A Truck Photographer’s Diary, Vol. 25–Cool Rides 10, is the tenth in a series of CD photo albums featuring photos of cool trucks.

All of the 150 photos were taken in Effingham, Illinois in 2007 by Anna Bontrager, and are in the collection of David A. Bontrager. This is an excellent sampling of his private collection of truck photos.

Times have changed for getting good photos of trucks in truck stops due to the tight parking, making it extremely difficult getting clean views. All of the photos in this album are action shots, with most being close-up views. Thanks to high-technology digital SLR cameras all of the photos are beautiful clean shots with a nice backdrop.

The album includes five sections: Dry vans and reefers; tractor only views; tankers, which includes liquid and dry bulk; flatbeds, which, which includes step decks and lowboys; miscellaneous trucks, which includes car carriers, van lines, and others.

The images are in pristine condition and will view excellently on screen. A few may be slightly less than perfect, but I feel the historic value of the trucks shown out weighs the technical aspects of the photo.
