This picture from the road makes me think about “the good old days” of trucking. Back then, fuel was 79 cents a gallon and a load from Salinas to New York paid seven grand. Looking at this incredible “A” you also realize how much better they built trucks back then – they were tough (made out of metal, not plastic). The driver of this KW, if you look closely, can be seen talking to his buddies on the C.B. (cell phones did not even exist back then). Many of the technological advancements we enjoy today weren’t ever really needed. Those were the days! We need to get back to days like that!!
