Prototype History:
White Motor Company ended car production after World War I and began producing trucks. The company soon sold 10 percent of all trucks made in the US. The WC series of trucks went into production in 1949 to replace the earlier WB-series trucks. The WC series was the companies main heavy-hauler until they were in turn replaced by the 3000-series Cab-Over-Engine models.

Road Name History:
Rheingold Beer, introduced in 1883, is a New York beer that held 35 percent of the state's beer market from 1950 to 1960.[citation needed] The company was sold by the founding Jewish American Liebmann family[1] in 1963. According to the New York Times, "Rheingold Beer was once a top New York brew guzzled regularly by a loyal cadre of workingmen who would just as soon have eaten nails as drink another beer maker's suds."[2] Its VP-Technical Joseph Owades claims credit for Rheingold's developing the first light beer.

Rheingold shut down operations in 1976, when they were unable to compete with the large national breweries, as corporate consolidation and the rise of national breweries led to the demise of dozens of regional breweries.

The label was revived in 1998 by Terry Liebmann and partner Mike Mitaro.[citation needed] The beer's evocative name is an allusion to Germany's great river Rhein as well as Richard Wagner's opera Das Rheingold.
