April 1974 - Spring Meeting

Date: April 1974
Location: New York City, Waldorf-Astoria

The following is an article that appeared in the May 1974 issue of Automotive Fleet.

"The worst appears behind us," commented one AFLA member as the Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association (AFLA) met at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. "Things are improving, but still could be better."

And with this attitude, fully supported by improved market conditions in the standard and intermediate-size vehicles, AFLA tackled the problems of buying and selling at their Annual Meeting in April.

Harry Quinn of ARI began the meeting with the keynote address on "Today's Challenge." Duke Tookman of Fleetway Leasing then followed, addressing his remarks on "Managerial Considerations in Buying and Selling." Tookman discussed how the nation's companies are not through with the standard-size vehicle. "In fact," he explains, "one company wants their engineers to be in a safe car with no driver fatigue, so they have held to the larger-sized vehicles. Another company will not let a driver buy or use a Vega, Pinto, etc., until they have test-driven one. After the test drive, the larger, more comfortable car becomes more to their liking."
