Does anyone remember the TV program "I GOT A SECRET," with host Gary Moore ? One contestant's secret was that he had backstage, a solar powered Model T. Of Course three members of the Panel were not able to guess the secret and one panelist disqualified herself because she had arrived late and had to pass the T. Backstage.
When they brought out the T. those who had worked
on the installation were riding in the T.
Actually, it was a Baker Electric outfitted with solar panels:
I've Got a Secret March 16, 1960
Cullen, Palmer, Morgan, Myerson, Moore
Charles Escoffery (Has Solar powered car onstage)
Escoffery demonstrates solar cell
George Graff (Wrote song 'When Irish eyes are smiling')
Olivia DeHavilland (Tests hand steadiness of panel)

Here is Charles Escoffery's obituary:
I must have missed that one or I'd sure remember the Model "T"! I'd like to say I'm too young to remember that TV show, but unfortunately, I do! I probably can't spell them all correctly, but the panel was Henry Morgan, Bennett Cerf, Dorothy Kilgallen and Jane Meadows. Gosh,....hadn't thought of that in years! The human brain is unbelievable! (....even mine!) I can remember useless stuff like that, but don't ask me what I had for breakfast yesterday (whatever day that was!)
Oops,...I did forget about Arlene Francis
Erik - You type faster than me, but I don't remember the Baker Electric either!
Actually, I'm starting to regret posting on this thread at all, because while I do remember the people, I think I'm getting two old quiz shows mixed together,....I've Got a Secret, and What's My Line! Maybe my 72 year old brain is more screwed up than I thought!
Oops! Got distracted and did the double post thing,...yep! I'm absolutely goin' downhill fast, physically AND mentally!
OK guys, I goofed. I guess as the other half says
I really do have CRS.
