The Long Haul - American Trucking Companies

In the early days, many trucking companies started out with one truck or even some horses, and a few tough folks kept hauling through the Great Depression and WWII. As roads improved, many of these companies became large operations with ample semi-trucks, trailers and places to haul.

This book is a concise history of the pioneers in trucking and how they grew their truck empires. From the east coast to the west coast, most of the companies started out very small regionally and with acquisitions and mergers became the big names in trucking hauling all over America.
Each company includes a history, maps of their truck lines at and a photo or more of their fleet or rigs they used an epochal point in their history.

Gas & Oil Trucks

The history of gas and oil trucks parallels that of the car and the gas station. When the automobile first hit the dusty roads of America in the early 1900s, numerous oil companies emerged, building "filling stations" to cater to the motorist's ever-growing demands. Keeping those stations supplied with adequate amounts of fuel was the gas and oil truck's responsibility. Since that time, tank trucks have served as a vital link between the large refineries and small gas stations.

"Gas & Oil Trucks" is a fantastic photo collection of great gas and oil trucks from the past and present. Included here are Autocar, Diamond T, Reo, Mack, White, GMC, Ford, Dodge, and many others. Read how the first trucks - nothing more than simple chassis with round tanks attached - evolved into the complex, monstrous rolling rigs we see today.
Along the way, see the classic streamlined trucks of the 1930s, the military tankers used during World War II, and the specialty trucks of the 1950s and 1960s.

Author and truck historian Donald Wood chronicles the whole story of tank trucks working in gas stations, refineries, airports, and in military combat. Packed-with more than 400 black and white photographs, drawings, and design specifications, "Gas & Oil Trucks" is a must for truck enthusiasts and petroliana collectors.
