The average cost of a new house was $82,200, a gallon of gas cost 91 cents, and the price of a new car was $7,983.00. We didn’t have fax machines, cell phones, or email and desktop computers were rare. However, smaller and cheaper gadgets were hitting the marketplace and the first CD player was sold in Japan.
Doctors performed the first artificial heart implant designed by Robert Jarvik and while Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan forged a life long relationship, there was serious tension between them, as Argentina and the UK went to war over the Falkland Islands.
And Fleetpro has had a few changes too… Many of us have had children who are now grown. KJ Reynolds says, “I remember picking Matt up from school for Tom, I’d go to his kindergarten class and have to get him from the playground while he was running around… now he is running operations! Four of our employees’ children now work at Fleetpro.
Says Tom Farcosky, “Yes things have changed and so have we. One thing remains the same though, and that is our promise to our customers… we will work hard everyday to deliver a high quality service that permits you to increase your fleet productivity and reduce overall maintenance costs.”
From all of us at Fleetpro, thank you for the years of memories, your commitment to Fleetpro, your confidence in our service and for making us who we are today. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
