Ford engineer helps Michigan girl be Cruella de Vil for Halloween

NOEL KING, HOST:

So in stepped a family friend, who is also an engineer with Ford. He built her a tiny car modeled on de Vil's distinctive Panther. For Halloweens past, he's made her Cinderella's carriage and Amelia Earhart's plane.
