Herbert Pickett, Jr. writing:

      As mentioned above, we had our first closed sedan in 1929. A couple of years later Dad traded for a newer Chevrolet, a sort of sporty model whose two spare tires were mounted in wells in the front fender, rear view mirrors fastened to the top. I took my driver's test in this car in May 1933. That night I drove to dance; would I have let my boys do that? A year or so later, Dad read in "Consumer Reports" that Chrysler had developed a very special and advanced design in the DeSoto. Somehow, he bought one, but found it too luxurious, expensive and flashy and traded it for the first of many Plymouths. As to Camp vehicles, We had the Model T. pick-up only a year or two, then bought a Model A Ford station wagon, a 1929 model. We drove it back to Baltimore loaded with baggage, and it became the wheels of us teen-age drivers.
