Vintage Truckin' 4 - 1950s & 1960s
Western Freight Haulers Special
by David A. Bontrager
About the Book
This book features western freight haulers that ran team to Chicago. The equipment running east was different than the equipment running west only. A few western operation trucks are shown so you can see the differences. It should be noted that the trucks with droms shown in this book did indeed run east. They are short droms with shorter trailers. The book is mostly black & white with some color.
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.
