Lobo's first "knightly" creation, seen here in 2002, bore the appropriate title "The First Knight." A longtime fan of medieval history, Lobo incorporated dragons more prominently into this particular truck along with knights and swords.
Dragon mythology originally began with the Greeks and their fictional ability to "breathe fire" is said in some circles to derive from the way Cobras spit poison from their fangs.
Dragons were also called "Wyrms" or "Worms" in medieval times.
Lobo's second truck, a 2012 FreightlinerCascadia, became "The Black Knight." The wolf imagery was designed as a salute to his Native American heritage, Lobo said.
"The image of the noble knight stands for a lot of things to me: honor, integrity, courage, and respect,” Lobo noted. “It’s an image that I believe many truck drivers like me try to live up to. That’s why truck drivers were called ‘knights of the road’ in the past.”
Lobo's "alter ego" was emblazoned on the hood of "The Black Knight" - Shane De La Mar.
Lobo is seen here in front of "The Black Knight" before he sold it in August 2014 after putting 648,000 miles on the odometer.
Lobo's latest creation is "Arthur's Legacy," which as you can see incorporates modern aerodynamic touches as well to boost his tractor's fuel economy.
And as with "The Black Knight," Shane De La Mar is again riding proudly upon the hood of "Arthur's Legacy."
Nene Thomas of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, crafted the knight on Lobo’s truck hood, while Michael Leadingham of Las Vegas, Nevada, did the landscape art on Lobo’s sleeper (seen here).
