This eagerly-awaited re-issue of award-winning author Henry Rasmussen's best-selling work on pickup trucks is more timely than ever. New pickups are the best-selling vehicles for both Ford and Chevrolet, and the interest in restoring, collecting, and using vintage pickups has never been greater. Rasmussen shows why the versatile pickup is considered an absolutely perfect vehicle for people on the job or on the move. Truck owners cherish their four-wheeled workhorses with a passion rarely directed at an automobile. And unlike collector cars that are preserved under wraps, vintage pickups are at their best when being used. The trucks Rasmussen has included are among the most stylish of all time, and his stunning color photography shows these trucks in their best light.
