Meet “Poor Money,” the 2023 Kenworth W900L proudly owned and operated by Steve Huff, a resident of Collinsville, Oklahoma. This magnificent machine represents not just a mode of transportation but a symbol of hard work, perseverance, and the American dream.

A Dream Realized

Steve Huff’s journey with “Poor Money” began with a dream. He eagerly anticipated its arrival when he ordered this awe-inspiring 2023 Kenworth W900L around Thanksgiving in 2021. Finally, in the spring of 2022, his dream came to fruition when he took possession of his prized possession.

Showcasing Excellence

Steve Huff’s passion for trucking and his commitment to excellence was on display when he showcased “Poor Money” at the prestigious 2022 Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck show in Branson, Missouri. The truck garnered significant attention and acclaim, ultimately earning a well-deserved third place in the Working Truck-Limited Mileage category.

The Meaning Behind “Poor Money”

“Poor Money,” as a name, carries a profound significance for Steve Huff. It’s not just a catchy moniker; it’s a reflection of his personal journey. Steve’s humble beginnings and challenges while growing up without financial abundance have made him appreciate the value of hard work and determination. He acknowledges that “it’s taken me this long to get where I am,” and the name “Poor Money” perfectly encapsulates his journey from financial struggle to achieving his dreams in the trucking world.

The Heart of the Beast

Under the hood of “Poor Money” roars a powerful 565-horsepower Cummins engine paired with an 18-speed transmission, capable of delivering an impressive 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque. This formidable powertrain ensures that the truck can easily handle the toughest hauls, reflecting Steve’s commitment to reliable performance on the road.

Customization and Personal Touch

While the truck’s interior remained stock during the 2022 Shell Rotella SuperRigs show, Steve Huff had plans to make some custom changes in the coming months. This dedication to personalization extends to the exterior as well. The front of the rig boasts custom additions, including a visor and window chops from RoadWorks, adding a touch of elegance to the truck’s appearance.

The rear of “Poor Money” showcases Steve’s attention to detail and practicality. It features a four-door custom headache rack with storage from Brunner, a stainless steel catwalk for accessibility, double-hump fenders for an added flair, and custom T-bars to complete the look. With a grand total of 133 lights, this truck is a true marvel to behold, lighting up the road wherever it goes.

“Poor Money” is more than just a truck; it’s a testament to Steve Huff’s unwavering dedication to his craft and resilience in the face of adversity. The name is a constant reminder of his humble beginnings and the remarkable journey that led him to become a successful owner-operator leased to Miller Truck Lines.

As “Poor Money” continues to roll down highways, hauling AAON air conditioners from Tulsa to Florida and bringing back John Deere equipment, it symbolizes the enduring spirit of the American dream. Steve Huff’s story, intertwined with the road he travels, is an inspiration to all who encounter this remarkable truck. In the trucking world, “Poor Money” stands tall as a beacon of hope and a testament to the belief that hard work and determination can turn dreams into reality.
