1946: "One of those new Crosley cars."
- (Le Mars, Iowa Globe-Post, Thursday, Nov. 21, 1946:)
Ray Wilmes, formerly of Le Mars, now living at Sioux City, was in Le Mars Tuesday morning with one of those new Crosley cars. The little Crosley is about the size of an Austin, of which there were a few around. It is so light, Mr. Wllmes said, that when he got stuck in the mud Tuesday morning, he had no difficulty lifting and pushing the car on to firm ground.
