After 20 years I needed a change and liquidated my Jeep parts store, Great Pumpkin Enterprises. As the world turns I was hauling cars and actually fell into the Import Export business I owned throughout the 90s, C.A.R.S INTERNATIONAL. We were the largest shipper in the northwest of everything and anything that rolled. construction equipment, airplanes, all types of vehicles, vintage and otherwise, as well as motor homes, trailered boats and motorcycles. When Ship Happens first came about I was at my friend Dave Bryant’s tire store, Country Roads Distributing, a company name I owned for several years and actually gave him. Late afternoon I said guys I need to go ship some cars, see you later. Dave then piped up with, Ship Happens. A light came on in my head and I immediately went to the office, called my attorney and trade marked the slogan. That’s where it all started, sometime in the early 90s.
