Vintage and Contemporary TRUCKS--RESTORED PHOTO ENLARGEMENTS

Fatjack's is now offering reprints of a select group of photographs from David A. Bontrager's private collection (the collection is in excess of 50,000 images) for others to enjoy. These historical and collectible photos of vintage antique trucks would be nice additions to a collection of trucking memorabilia. The photos would be ideal in an office, den, hobby room, or would even add a touch of nostalgia to a diner. The photo sample is shown with "Fatjack's Sample" ghosted on it - the photo you receive will not have this ghost image. At the request of the buyer, David will hand sign the photo.

Many more photos to be listed soon. Check back often!!!

On the right side of the photo is my dad, A. G. Bontrager, leaning up against his all-time favorite truck, a cabover GMC. He also owned the Dodge truck. The photo was taken in California in the early fifties, approximately 1952-1953. Trucking from Indiana to California back in those days was quite a job, but Dad loved it. Often times he would stay on the West Coast for a month at a time and haul cars up and down Highway 99. He always said that he wanted to move to California, but never did. As time went on, he made his last trip to California in the late sixties and said again that he wanted to move to California, but never went back before he had his first stroke in the late eighties, and passed away in 1999. Lesson learned is that if we don’t follow our dreams, they simply won’t happen. Needless to say, this photo has a lot of nostalgic value for me. Original photographer unknown, photo restored and in the collection of David A. Bontrager. The photo is as large as I can make it and still have quality. The original simply wasn’t that good of a photo, but I still treasure it.
