Re: Truck Images Circa 1930

And GMCs, side of the story... Alfred P Sloan's GM was notorious for whacking the inner city electric street trollies across the country--so they could install the GM yellow bus transit system, My own mother held a grudge against GM for doing this her whole life, starting about the yr she was born 32,, and would never consider buying anything GM.

"“Announcement of the details was issued for the General Motors Corporation by Alfred P. Sloan Jr., President of that organization. The statement of John Hertz, President of the Yellow Cab Company, and Lehman Brothers, the bankers for the latter company, was issued through the law firm of Chadbourne, Stanchfield & Levy"
GMC's -yellow truck story starts 3/4 down this page.
