Cool Rides Vol. 1
A Truck Photographer's Diary
by David A. Bontrager
About the Book
A collection of truck photos that I categorize as "Cool Rides." A truck does not have to have all of the goodies or wild paint to be a cool ride. Many times less is best, and sometimes it's simply the way a truck sits. These are all working trucks, most taken in their working environment. Plus, most W900 and W900A Kenworths and are cool, even if they have faded paint.
Dave drove truck in the U.S. for 40 years with over 3-million safe miles. He started taking photos of trucks as a young boy in the 1950s, inspired by his mother who took photos of his dad's trucks beginning in the late 1940s. He continues to photograph trucks today.
