Focus on Texas: Trucks

Texans love their trucks, and Texans’ cameras seem to have an affinity for old, beloved trucks

As a child’s toy, they haul rocks up from the driveway and track mud across freshly washed floors. Full-sized, they can be used to haul loads for family, friends and neighbors. They are valuable tools on ranches and farms and give drivers a sense of freedom and identity. Trucks keep Texas moving.
