    It's a museum now, but looks pretty much the same.

    The Union Pacific and (separate) Rio Grande stations in Salt Lake City are well preserved classics as well. Lot's of old pics about of those, especially the Rio Grande station.

    Found these five shots from May, 1962 in an antique store in the mid ninties In Seligman, AZ. I don't have any information as to what show they were taken at. Notice the McNutt coupe in the bottom picture.

    The remaining shots were either found in antique stores or bought off the internet.

    Eddie Rickenbacker with a group of unidentified men at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. They are standing by a Pierce Arrow Silver Arrow V-12. The man holding the checkered flag is probably Seth Klein, the official starter at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for many years.

    Eddie Rickenbacker and the Prest-O-Lite Race Team. Rickenbacker is in the number 12 Maxwell with an unidentified riding mechanic. The driver in the number 3 Maxwell may be Pete Henderson. Also pictured is the Prest-O-Lite Official Race Truck, a Kelly Springfield. There is a poster in the background advertising D. W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation.

    Date: ca. 1916

    Do not forget the sensible decision of starting a turbine-powered car in such an environment........
