The Model T-Ford was the first mass produced car available to the public and was cost effective to produce and was very popular during the 1920's and 30's.
This would show how The Ewells have a car but cannot use it and either have no Tires or can't drive it and are saving the Tires from damage.
Chapter 2 pg 27 "The Cunninghams are country folks, farmers, and the crash hit them the hardest." The Crash is referring to the stock market crash on October 29, 1929. Most stocks were owned by country ranchers as a investment or a savings fund.
The Cunninghams had their investments in the stock market and when all that went out the roof they lost all their money and couldn't pay off the land they had just bought.
Its not just the Cunninghams either a lot of farmers had this problem.
This influences how the reader sees the Cunninghams because they didn't start their problem, they didn't get them selves into the situation. It makes use symp vise with them more.
