Old Trucks At Old Car City, USA

Where has this old Mack bulldog been, and what has it seen...? Photo: Jack Roberts

HDT Senior Editor Jack Roberts recently stopped in at Old Car City, USA, while on a test drive. The site has been an automotive graveyard since 1931 and is the final resting place for a wide array of old cars, trucks and vans from the Golden Age of the Automobile. Photos highlight some of the old working trucks and vans slowly melting away in the woods near White, Georgia.

Classic Style. Classic Comfort?

Not many luxuries in this 1963 Hayes COE. With a 6V-72 Detroit and a 4x3 transmission, the driver would have done better to get paid by the gear shift rather than the mile. Photo by Jim Park

While some veteran drivers might jump at the chance, you'd likely have a hard time getting one of today's 20-something drivers into an '80s-vintage or earlier truck. Check out these photos highlighting some of the cab interiors that preceded the luxury yachts we call over the road trucks today.
