Spread-Axles Volume 3
A Truck Photographer's Diary
by David A. Bontrager
About the Book
This book is the third in a series of color photos of spread-axle reefers. Several photos of spread-axle dry vans are also included. All of the trucks in this collection are definitely Cool Rides. Some are working show trucks and most could be. All photos were taken in the working environment of the trucks.
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.
