When I was a little kid my favorite toys were Tonka Trucks in the sandbox. I had them all. The dump truck, crane, car hauler, bulldozer, and cement mixer. And I supplied the noise for all of them. My mom said she would put me outside in the sandbox with a few of those trucks and I was good to go for hours. My dad then was also a terminal manager for Roadway and I loved big trucks too. I remember sitting in a few Ford C Series Tractors on a couple of Saturday mornings in the terminal. Ford made the C-Series from 1957 - 1990 - (somehow I remember that)
The Ford C-Series was Roadways cab of choice in those days. I even knew the Models and letters of the models then. I also knew about the big trucks like Kenworth, Peterbuilt, and Mack! I knew the difference between a conventional truck and a cab-over. I just loved trucks, probably because my dad knew a lot about them.
