Mom's apron......"Aprons were a very necessary part of Mom's wardrobe as a farmer's wife. She had to be careful not to soil the few nice clothes she did have. So protecting her dresses (Mom never wore slacks; she considered them sinful) from stains and splashes was a priority."
When I was naming the mechanic in Interstate Juggernaut I wanted to pay homage to a couple of my favourite mechanic characters. Cooter from Dukes of Hazzard and Skeeter from Interstate '76. So I came up with Skooter. Turns out Skooter was the name of doll from the 60's and 70's. So this was the basis for the look of her character in Interstate Juggernaut.

The original 1963 cast of Petticoat Junction (from left): Patricia Woodell, Bea Benaderet, Linda Kaye Henning & Sharon Tate. Filmways director Martin Ransohoff believed that Sharon Tate lacked confidence and the role was given to Jeannine Riley. Ransohoff gave Tate small parts in Mister Ed and The Beverly Hillbillies to help her gain experience.
