  • A Truck Photographer’s Diary, Vol. 102–Just Trucks 1, is a CD photo album featuring photos of trucks taken between the early-1970s thru 2005.  The locations vary and all of the photos were taken by Bernie Fahrner and are copyright of Mr. Fahrner.  All photos were used with permission and are in the collection of D. A. Bontrager.
  • This photo album features a wide variety of trucks; working trucks, working show trucks, restored antique trucks, company trucks, old out of service trucks, and some trucks that Bernie owned and drove in his early years of trucking, plus a few photos of old truck stops .
  • This photo album is comprised of all color photos.  Generally speaking, the photo album begins with the latest photos and moves backwards to the earliest photos.
  • The photo album is a great archive of trucks.

About The Author

  • Dave’s mother took photos of his dad’s trucks in the 1940s and 1950s and is the one responsible for Dave’s interest in truck photography.  As a boy, Dave began photographing trucks in the mid-1950s, and also collected photos from trucking companies.  Over the years Dave learned to know many people who took photos and also collected truck photos, and many of these acquaintances sent him photos.  Dave of course is quite a historian on the trucking industry and the trucks.  Dave’s passion for truck photography continues today.  He is now retired and lives with his wife Anna near Elnora, Indiana.

About The Photographer

  • Like me, Bernie grew up around trucks and began trucking at an early age.  Today Bernie is still trucking and lives in Ohio with his wife Sue.  Many thanks to Bernie for his efforts in truck photography.
