Class of the Industry chronicles the men and machines behind the legend. Here is the story of the first logging trucks, the development of Peterbilt's renowned engineering excellence, and the ongoing strides forward in the art of aerodynamics.
For this book, famed automotive photographer Henry Rasmussen trained his cameras on beautifully restored Peterbilts, show trucks, and highway carriers. More than 80 full-color portraits showcase the mechanical grace of these trucks accompanied by a gallery of black and white historical photos.
