Description
With picture-packed pages and in-depth text, this colossal book is a visual celebration and informative tome on America's most loved and depended-on vehicle--the pickup truck. * Representing the "Heart and soul of America" as the successful Chevy commercials tout, pickup trucks have loyal and enthusiastic owners, a quality reflected in truck sales figures. Believe it or not, more American-made pickup trucks are sold in this country than either American-made sedans or stationwagons. * Following the success of the oversized Heavy Equipment, Pickup Trucks features huge full-color spreads and showcases each evolutionary step of pickups from the classic trucks of the 1920s to the run-away success of the new Dodge Rams. * Fact-packed sidebars and boxes give historical context and engaging truck trivia. A wealth of entertaining stories cover industry personalities from CEOs to designers to zealous truck owners. * Every brand of truck is covered including Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, International, Mack, Studebaker, Diamond T, Reo, foreign imports and more.
