Today’s vintage image was found in a lot with several older photos, and is probably the most modern that I have in my collection. Look at the mountains in the background! They almost seem painted in. Cab-over trucks have always freaked me out a little bit, probably the idea of being on top of the engine just doesn’t appeal. They have some character, sure, but not nearly as much normal trucks.
My dad was a trucker when I was growing up. I have vague memories of being on construction sites in the early mornings, watching machines rumble by, and how loud everything was. It’s no wonder dad blasts the TV these days! He can’t hear a goddamn thing otherwise.
He never drove loads of lumber as far as I know.
Trucking used to be a very lucrative line of work! Not anymore, unfortunately.
Anyway, see you again soon with more vintage images.
