Description:

Of all the companies that have produced semi trucks in the last 100 years, only the Mack name has become synonymous with power and durability, making the phrase "Built like a Mack Truck" a poignant truism. Mack has always been the dominating innovator in the industry. It was the first company to engineer a cab-over design, the first to patent a constant-mesh transmission, and was responsible for the first hook-and-ladder fire truck in 1910. In the years since, Mack trucks have hauled goods and assisted in the construction of everything from roads to dams. Vintage models are actively collected and restored by a healthy enthusiast following. Mack Trucks draws on Ron Adams' extensive photographic archive to chronicle the development of Mack trucks from 1900 to the present.
