In 1988 the Hubble Space Telescope explores deep space. The Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed and exploded over Lockerbie in Scotland on December 21st. In 1988 Prozac was sold for the first time as an anti-depressant. The popular movies of 1988 included Rain Man, Die Hard and A Fish Called Wanda. That same year Frank Munoz, owner of Kern Commercial Cleaning of Bakersfield, CA, walked into the Aztec booth at the BSCAI trade show. Frank absolutely refused to believe Aztec’s claims about the Sidewinder System. Things got to the point where Frank called the owners liars, so Aztec shipped a Sidewinder to him for a free trial. Frank stripped 40,000 sq/ft in just 3 hours on that very first night with the Sidewinder. If you meet Frank today, he will enthusiastically tell you how happy he is with his Aztec equipment. In fact, he’ll also tell you that his vintage 1988 Sidewinder is still running strong.
