QUESTION 27
INTERVIEWER:

Was it exciting to have a Ford car?

RAYMOND HAIGHT:

It is probably one of the more exciting moments of my life. The first thing that happened, my mother decided to teach me. We went to the LaBrea tar pits. In those days, they were real tar pits. When I was a eight-year-old, I fell into one of those oily tar pits. She took me over there, and she turned me loose, and I discovered that the car didn't always turn if you didn't turn the wheel, and I gave her many exciting moments, and then my first week, I had three accidents in my Model A. In my third one, I was side-swiped by some fella who went through a red light, and ended up in a nursery with flower pots in my rumble seat.

INTERVIEWER:

[laughs] Can we stop for a second?
