Truck Stop 6
A Truck Photographer's Diary
by David A. Bontrager
About the Book
This book is a collection of black and white photos taken by well known truck photographer Neil Sherff. Most photos were taken in the 1960s. On the cover and also inside the book is a photo of B. C. Fry's Diamond T with a V-12 Detroit Diesel. Inside the book is a photo of B. C. Fry's next truck, a conventional Kenworth also powered with a V-12 Detroit. B. C. Fry had a reputation of driving fast, and both of these trucks would certainly do that.
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.
