    I remember graduating from truck school 10/74. A little black girl in a C & H Cab Over drove up to the building; (maybe 4'10' tall) and climbed down the steps. She had a flat bed of heavy iron plumbing.Women were unheard of truck driver's, then. Chauffeurs license, no CDL crap;( meaning all you needed was your regular driver's license.) (Or several of them). Deregulation was a gradual death sentence for o/o's. Motor 100% power; big company's will set max power @ 2/3; put on 800,000 miles; turn it up to full power! Beware .Not many o/o's left. Uncle Sam has taken all the life of true enjoyable trucking. No more Log Books (2 or 3) to get the product to the docks, then rest. Now, a supply chain? Nothing but Swift, Schneider, Hunt,more. In fact i heard these compliant indentured servant company's have on board cameras now watching you! Sure do hope you don't have to use your Gatorade bottle! Too much more to talk about, but i always wanted to work for C & H Transfer from the very beginning.
