That photo brought back memories. Dad had a very successful recap business from 1957 or so until 1970. He sent me to Reading with a truck load of recap molds to be machines so they could produce tires that could be studded. Of course the truck was emblazoned with the company name etc and of course I blew a tire on the PA Turnpike and of course there was no spare.

I thought that looked familiar. Always a Chevy?


Marshall Beasley of Rochester, NY, was in a bit of trouble when a press photographer happened upon him on March 2, 1959. He was in the used tire business and had just picked up a load of tires when he had a flat. Unfortunately he had neither a spare or any tools or a jack to help him fix his own flat.
