A foreigner given to rash generalizations would quickly conclude upon reading this year's sales and personal property cases that the three most flourishing and litigation-producing institutions in Tennessee are the automobile, the General Motors Acceptance Corporation and bootlegging. The automobile is responsible for all five of the cases covered in this survey; in four of the five the General Motors Acceptance Corporation is the defendant; and two of the five grow out of bootlegging activities.
