XDP Diesel's East Coast Open House
We Travel To The Jersey Shore In Search of Diesel Power
Diesel Power is based in Los Angeles and has a satellite office in Illinois. During the last five years, we've attended events all over the country, but we've never made it farther northeast than North Carolina-until now.
We'd been hearing about the diesel truck scene in New Jersey for years, so when Paul Nishanian of XDP invited us to attend its open house, we grabbed our cameras and hopped on a plane.
XDP's inaugural event attracted more than 60 trucks to its show 'n' shine. The staff gave away more than $5,000 in cash and prizes, served 400 hot dogs and hamburgers, offered a $5 truck wash, and opened XDP's 20,000-square-foot facility for us to check out.
This year's event drew enthusiasts from all over the Eastern Seabord, and next year's event promises to be even better. Diesel Power will be back at XDP again in 2011 (September 18, to be exact), and we hope to see the rest of you eastcoasters there, too.
