    I wondered where you had got to. There are several images on the net, but no information.

    I was looking at a 1961 Groveport-Madison High School Yearbook (where my Dad taught school from 1959-61) and really liked this picture of Ralph Smith on the supporters/advertisers page. Look close and you'll see he is holding a cigar in his right hand and a handkerchief in his left hand ready to dry perspiration from his forehead. I can hear Ralph say with a big smile as you walk in his showroom, "Howdy folks! Can I put you in a new Chevrolet today?" 100_6199 (1024x854).jpg

    We used to have a guy come through my neighborhood with one of these in the early 60s. It was a fun ride and we would all clamour for that coveted front seat because you got to pull the string that rang the bell.
