Thanks, enjoyed the photos. First time I stopped in, they didn't have any women's showers. So, had to stand guard when my wife took a shower, that was about 1972. Last time I was there I was with Steve, Ex Road Pounder.

One of the first Overdrive magazine covers I ever saw had an aerial view of Triple T and I thought it was amazing with all the trucks parked around it.
Late 1960's.
All sorts of moving vans could be seen.

That is really cool, I see 3 Allied Van Lines and can make out a Global Van Lines -almost looks like it might be an H model Mack- along with Bekins........the rest I can't make out that clear but some fantastic trucks in that lot!

Looks like bedbuggers make up half the population of the parking lot. ;D

Shot this in the front parking lot of TTT year, or so ago.
 I-10 guardrail in the background.
 You'll also notice Pilot has moved into what was a vacant lot on the  corner of the off ramp.

That's a cool shot Steve.
Big difference between Triple T and Texaco Town back then too.

You're right Rob.
 T Town was still a busy place back then. Too bad it didn't survive.
 Don't know if you've been past there lately, but just a convenience store with Diesel there now.
