Christmas is approaching quickly, and in the spirit of the season, Overdrive dug these old covers out of the filing room to show off.

As was standard with Overdrive in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, models adorn all four covers.

A few years ago, Overdrive did a modern recreation of the covers — Click here to see the photo gallery from that shoot. They were published in December 2012 and featured a Dallas-based model alongside of Justin Hall’s “Deja Blue”, which picked up several awards at the 2012 Great American Trucking Show that year in Dallas.

Also, gathered last year during one of the “polar vortex” events was this gallery of reader-submitted photos of trucks covered in snowClick here to see it.
