Never heard of it either. Does anyone else refer to the 24 ft container trucks as the 'Hun"? Maybe that's only local.
We had two of those old Ford C 600 tilt cabs.They were hand-me-downs from the NYC furniture operation.When I first started driving, it was an old Ford tiltcab 24 footer that had a funny looking air dam mounted over the cab. It was a Feeder Department hand-me-down. City van 40003 was nick-named "Darth Vader".
