This is what he wrote to us.
I came across your web site and decided to give you a note. I was born in Elkhart IN and now live the summer months south of Elkhart about 6 miles. My Father, Myles N. Schooley, worked at Crows as a mechanic and salesman until they went out of business in about 1923. He bought a new Crow from the company, and I have a picture of him in the car. I have some small parts and tools that he had kept. He sold the car around 1947 for $15, darn. The building where the Crows were built still exists or a part of it. Atwood Mobile Products is now the company that resides there. Glad to hear that you are interested in the Crows. I would sure like to find one at a reasonable cost, which probably is not possible.

An article on the Crow-Elkhart company and its products.
