    I stumbled across the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum during a long journey. This amazing collection documenting the US history of trucks is a tribute to ingenuity, design, and power. Though shooting conditions weren't ideal here is a sampling from my rushed 30 minute visit. More will follow.

    That '54 Fageol is awesome ... I'd convert it and live in it!

    Who knew such a museum existed? I need to take a drive up to Iowa to see it. I like Walker and the Fageol. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Needless to say it was one of the first to catch my eye. It's so sweet, who needs an Airstream.

    Caimi - I wish I had more than 30 min to shoot. There was so much to see and so many great close crops waiting to be shot. A huge regret was leaving my MFT and 7-14 at home. I was afraid it might get too banged up in the truck. These were shot with a Panasonic DMC-FZ60.

    More trucks to come shortly.

    Your recent photos inspired me to shoot today, though unlike yours the sun was out. I shot a companion piece to your farm stream in a more urban environment.

    Beautiful photos and trucks! Have stopped at the truck stop many times, but didn't know there was a truck museum there. I have to remember to stop by next time.

    I didn't either. I only noted it because of this display inside the truck stop. Growing up in the mountains by a military base, these throwbacks to the end of WWII were the heart throb of any high school boy.The museum is an enormous building and on the property next to it.

    Thanks for following this series. The Ryder truck is probably my 3rd favorite. If you find yourself on Iowa I-80, don't miss the museum and truck stop.
