Video/News: Here’s What The Trucking Industry “Used To Be”

There are two types of truck drivers — older drivers who say trucking ain’t what it used to be, and newer drivers who’ve never experienced what it used to be. Whichever category you fall in, this short documentary called On the boulevard is a fun look back at the trucking industry in the 70s. The clip, which was recently discovered in the University of California, Berkeley Film Archive by the folks over at Overdrive Magazine, follows several truckers in the Midwest and is a great glimpse at the camaraderie, attitude, and lingo of the time.Watch Video:
