Peterbilt Motors photos

Photos of Peterbilt trucks from around the world, from my personal collection, collections of others, old publications, brochures and factory photos.

I've been obsessed with Peterbilt since 1970 when I was given an AMT model kit of a Peterbilt 359 "California Hauler."  In 1975 I traveled to the Newark, California former headquarters for my 14th birthday and toured the factory, I also toured the Madison, Tennessee factory the following year.  My love for trucks was put on the back-burner until 1999 when I rekindled my obsession.  The love for Peterbilts is stronger now, and I have become friends with many other red-oval fans, current and former Peterbilt staff and engineers along with truck lovers world wide.  Now, thirty years after my first trip to the old Newark factory I flew to Denton, Texas and spent several days at Peterbilt Motors.  The Red Oval Obsession continues CLICK HERE!

I'd like to thank everyone who supplies me photos for the site, some ask to remain anonymous, and I respect their privacy.

The primary reason for the many photos is to aid scale model builders with reference and idea photos, and to share the many different types and configurations of Peterbilt.  Speaking of scale model trucks, check out my model trucks at www.timstrucks.com   and look for  Model Cars Magazine at www.modelcarsmag.com published by Golden Bell Publishing, I take care of the Truckers Corner column each issue.
