Ma Moore evidently meant business.

“Those beautiful cars he brought home (from Detroit), none ever went back south with him,” Barb, 78, continued. “One of Ted’s brothers would always end up with a nice used car.

“That light blue convertible certainly got the attention of all the girls,” she added on the snazzy Lincoln, which also put protective mothers like Glen Moore on red alert.
