Crosley, 1949, switched back to drum brakes 6 months later , had problems. Some of the Crosley radios were about as large as the car. Company founded in 1920 by Powell Crosley because he was aghast at the cost ( $135 ) of a current radio made by a soon to be competitor. He made his own for $35 and decided to start his own company. Other than cars and radios he made AM/FM radios, portable suitcase - styled record players and turntables, record changers, multi- functional audio cassette/compact disc players, jukeboxes, music boxes, telephones and more. Best childhood friend was a heavyset boy with a lisp names Hugo. Lost his virginity at the age of 11 to a local strumpet named "Loosey Lucy". Crosley Field, ( home of the first nighttime baseball game), in Cincinnati Ohio named after him. His favorite saying was "Hubba Hubba" which he would do while waggling his eyebrows.
