Daniel and Phyllis Snow, also known by their CB handles “Doc” & “Tinkerbell,” are well known throughout the heavy duty trucking world as the owners of “The Goose,” a distinctive jade green metallic 1996 Freightliner Classic XL. Named “Truckers of the Year” in 2014 by American Trucker magazine, the Snows have more than 50 years of combined experience. Daniel first fell in love with heavy duty trucking watching his older brother and started driving professionally himself in 1980. The Snows made their debut as a professional driving team in 2004 after Daniel, a certified CDL training and safety instructor, taught Phyllis to drive.
“The Goose” has been featured in the Shell Rotella Super Rigs calendar and most recently earned “Best of Show for 2003 and Older Combination” and “Best of Show: Interior Custom Sleeper” honors at the 39th annual Truckers Jamboree in Walcott, Iowa. The name “The Goose” continues a Snow family tradition, which began with their youngest son who drives a truck named “The Duck.” In 2006, Daniel witnessed a single goose flying amongst a flock of ducks. Soon after, “The Goose” was born. Since then, both trucks have competed in truck beauty contests and worked across the country, side-by-side.
“We are thrilled to have the Snows join the Roadworks Manufacturing family as brand ambassadors,” said VP of Sales Ralph Banks. “Their passion for heavy duty trucking is unmatched. ‘The Goose’ and the Snows represent the true core of the industry, hard-working people who take pride in their work and truck.”
