My old Pastor sold cars for a time, and he told of another man who used the old "slide the pen into their lap" trick. I guess there really is "nothing new under the sun"!

Nice job. Very entertaining. $585 was a lot of money back then.

1927 $585 dollars equates to about $7742.17 today.....

That really shows how tough it must have been to get that kind of money out of anyone in those days. Income was around $1200 or less for 1927

It almost cost as much as buying a Model T.....

Gee I wonder what the "highline" cost?

The Highline was the term for Municipal Power
