I started building engines in 1965 and got involved with the trucking industry in 1969. I have been building high performance diesel engines since 1977 and have enjoyed working with owner-operators for the past 31 years. I love to snow ski and snowmobile and participate in an owner operator snow mobile conference each winter. I also love to ride the Harley, its a great way to free the mind. I currently write for 8 magazines about high performance diesel engines, work 8 truck shows each year and really enjoy doing the Friday night show with Kevin. I have a 1989 T-600 KW that rides on 9 air bags and one ping tank. She is a pleasure to drive, BC4 350 set up to 500 hp., single over 18 speed with 3:42 rear gears. I built this truck to pull my RV and toy trailer and the over-all length is 83 feet.

When George Gallamore got out of High School, he wanted to be somebody, see the world and get an education. He went into the Marine Corps and got stuck behind a desk. After the Marine Corps he wanted the same things and got stuck behind a desk...again. While being stuck behind a desk may seem boring to some, George was able to learn a great deal about communication, leadership, negotiations and management . Okay, so George DID get bored behind the desk and 11 years ago George left the desk life.
For the past 11 years George has travelled all over the country inspiring people to do their best when it comes to presentation skills, time management, negotiations and leadership. He has worked with companies big, small and in between.
George believes in one simple word when it comes to training. Edutainment. Education and entertainment are two important pieces to George. He believes that laughter is the window that allows the message into the mind.
