Peterbilt 357 on "Ultimate Factories" National Geographic Channel

So, I've been watching a lot of TV lately. One of the shows I caught on the National Geographic Channel was "Ultimate Factories". The episode I caught was the factory of the Peterbilt 357 in Denton, Texas.

It's quite awesome to see the process that goes into building one of my favorite trucks. Other "Ultimate Factory" episodes include the John Deere Harvester factory, the Harley Davidson V-Rod factory, and the Budwesier factory.

They are workhorses of the U.S. economy and a cultural icon of our open highways. Each day these trailblazing titans transport 25 million tons of goods across America,
clocking more than 412 billion miles annually. Last year, more than 80 percent
of America's cities and towns would have come to a screeching halt as they rely
solely on trucks to deliver all their cargo. At the Peterbilt factory in Denton,
Texas, NGC uncovers the power and secrets behind Peterbilt's design as viewers
witness one built.
