They always drove Chevrolets, the online version of the Memphis, Tenn. based Commercial Appeal, quoted Hubert McAlexander, a professor of English, in an article about a special reception for McAlexander’s book, Strawberry Plains Audobon Center: Four Centuries of a Mississippi Landscape.

“The reason they could do it was the family always drove Chevrolets,” said McAlexander of the sisters. “Margaret Finley Shackelford never had a color TV. They were too expensive.”
