From the time he was just 12 years old and the only kid on the block wearing one of those sporty blue, college blazers, there was already an indication that there was something special and different about Ralph Lauren. And even as a 23-year-old tie salesman in New York City, Lauren already looked the part of a millionaire, although he was a long way from becoming one. Lauren would make his sales rounds wearing a custom-fit suit and driving a rare Morgan sports car, apparently offering a glimpse into a lifestyle that would someday define him. Every penny Lauren made as a struggling salesman went to clothes and cars, the two indulgences he still fancies today.

Ted Anderson spent the night of Oct. 15, 1986, crammed into a room with seven other cops in an out-of-the-way Virginia hotel. One officer spent the night in a bathtub and several lay on the floor. Anderson didn't sleep at all. Early the next morning, a Thursday, a caravan of about 100 police vehicles - including Anderson's - made its way up Interstate 81 into Martinsburg, where the largest drug bust in the town's history took place as most of the dealers were still sleeping.

Hagerstown auto dealerships, like many across the nation, are struggling to push gas-guzzling vehicles off the lot and make room for compact cars. Many dealerships are offering huge incentives to get rid of bigger vehicles, and many of them are running into the same problem - vehicle supply isn't meeting consumer demand. As of June, Ford's U.S. sales dropped by 27.9 percent, and General Motors' second-quarter sales declined 27 percent. Mike Reid, general sales manager of Hagerstown Ford, said his dealership is making next to no overall profit because truck and SUV sales have plummeted.
