Using my '64 4200 to pull one trailer on to another trailer. I sold my '48 American to another ATHS member who will restore it.

Getting my '56 WC22PLT ready to drive to a car show in Kilgore, Texas. At the show with Steve Friedlander and his '60 Autocar. Coming back from the show with the hammer down.

By 1980, White was insolvent. Volvo AB acquired the US assets of the company in 1981, while two energy-related companies based in Calgary, Alberta, Bow Valley Resource Services, and NovaCorp, an Alberta corporation, purchased the Canadian assets, including the Kelowna, British Columbia, plant, and the Western Star nameplate and product range.


Volvo produced trucks as White and Autocar through the 1980s, while Western Star continued independently in Canada and the United States, although Volvo-White–produced high cab over engine models were purchased and rebadged Western Star for sale in the Canadian market through the early 1990s.

In 1988, Volvo and General Motors merged their heavy truck divisions in North America, creating Volvo GM Heavy Truck Corporation and a new brand of trucks, White-GMC. Western Star was sold to Australian entrepreneur Terry Peabody in 1990. In 1995, Volvo purchased the stake of General Motors in their joint venture and rebadged White-GMC vehicles under the Volvo and Autocar nameplates. Subsequently, Western Star was resold by Peabody to DaimlerChrysler AG and merged with its Freightliner subsidiary. Volvo dropped any reference to White, and is now Volvo Trucks North America. Autocar remained a part of Volvo until 2000, when the trademark was withdrawn from the market, and was subsequently sold to Grand Vehicle Works together with the Xpeditor low cab forward heavy duty product, which remains in production under the Autocar badge, the last vestige of what was once America's leading commercial vehicle producer.

Y'all seam like the rite folks to ask. I've read that by 1980 white motor company was dissolved. So I'm curious if y'all might know what year was there last truck built? I just acquired and I'm about to put on the road a very clean low miles 1979 white western star, I love the truck to the point I will likely not work it much and just drive it enough to keep her loose. Thanks much in advance!

Thank you very much Bill for that link, I found several photos of Canadian Pacific's Drake Yard in downtown Vancouver where I started my trucking career with CP Merchandise Services in the 60's.

For governments who try to tax themselves into prosperity is like standing in a bucket and trying to lift themselves up by the handle.
