A Truck Photographer’s Diary, Vol. 13–Cool Rides ONE, is intended to provide historic photographic documentation of trucks from a bygone era, the early to mid-1990s.

Most of the 150 photos were taken by author David A. Bontrager, who is well-known for his classic and unique images of trucks and trains from the 1950s through the present day. This is an excellent sampling of his private collection of truck photos. The photos were taken in various areas of the United States, with many from the West. Many of the photos are of Kenworths and Peterbilts, although other trucks are also represented. The album includes mini photo essays on livestock haulers, Allied Van Lines, and Passport Transport.

The images are in pristine condition and will view excellent on screen. A few may be less than perfect, but I feel the historic value of the trucks shown out weighs the technical aspects of the photo. Images may be printed for personal non-commercial use only.
