Robbie with United by Trucks.  Robbie has a passion for classic (and new) trucks as showcased on his rapidly successful YouTube channel. The featured image above is Robbie’s 1968 GMC patina shortbed nicknamed, Teddy.

From unitedbytrucks.com:

UNITED BY TRUCKS is all about the story, feeling, and camaraderie experienced in a well-worn, well-loved truck. Remember the first time you rode in that classic truck next to your grandfather? Or the feeling you got when you plopped down on that old worn-out bench seat? Or the memories you made with your buddies burning rubber, cruising the streets or riding dirt roads? That’s what UNITED BY TRUCKS is all about.
