The LTL Archives
Since I was a little boy, LTL trucks have been a part of my life. It wasn't until I found Hank's Truck Pictures that I found that I could share my interest with everyone! Since 2006, I've been taking photos of LTL trucks around my neighborhood and on the highway. Through the forum on Hank's Truck Pictures, I've managed to make many friends through my pictures and theirs.
LTL is constantly changing with mergers and buyouts. Because of this, I decided I would archive my pictures on this site. I hope that you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!
