OUT-OF-PRINT BACK ISSUES ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

  Start reading Old Time Trucks® magazine today
   
  Old Time Trucks® magazine is the recipient of 42 Excellence in Communication awards from the Truck Writers of North America. It appears six times  a year and contains stories about classic trucks and trucking history. Our focus is primarily North American commercial vehicles, but from time to time we include trucks from other countries.

A feature that appears in every issue is "Kicking Tires." These pages give members a chance to show off their trucks along with some information about the truck: where they found it, how they restored it (if restored), some of the truck's history, specs, etc. We love rusty trucks, too.
  If you have stories or photos you would like to see published in Old Time Trucks®, we welcome your submissions. We rely heavily on readers' contributions and value your input. Our only requirement is that the story be directly related to antique trucks or trucking history. You may e-mail your stories and photos to our editor or send them via US mail to:
