From The Lyons Den by Leonard Lyons, November 14, 1940:
- View SourcePowel Crosley, Jr., told of a Crosley carowner who had run out of gas, and persuaded a Cadillac driver to tow him to a gas station.
The cars were linked, and then the Cadillac driver started racing, from 50, then 60 and finally up to 70 miles an hour. A motorcycle cop started in pursuit. The Crosley driver became alarmed, and sounded his horn to warn the Cadillac driver who ignored the honking, and increased the speed to 80, to elude the cop. At 80 the motorcycle cop halted. He told his superior officer: "Now I've seen everything.
I was trying to catch a Cadillac doing 70, the driver steps it up to 80 and what do I see? One of those little Crosleys behind him,
giving him the horn."
