The final issue of TRUCK - the magazine they didn't want you to read!

The November issue of CM’s sister title Truck & Driver will include the forgotten pages from the last issue of TRUCK magazine.

In September 2004, after 29 years and 11 months, the final issue of TRUCK magazine hit the shelves.

But instead of going out in a blaze of glory, this iconic magazine was killed on the quiet. The publisher who closed it removed any mention of it being the final issue, and 16 pages of tributes and finger-pointing were slashed. Even the cover, and celebratory DAF wall-planner were pulled.

The missing pages have now been unearthed, and will finally see the light of day in Truck & Driver (on sale 8 October). The issue will also include a double-sided DAF 2020 wall-planner.

This is your chance to see the magazine they never wanted you to read!
