I dont think the image should stay unless you only shoot old trucks.
Plus Im not really into the fading gradients (background and writing)
Stick with solids.
I apologize if I sounded harsh, I'm just giving you my honest opinion.

Here is one I made quickly to just give you an idea of what I was talking about.

You said you wanted simple and clean, I do not see that in this.

The text is very hard to read for me on my calibrated monitor, so it is going to be off in printing as well.

To me it is very busy and conveys maybe a "we haul your junk cars" message rather than photography.

Go with a clean text front, then have a full image on the back. If you are worried about people thinking you shoot trucks, just list what style you shoot. The truck is a good image, it wont hurt having it on there.

Not digging the card at all. Just looks cheap in my honest opinion. Sometimes cleaner and simpler is better.

Make your name much, much larger. It's like a logo.
