And president of the Ford Motor Company before Kennedy appointed him.

Citation I said, "Find out who's buying Volkswagens. Everybody says it's a no-good car. It was only selling about 20,000 a year but I want to know what's gonna happen. Is it gonna stay the same, go down, or go up? Find out who buys them." He came back six months later, he said: "Well, they're professors, and they're doctors and they're lawyers, and they're obviously people who can afford more." Well, that set me to thinking about what we in the industry should do. Was there a market we were missing? At this time nobody believed Americans wanted cheaper cars. They wanted conspicuous consumption. Cadillac, with these huge, ostentatious fins set the style for the industry for 10 or 15 years. And that's what we were up against. We introduced the Falcon as a more economical car and it was a huge success profit-wise. We accomplished a lot.
There were about 40,000 deaths per year from automobile accidents and about a million, or a million-two injuries. In a crash, the driver was often impaled on the steering wheel. The passenger was often injured because he'd hit the windshield or the header bar, or the instrument panel. So in the 1956 model Ford we introduced steering wheels that prevented being impaled. We introduced padded instrument panels, and we introduced seat belts. We estimated if there would be 100 percent use of the seat belts we could save 20-odd thousand lives a year.
Everybody was opposed to it. You couldn't get people to use seat belts. But those who did saved their lives."

It's wrong to leave it as unknown 'Patton'. It's make tank not appear in Unidentified

Call it M48 'Patton' . Some wiseguy later will tell us it is A1, A2 or A3..
