Yellow | ABF Pay Increases Relative To Inflation

I pay cash for all my cars, a ‘66 MGB, my daily driver, a 67 BGT, when it rains and a 65 cornbinder, D1200 when I go to the dump! :17142:

Mrs El gets the new ones.
(Payments included)

Is this D1200 3/4 ton?
My cousin bought a new Johnny Reb IHC,late 60s or early 70s.
Ive never seen another one, have you?

Heavy 3/4, 7700 GVW, 304, automatic, PS, PB & Posi. Hates being empty.

Never seen one at all. I guess they made less than 500? in 1971. Mine is the more rounded front end, kinda like a modern Ram, first year.
 
Mine came from fixing bicycles, pedal cars, tonka trucks .....................................
My brother left home at age 18 in 1967. I left at age 18 in 1969. One of the first things my Dad did was take all of our Tonka trucks to work and gave them away. I collected Bazooka baseball cards all through the late fifties and early to mid sixties. Who knows what became of it.
 
We were better off 44 years ago! Here's a rerun of a post I made back in 2014...

Check out this article from the August 1974 edition of the "Ohio Teamster"! Remember these wages? Adjusted for inflation (compliments of DollarTimes.com - Financial Calculators and Save Money Guide) here's a sampling...

City Driver 1974 $6.80 per hour, 2014 $34.30 per hour
Dock Worker 1974 $6.75 per hour, 2014 $34.05 per hour

Road Driver-Single Trailer 1974 $.17225 per mile, 2014 $.8689 per mile
Road Driver-Doubles Trailer 1974 $.1825 per mile, 2014 $.9206 per mile

7-1-74 wage increase 1974 .$.30 per hour, 2014 $1.51 per hour.
7-1-74 cost of living increase 1974 $.11 per hour, 2014 $.55 per hour.

7-1-74 Pension Contribution 1974 $19.50 per week, 2014 $98.36 per week (Remember max pension was around $750/mo in 1974 dollars or $3783/mo in 2014 dollars)
7-1-74 H&W Contribution 1974 $19.00 per week, 2014 $95.84 per week.

Freight Teamsters are WAY behind what they were making 40 years ago! Inflation and concessions have eaten away any gains they fought to get years ago!

Read it and weep!

These old binders were built like tanks.
Dad bought a new(naked) 1954 R130 $1600, no R&H, we built a stake body, every kid around learned to drive it
in our pasture.
Dad and I were the only ones that could change gears on the nonsynchromesh Trans.
I don't think many Johnny Rebs were built, my cousin's had a V8, don't remember what size.
