The Rattle in the Teraplane

Marash Girl recently expressed a concern over a squeaking in the left rear tire of her 10 year old Volvo, at which point Marash Boy recalled that as a young man, Marash Girl's father Peter used to drive a Teraplane. Peter, who always loved to regale his entourage with stories, often spoke of his Teraplane and how, when he would take a girl out for a ride in the car, she would complain: "Peter, there's a rattle in the back."  Peter, always quick to answer, would reply, "Do you want me to take it out so that you can play with it?"

N.B. The Terraplane was a car built by the Hudson Motor Car Company between 1932 and 1938.  Originally known as the Essex-Terraplane, the car became known as the Terraplane in 1934.  Marash Girl thanks Wikipedia for this information.
