My Dad hauled cars out of Lansing, Michigan for 27 years, they are "T" or "R" hooks or sometimes called frame hooks. They used to use "J" hooks but at some point GM told them they couldn't use the "J" s any more only T's and R's. This time of year was always interesting if there was a significant change in the cars as the trucking company figured out what/how many they could haul on the various types of trucks and what/where they couldn't tie down without damaging the cars. With The car carriers it was hard to slip by with being overweight, after about 2-3 weeks commercial carrier enforcement had a pretty good idea of what to count on the truck to know if they were overweight. Example one year if you had any combination of more than 5 88's or 98's they knew you were at least 500#s over on the drive axle. Another year if they didn't see at least 3 Cutlasses they knew you were over gross weight.
