Trucks of the 1980s: The Photos of David Wakefield by Nick Ireland

cover photo

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 comapnies 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 th e1980s have expired and been forgotten, and the trucks are long gone to the great scrapyard int he sky!

In this vivid compilation, Nick Ireland has collated 300 of David Wakefield's images from the 80s in order to preserve them and make them publicly available for the first time. Featuring trucks from all ove rthe world this book 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.
