About this title:
From the first ?Mom & Pop? stops to the truck stops built by oil companies, to today?s travel plazas and turnpike stations, this is the first in-depth history of America?s truck stops as it departed from the gas station and expanded with the Interstate system and prosperity in America. The huge variety of truck stops across America are well documented through vintage black and white and color photographs, as well as vintage advertising and other memorabilia.
About the Author: A one-month cross-country trip on the highways of America in 1968 created a plethora of indelible images in a 12 year-oldÆs mind, but three things experienced along that trip stood at the forefront: Truck stops; Diesel trucks; and locally- and regionally-branded petroleum products marketing. These interests later manifested themselves in the form of the composition of many magazine articles; articles that saw print in "Automobilia" magazine; "Overdrive Truckers Magazine", and "Check The Oil!" magazine, among others. Guy is a graduate of the University of Oregon with a degree in Fine and Applied Arts/Graphic Design. After graduation, Guy was employed in several engaging and satisfying positions in the book and magazine publishing field.
