William "Bill" Combs

interviewed 21 November 1974
Bill Combs (born 1900) was a lifelong mechanic and garage owner. He enjoys talking about automobiles, of course, and in this interview he remembers the Model T (from personal experience). Listen to him compare today's cars with those of yesteryear. And who else knows why a Model T would sometimes backfire when cranked?
