Reimer also started out with Whites. At this time, Wisconsin was still 45 ft. overall length, so no room for a sleeper. Tony Gussie Collection. Another shot of a Reimer trailer being pulled by a White 3000. It shows a better view of the trailer. Tony Gussie Collection.
A "butt-nose" (3000) White. They were popular because thet were short and you could at least stretch out in the "sleeper". Tony Gussie Collection. Reimer had the checkerboard rear doors right from the start. Tony Gussie Collection. Getting fancy here. The units have roof signs. Tony Gussie Collection.
Switching over to Macks (H-63s), but still all green. These units will shortly be repainted in the familiar two-tone green and white paint scheme. The tall fella is Walter Toews, who I ran double with later at East-West. This guy was a master with two sticks. Tony Gussie Collection. This was one of the last of the Whites. Overall length by now was 50 ft.,and the whole operation was team. Tony Gussie Collection. A gathering of Bulldogs. You can see #53 in the new paint scheme. Tony Gussie Collection.
Not sure why Reimer would be pulling a PIX trailer. Note the clearance (or lack thereof) between the cab and the reefer. ALL Reimers tractors had underslung mufflers back then, and nobody liked having to get by one of their rigs on those two lane roads because , if he had his foot in it , you were in a dirty cloud of diesl smoke for a couple of miles. Tony Gussie Collection. Reimer Express White in the foreground. This picture is here because it's the only one I have of the little Buttnose Binders (in the background) that were so popular back then. This one is with International Transport.
