Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s Wingfoot Express promotional truck line is 90 years old.

In 1917, a five-ton Packard with a 10-foot-high body established the first interstate trucking route with regular nonstop runs from Goodyear's Akron, Ohio, tire factory to the company’s tire fabric mill in Connecticut, according to Goodyear officials.

The truck, now a promotional tool, "symbolizes 90 years of delivering business solutions for our customers from the time the original tire is placed on a new truck and through its life cycle."
