Peterbilts among enthusiasts. Starting in 1939 when Peterbilt was formed (after acquiring Fageol trucks), this golden era of trucking is portrayed through large period photographs when these heavy haulers were put to work.   Captions not only tell about the truck, but also about the companies and owners who operated them.
