70 years in one minute

I was fortunate to be invited to Peterbilt’s 70th anniversary celebration at the Denton, Texas, headquarters this week. As part of a presentation to dealers and customers, the company presented this cool little video that shows many of the truck models morphing into each other, reflecting the changes over seven decades.

Also, note the top two photos on the right for a glimpse at a few trucks that stand out in Peterbilt’s history.

And if you haven’t already seen our story, check it for more detail about the company’s history and anniversary celebration.
