David Lee Parker with his MG, by Barbara Jean Smith Parker

This was such a special red car. The young man driving it was and is pretty special too. He worked many hours to earn enough money to buy this car and was determined to get the one he wanted. He found this MG at Joe Thrall Motors and took his dad to see it. He had just enough money and laid it all out but asked his dad for fifty cents more. His dad said no and David had to break another dollar. Bill came home and told me about it and said that he was so proud of David for doing what he did and working so hard to get what he wanted that he didn't want to take away the feeling of having done it all himself-down to the last penny. At least that is the way the story was told to me. Wish he still had that special car.
