In the film, the host started in the industry during the 1970s, when his partner was an elderly gentleman who had an old tractor, and needed some help. Asphalt companies used only oil-based sealcoaters back then. Owners could mix the asphalt with fuel oil. That’s incredibly dangerous, but the people who owned them didn’t even know it back then, and there were virtually no rules. Also, they had little experience with the business of marketing. They visited every residence and demanded that their driveways be closed. Some people were willing to accept but some people refused.
