formally of A Company, with letters in hand, sits inside
his new car in late 1946. According to the story,
Fitzpatrick, an insurance salesman, needed the car for
work. He could not get a car no matter how many
times he went to dealers. He finally contacted the
head of General Motors, C.E. Wilson, by writing to him,
and told him his problem. He got his new car.
