When McDonald's grabbed me and held me down and attempted to make me eat a Big Mac, I barely escaped. I was not so fortunate with Burger King and Budweiser. They ganged up on me and won the battle.

What's the pink Wire? coming from the engine to the driver?
Bluebird as discussed in here: https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/bonneville-today-500-mph.1124118/
Pink wire looks to be a bead rolled into the body...But I have been wrong before.
I see that Marylin's Ford Thunderbird is up for auction this month.
Not saved up enough to bid, though.
I agree, it goes to the front of the car too, not a wire.
Looks like Earl Gilmore on the left with famed air racer Roscoe Turner on the right. Turner set many records flying with lion cub named Gilmore as his "co-pilot". After the lion grew too big he lived out the rest of his days on a California ranch I believe. Roscoe had Gilmore mounted and displayed in his Indianapolis home. Today the lion is store somewhere in the National Air & Space Museum but hasn't been on display for many years.
Hayes Engineering Works is still in existence as a heritage site. Oturehua is in Central Otago in the South Island of New Zealand. The business is still operating, but in Invercargill. The shop has a large collection of cars and bikes on display, including Burt Munro's Indian streamliner. https://www.ehayes.co.nz/Our-Company/history-__I.301 According to the caption on the photo above which can be seen on the history page on the website, the vehicle is a 1910 Buick, and is on display in the shop today. I think it is actually a bit later than 1910.
Not Kerrville... little Austin, big guy.
