Over the course of this time, there have been hundreds of truck manufacturers, some of which are still around today and others that have fallen by the wayside despite making some excellent vehicles. This guide is an encyclopedia of all the major truck-builders, as well as being a guide to some of the more interesting and specialist minor manufacturers. Entries describe in detail the history of each particular company and of course the models for which they are famous.
