Always wondered why he stood up and let the bullets bounce off his chest, but when the crook threw his gun at him...... he ducked?
It does not seem likely. But without a note, who knows what is going through the mind of someone who commits suicide? Doing the act tends to make one assess the deceased was not thinking rationally in the first place.
Is that a Kellison?
For anyone wondering, this pic shows an area at the manufacturers test site (normally a hot test site) where samples of paint and other materials are laid out for sun exposure. The car just happened to be there, it wouldn't have been on an exposure test. Samples of the body material probably would have been, though, when in the prototype stage.
I've seen examples of these areas at Ford sites at Yucca and Wittmann.
Where is this at ?
I have a idea .....?
If this is in the Rocky Mountains in the 1960's that 1960 Mercury on the end could be our car.
On the way to Lake McBride

This is my mom and her 1956 Mercury Phaeton. She won it in a contest on the Ed Sullivan Show.
More great photos, Rootie. Thanks!
I don't recognize the driver in the Malloy rail job. I assume that's Ruttman in the 98 Jr. Was this photo taken at Carrell Speedway?
The second photo looks like Al Putnam's car at Indianapolis in 1946. And notice the concrete block walls. When the garages that burned to the ground in 1941 were replaced it was with concrete walls. I believe Putnam died in this same car later in the season at the Indiana State Fairgrounds becoming the only driver to ever perish there in a Championship car.
My info says it's Bill Vukovich in the 2 at Carrell circa 1950.
Rookie, do you or anyone know, were there any tie downs used or was the car hauled just as pictured?
