  • A Truck Photographer’s Diary, Vol. 96–Keep On Truckin’ – Trucking 1970s-2005, is a CD photo album featuring photos of trucks taken from the 1970s to 2005.
  • All of the photos in this CD were taken by well known truck photographer, Harry Patterson, and are in the collections of David A. Bontrager and Bernie G. Fahrner.
  • The photos in this album were taken either in the working environment of the trucks or at truck shows.  Most photos are of working trucks and a few are of restored trucks.
  • The photo album is a great archive of vintage trucks.  Most of the photos were taken in the working environment of the trucks.  The trucking industry is a constantly changing arena, and when trucking history is gone, it’s gone forever.  Without photos like these we would not have any history of trucking.
  • 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.
  • Pages may be printed for personal non-commercial use only – not for public distribution by any manual, mechanical or electronic means.

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 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.
