    How about those Goodyear tire loads??? 45' vans stuffed from nose to tail w/ hundreds of tires all laced together. Some loads contained several different shipments. The only way you could tell one customer's freight from the other was w/ different colored chalk marks on the tires. Remember that freight?

    I had 4 GM dealerships on my peddle run in Syr (014). I was either always short or had some other dealers parts. Was always delivering free astrays as well -don't know how the os & d folks ever kept it straight

    How bout those 'Nutone' loads? All kinds of electronic ctns of door bells, hood fans etc. What garbage freight that was. I'd spend all nite stripping one of those loads. Hated them. Where'd they originate from... 022?

    Yeah try delivering those loads to the sears stores. 12oo tires going thru a small hole in the builing and down into the cellar.
    If you wernt good at rolling them you were by the time you were done 10 hours later.

    If that was what I had to do all day was volume load ,That was an easy day ,These guys were brutal to peddle for ,I had all the hours I needed back then even in the winter when every body was laid off we were still working 10 and 12 hour days..I can actually say with out a doubt,The friends and bonds I made will last a lifetime.even 23 years later.We're still the best.I found no other place like it and probably never will,I .I do it all over again.People do make the difference.
