Back in the 1960's, when Quin was working for Ocean Cement, the company hired a photographer to shoot some promo pictures of the company. Quin got to pose with his Freightliner COE. Years later Quin found a Motor Carrier magazine with his picture in it. Here is the picture of Quin taken at the New Westminster Ocean Cement depot.
