Re: Great old pictures

Having worked on a different type of assembly line years ago I'd say Keith hit it pretty well in post 11. A small percentage were true car or truck guys but for the majority it was just the good paying job that they put in their 40 at every week. And the second or third generations working in the same plant was a real thing as when you graduated from Highschool your dad or uncle took you down to the plant and introduced you to what served as the HR people then and they usually knew you were coming. You got your job, went though a bit of training and went out on the line where you could work until you retire if you kept your nose clean.

77 C 30 dualie, 454, 4 speed with a 10 foot flatbed and hoist. It does the heavy work and hauls the projects around.
