If CCJ was trucking publishing’s version of The Beatles back in the ’70s, then Overdrive was its version of The Rolling Stones — darker, edgier and — as this photo gallery shows — far more likely to be drinking, taking drugs and hanging out with hot chicks.
Today, CCJ’s sister publication is a respected business magazine for Owner-Operators. But back in 1977, Overdrive was a very different beast altogether.
