Website commemorates Overdrive’s 50th

| October 26, 2010

The new website, OverdriveRetro, offers retrospects on news, features and photos from 50 years of trucking history covered by Overdrive magazine for its 50th anniversary of its September 1961 launch. With special attention to the magazine’s back issues and reader interaction, the website has five photo galleries, a section for readers to submit memories and anecdotes about trucking, a equipment section featuring the best innovations over 50 years, a weekly featured topic, videos and a blog by Overdrive managing editor Lucinda Coulter.

The photo galleries comprise covers, trucks, ads, girls of the 1960’s era and a miscellaneous section. Each photo includes text describing some of the subject’s background.

Notice: Overdrive is transitioning to a new comment platform due to technical problems with the former commenting system. The new commenting system is now live. We are currently in the process of moving all of the comments from the old system into the new system. We appreciate your patience in the meantime.
