A-P-A founder passes.

Red Horse

Recommended Posts

Well the Mack community lost an old customer the other day when Arthur Imperatore died at age 95.  Coming back from WW II, he and his brothers started A-P-A.  Their red Macks were always very visible in the Northeast.  In today's WSJ...."Under his stern direction A-P-A prospered, partly by fending off mobsters and taming unions."..."The trucking industry," he sometimes said, "is not to be confused with Sunday school".

I do believe we have a few members here who drove for A-P-A.
