DIESEL-FUMES -

As this assorted panel so clearly biased P - I - E, you done a Good Thing!

Spotted this one, and all I can say is, "...don't let the greenie wackos see it!..." <G> I surely hope any armadilloes or jackrabbits, or both did
not suffer from the Diesel exhaust! Stuff mighta' stained the sagebrush and cactus...

Diesel-fumes: Great series! Are these from a series of articles or one large feature?

What I especially like about them is how they show the "people" as well as the "trucks". If I had to choose one "favourite" from here it would be this one:

Hello Terry,

Many thanks for all those fantastic "classic" pictures!!!!!

Charlie, you are more than right about the "modern magazines"!!!!!
Also here in Europe, big "heads" on the front-cover about "fantastic" trucks, but by "looking" in-side not even "fully" rigs pictured!!!!!
In a "Dutch" magazine" is now an article about the highway between Vancouver and Calgary!!!!! 4 "pages" but 3 "useable" ones of the rigs!!!!!
And the most of the "info" is "childish blabla"!!!!!
Looking forward to see more of those real claasic ones!!!!!
greetings from Germany,

Leo

Deceased.

Great collection of photographs!  Especially the P.I.E shots.  There is a whole lot of trucking history reflected here.  Thanks for sharing.

It was a show for white trucks 50th anniversary. However,  as you can see it didn't turn out good. one truck rolled. another one ran into the stands. There wasn't any info with the pictures so I don't know if anyone was hurt......
