Iowa 80 Truckstop Publishes 40th Anniversary Book (07/01/2004)

In celebration of its 40th Anniversary, Iowa 80 Truckstop has published a book chronicling the growth of Iowa 80 Truckstop since its opening in 1964. The book is a full color coffee table book containing 71 pages of history, photos and stories from various friends and employees.

“This book is a tribute to my dad,” says Delia Moon Meier. “He saw the potential for Iowa 80 back in 1963 when he scouted this property for Standard Oil. He was quite a visionary.”

The book, titled “The Perfect Spot” will be available at next week’s Walcott Truckers Jamboree, July 8-9. After that, books may be purchased in the Gift Store at Iowa 80 Truckstop, Interstate 80 & Exit 284, Walcott, Iowa or ordered on-line
