I was driving a '76 El Dorado drop top that once belonged to Matt Zuckerman, also of Atari. An 18-wheeler drove over and through the car. At the time, the car belonged to John Snead, president of BSN.
Matt gave the car to John Snead in lieu of $4,000 in a total payment of $25,000 for an agency agreement to sell AT&T SDN. Snead insured the car for $14,000. The insurance company settled for $9,800.
I still have a mangled hubcap from that car.
About Snead - I was on the sales management team at BSN. I wrote INTEGRITY in block letters and hung it on the wall. One day, Snead comes in, sees the sign and says, "Inntuhgritty? What's that?"
Snead hired me because I am a Marine. I doubled my annual income that year. Doubled it again the next year.
