When Tommy Dorsey heard Walter P. Chrysler lament: "I don't think I can afford my yacht these days," the bandleader immediately bought it.
Dorsey bought a tiny Crosley car, and kept it aboard his big yacht, in lieu of one of the lifeboats. He explained: "If, during a storm, I should have to dock somewhere with this car aboard I won't have to wait in the rain for a taxi."
