(Supposedly) Real Mob Story 1

There is a big mainline road that takes cars straight out of Chicago into ... the countryside. JT's grandfather owned a farm by the side of this road outside of the city limits. One day the old man was visited by a well dressed meaty guy.

"Me and my buddies want to rent your barn to park our cars occasionally," he said. "You'll get 10 bucks a month for your troubles." There was no other strings attached. Just parking a few cars in the barn.

Ten bucks a month was a lot of money in the 1930s. The old farmer accepted. For the next decade, his barn was frequented by many cars in Al Capone's fleet to avoid police surveillance.
