Recently I discovered the following photos at the Ocracoke Preservation Society museum. They document visitors bringing their car to Ocracoke in the 1930s.

The people in the photos have not been identified, but they surely were resourceful. Not only were there no ferries to Ocracoke in the 1930s, but there were also no paved roads on the island. As you can imagine, only adventurous folks came to Ocracoke back then.
Our current Ocracoke Newsletter is a 1938 article about Capt. Gary Bragg, waterfowl hunting, and wooden decoy carving. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news112116.htm.
