A listener from Jackson recently donated a classic 1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe sedan to Michigan Radio. Touted as the "One For `41" and "America's Low Cost Luxury Car," this car came with Powermatic shifting, an almost heart-shaped grille and a “Fashion-Tone Interior.”

This 1941 Plymouth is the oldest car ever donated to the station’s vehicle donation program. It will start its next act supporting the programs that make Michigan Radio special.

In celebration of Mother's Day, we wanted to share a heartwarming story about a mom and her daughter--and the car and love of public radio that united them.

I am honoring my mother by donating our car to Michigan Radio.

My mother, Beverly Decker, was the one who bought this Toyota Camry brand new in 2002. She was so proud of it.  Over the years, she slowly lost the ability to walk and drive. She generously gave this car to us and I drove it for 10 years. I commuted to work in the Camry and always felt safe.
