Freightliner has entered into a two-year sponsorship with Legendary Motorcar’s “Dream Car Garage,” a TV series on the Speed Channel.

Freightliner’s heavy-duty Coronado will be the official transporter truck of “Dream Car Garage” and Legendary Motorcar for the 2006 and 2007 broadcast seasons. The Coronado will be featured in two one-hour specials during the 2005-2006 season.

The first special’s airdate is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 17. The airdate for the second special has not been announced.

The Coronado tractor — a 70-inch, raised-roof sleeper cab model — will appear during the opening montage animation for each show and serve as a backdrop for location segments.

The Freightliner Run Smart logo will appear on both the tractor and an accompanying trailer, along with the “Dream Car Garage” graphics. The “Dream Car Garage” and Legendary Motorcar websites also will feature a link to the Freightliner Trucks homepage.
