British and European Trucks of the 1970s

The 1970s witnessed more changes to the trucking industry in Europe than any previous decade. Whilst European truck builders had been developing powerful vehicles capable of operating at between 35 to 38 tonnes gross vehicle weight (GVW), and equipped with comfortable sleeper cabs for long haul international journeys, in the UK the truck builders were playing catch up.

The '70s witnessed a number of amalgamations, mergers and take-overs that would change the face of the pan-European trucking industry.
It saw the birth of the infamous British Leyland empire, which was to have far-reaching and disastrous consequences for all the manufacturers it engulfed.
In the face of booming sales of European heavyweights, both Ford and Bedford launched heavyweight models aimed at this key sector, but like most other British truck manufacturers, it was too little too late...

This is a unique account of a turbulent period in trucking history.

Lorries in Britain: The 1980s

In the 1980s Great Britain had steadily seen an influx of foreign manufacturers, a trend that was to eventually see the demise of all the major UK makes. However, it was still possible to see lots of interesting vehicles - some companies and individuals remained staunch users of British-built lorries.

Quite a few older vehicles could still be seen soldiering on, but as time went on these gradually started to disappear. With a wealth of previously unpublished photos, this volume will bring back some memories of how things used to be.

British and European Trucks of the 1980s

Mergers, amalgamations and joint ventures have meant that the number of pan-European truck manufacturers can now almost be counted on the fingers of one hand.

Modern legislation governing gross weights, emissions and operations, also mean that many of today's trucks are almost uniform. However, in the 1980s more than 50 truck manufacturers built a diverse range of sizes and configurations, the like of which will not be seen again.
Increasing gross weights, the exploration of ultra-long haul routs, and the virtual doubling of engine power over the previous decade meant the '80s were a period of dramatic change.

Trucks in the 1980s : The Photos of David Wakefield

Many would argue the 1980s were a better time for truck drivers than nowadays: no mobile phones, less traffic on the road, CB radio was all the rage and stickers were the heart of truck customising.
But the transport industry is constantly evolving and companies must adapt their vehicles to keep pace with the developments. As a result, vehicle design and liveries regularly change and many of the companies around in the 1980s have expired and been forgotten, and the trucks are long gone to the great scrapyard in the sky.

David Wakefield has been working in the transport industry for over 30 years and has been taking photos of trucks since the early 1980s. He has amassed thousands of high-quality images, producing one of the most comprehensive photographic collections of the time, but many of his photos have never been previously published

In this vivid compilation, Nick Ireland has collated 300 of David's images from the 80s in order to preserve them and make them publicly available for the first time.
"Trucks in the 1980s" features trucks from all over the world and is a must-have for current and former truckers who will enjoy being reminded of the good old days and to anyone else with an interest in transport history.

Lorries in Britain: The 1990s

NIEUW

The 1990s were a time of change as British manufacturers struggled to keep pace with the times and the invasion of imported vehicles. However, what a lot of enthusiasts consider to be classics of their time were still to be seen dutifully earning their keep. A lot of UK companies had by this time already tested the water with seed vehicles, which were put head to head with established makes for comparison.

With a wealth of previously unpublished images, this is a fantastic record of the nation's lorry scene during the 1990s.
