The novelty song “One Piece at a Time” by Johnny Cash was at #1 on the Country chart. The song tells of a man who works at General Motors in Detroit, Michigan, building Cadillacs and knowing that he will never be able to afford one. He and a co-worker decide to steal a Cadillac, using their assembly line jobs to obtain the parts via salami slicing. He takes the small parts home hidden in his large lunchbox; larger parts are smuggled out in his co-worker’s motor home.
