Vintage commercial trucks, semis, and tractor-trailers are an incredible subset of the automotive hobby.

Just like any classic vehicle, these heavy-haulers, 18-wheelers, and big rigs ooze style with a healthy dose of “get-it-done” utilitarianism.

OnAllCylinders had boots on the ground at the American Truck Historical Society (ATHS) annual convention this past weekend in Lexington, KY. From Peterbilts to Kenworths, COEs to sleeper cabs, check out all of the vintage big rigs below—including one from the most critically-acclaimed TV series of all time: BJ and the Bear.

We’re far from experts on spotting all the unique nuances of these vintage commercial trucks, so if you see something special we may have overlooked in these photos, let us know in the comments section below.

(Oh, and you may want a set of these babies when you’re finished.)
