Want to bump this back to the top. Lot of history on a great trucking company quickly fading away.

Thank God for ATHS.

Jerry (8/10/2011)
Thanks to everyone for the welcomes.  Glenn, I was at Rose terminal in Tulsa in 1965.  Clyde Buckner was the terminal manager.  I think his wife's name was Joy; her brother had been the assistant manager; don't remember his name.  Unfortunately, the brother, his wife and several of their children had just been killed in an automobile accident, and I was sent to replace him.  I rememberthat only one young boy survived and he was living with the Buckners.  We lived in company housing next door to them; the same house her brother had been living in.  That was a bad situation, under the circumstances.  I doubt anyone could have pleased them, simply because of the shock of the recent deaths.  I simply was not him, could never be, and it was hard for them.  I was not there long, and since we are from the Tulsa area, we moved on from there and lived in Tulsa for the next 45 years.  I drove local for Consolidated Freightways  for 31 years, until I retired; so I consider Tulsa my home town, although I was born in Hulbert, OK.  We have now moved to Claremore, OK about a year ago; some of our family lived there already and we got a good deal on a house that is semi-rural. 

 Since you started working at Mack in 1965 we might have crossed paths without knowing it.  I remembered the truck dealerships you mentioned; the town surely is a lot different now.

Glen:  Back then the Tulsa Mack dealer was Perry Harper, who sold a lot of Macks to us at Cities Service Oil (CITGO).  Perry replaced all his Lincoln nomemclature with Mack along with a MACK on the fron of the hood and a Bulldog hood ornement.  Glee

Jerry, you sparked one in me also, many a time I would gap or change points on a 531 White engine (it had dual points) along the side of the road.

also welcome and I enjoyed your memory of times gone by, but still alive in us.

Jerry,

WELCOME to the board. We love to hear about the old trucking companies. The only thing better is if pictures come with the stories.
