Mother Crabtree - Spirit of the mother of a small town lawyer that possessed the chassis of a 1928 Porter automobile on the sitcom MY MOTHER THE CAR/NBC/1965-66.

1928 Porter Car from MY MOTHER THE CAR - Located at Stars Cars Museum in Tennessee

The storyline follows lawyer Dave Crabtree (Jerry Van Dyke) shopping for an inexpensive car at a used-car lot only to have the car talk to him when he sat down in the black buttoned upholstery behind the wheel. The voice (heard over the car's radio) was his mother's whom had returned from the afterlife in the form of a vintage touring car.

Dave immediately paid $200 and drove it home. Now whenever he had a problem he'd visited the garage and talked to his mom (voice of Ann Sothern). See also "Dave Crabtree"
