With 60 years or so under its fan belt, Sam's-U-Drive is a Southern California institution, as was its colorful founder, Sam Greenberg. Celebrating the anniversary for this Van Nuys-based truck-and-just-about-everything-else rental firm is bittersweet because it also marks the company's fourth year without Sam. Sam--he wasn't big on last names--died suddenly in 1991, leaving son Steve to run the family business. Succession is always tricky for family-run companies.
