A custom truck shop shared baffling video of an engine being purposefully dropped on the hood of a 379 Peterbilt.

The video was shared on Thursday by One Of A Kind Customs, a shop located in Sigourney, Iowa, with the caption, “Detroit engine swap complete for this 379!”

@oneofakindcustoms Detroit engine swap complete for this 379! #oneofakindcustoms #iowa #custom #engineswap #showtruck #worktruck #work #shop #fun #fyp #foryoupage #peterbilt #bigrig #bigrigs #semi #largecar #projects #build #builds #project ♬ Basket Case – Green Day

In less than 24 hours, the video was viewed more than 350,000 times. 

“Every man felt that in their heart within a 3500 mile radius,” said one commenter.

“When the customers credit declines for a engine swap lol,” another person joked. 

“Why! That Pete was beautiful!!” lamented another commenter. 

While the video left many social media commenters confused, this appears to be part of a larger custom build project that may show at MATS in 2023.
