Why the Blue Knob Auto Sales Experience is the Best Way to Buy a Used Car

The year was 1997. Titanic was in theaters, and there was no escaping Céline Dion’s My Heart Will Go On. Bill Clinton was serving his second presidential term. NASA launched the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft. The first Harry Potter book was published in England. Most importantly of all, Blue Knob Auto Sales was opening its doors in Duncansville, PA.

Back then, we had only 15 employees, barely any used cars to sell, and limited financing options. Today, we have sold over 100,000 vehicles — not only to drivers from the greater Altoona, Ebensburg, Huntingdon, and Hollidaysburg area, but to people all over the world. Though the 90’s already feel like a lifetime ago, that’s a huge amount of growth in a short time.

How do you account for our rise to the top? It all

Truck | vehicle | Britannica

Truck, also called lorry, any motor vehicle designed to carry freight or goods or to perform special services such as fire fighting. The truck was derived from horse-driven wagon technology, and some of the pioneer manufacturers came from the wagon business. Because of a well-developed system of roads and highways in North America and Europe, trucks have come to carry most intercity freight, with the exception of bulk materials such as ores, which are typically still carried by ship and rail, and time-critical deliveries, which are usually carried between cities by air. Trucks enjoy an almost total monopoly in intracity freight delivery because of their ability to deliver goods directly to recipients.

In 1896 Gottlieb Daimler of Germany built the first motor truck. It was equipped with a four-horsepower engine and

Pocket Guide to Large Truck and Bus Statistics


Overview

FMCSA’s 2019 Pocket Guide to Large Truck and Bus Statistics highlights the Agency’s role in collecting and analyzing data on large trucks and buses. Intended as a compact reference, it is a compilation of statistics from the overall state of the industry to enforcement activity, details on traffic violations and other incidents, the costs of crashes, and more. These data are used in support of our mission to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries. The Pocket Guide can serve as a valuable, compact resource for industry representatives, Federal agencies, and other individuals interested in motor carrier safety regulations and performance data. It will be updated periodically in the future as new data are collected and analyzed. Previous versions of the Pocket Guide can be found in the archives section on this page.  

The Pocket Guide incorporates and replaces the one-page data summaries, “Commercial Motor Vehicle Facts,” published occasionally

“Here in Bethlehem, we have been supplying Oxygen to the hospitals in New York City and New Jersey. All of our drivers have stepped up their game and have gone above and beyond without question.

Two drivers, in particular, have shared stories with me that made them feel something they never felt before.”

1️⃣ Tim Barnes was delivering in New York City and the fire department was clearing a call. When they noticed our truck coming down the street, they stood together and clapped and gave our driver a thumbs up because they knew he was delivering Oxygen to the hospitals.

Tim said, “As I drive by the firehouse, I look at them as heroes and when they cheered as I drove by, I felt like I was the hero. I was honored to have them do that. It made me feel
