‘I loved those trucks’

As readers send increasingly more photos and stories of trucking memories to OverdriveRetro, one frequent comment made is a strikingly simple one: “I loved those trucks,” many current and former truckers say of Overdrive’s back issues. On OverdriveRetro, you can read about the onetime Tractors of the Month awards and the wide range of trucks — dumps, small fleets, wreckers and model replicas — that were given awards along with them.

In Readers Remember, Patrick Montgomery recalls his introduction to Overdrive and tow trucks, and in the “40 Years Ago” feature, you can read about Tim Ahlborn’s inspiration to follow model truck making. Both enthusiasts were inspired to follow their career dreams, in part, from reading Overdrive magazine as youth.
