GenZe owners are hands down some of the best people out there. Every single one of them seems to be fun, caring, and loving life–not a bad group to fall into. Recently one of our customers came to our attention, and on top of meeting all normal customer criteria, he also secretly might be the […]

When it comes to wedding anniversaries, every year has a different theme. The 32nd anniversary is the year of conveyance, which couldn’t have come at a better time for Joan and Larry Diskin. While Larry was contemplating what method of conveyance would be the perfect gift, he spotted a GenZe truck on the freeway. He […]
