BIG TRUCKS: ON & OFF THE HIGHWAY: The 244 images come from photos, slides and brochures from the mid-1970ís in the case of highway trucks and from the early 1980ís for the off-highway vehicles. Two well-known truck builders,. Kenworth & Peterbilt, are still around, all three U.S. automakers have exited the large truck market and two builders, Brockway and Marmon, are gone. An aspect of the 1970ís era were the cab-over-engine trucks that went away with the easing of truck-trailer length restrictions. In the mining area, the trucks of the early 1980ís were almost half the capacity of contemporary trucks.
