ABSTRACT
The article discusses the golden anniversary of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company's pioneering interstate truck line Wingfoot Express in 2007. The first interstate trucking route with regular non-stop runs from the Akron, Ohio tire factory to Goodyear's tire fabric mill in Connecticut was established in 1918 by a five-ton Packard with a 10-foot-high specially built body. The Wingfoot Express truck will celebrate its anniversary with stops at Wingfoot Tire Center grand openings.
