    As I was heading home yesterday I came across a trans am stinger heading south bound on i35 in Dallas tx loaded with 3 cars. This is the same reefer company based in Olathe Ks. I know hogan hauls for carmax but. Unless they (tran am) have a dedicated account, how are they gonna attract new drivers to haul cars for them with their shady reputation?

    Doubt they'll hire drivers with less than 12 mos. Class-8 truck experience.
    Hogan hires drivers right out of cdl school for their divisions, except for car hauling. Car hauling required 12 mos. Class-8 truck experience.

    I saw elsewhere that this is an owner op. It also said he was their only car hauling rig, but don’t know if either is accurate.
