    Did the first Model T's have the crank on the front to start it?
    If so, it had to be a real adventure to restart it after each stop.
    Wonder how long the motorcycle fleet lasted?
    Imagine the horrid acceleration of that VW bus with maybe 40 horsepower loaded to the gills during peak!
    Not to mention not much of a top speed either!

    These pictures tell us a lot about the history of UPS and the men and women who have made it a powerful company.
    Gotta love the bubble style concept, had no idea UPS copyrighted this design in 1965, the 1971 fleet photo is classic.

    II was still crap but not as bad as I. III was the first DIAD that was any good but also the last that was any use as a dog beater.
