Ratcliff Ridge Cloud Scrapers And The Ultimate Tom Mix Cord Ride

 February 2, 2024

   Rained on and off most of last night and today. Big storm clouds moved across the sky in the late afternoon.

Let's Go For A Ride!
   I wore the biggest Tom Mix hat I have to interview the man who refurbished the 1937 Cord 812 Supercharged Phaeton Cord, The King of The Cowboys was driving when he was killed. In addition to great stories about the car, at the end of the interview Bob White said, "You ready to go for a ride?" And Boy Howdy, that is exactly what we did. It was, as they say, a hoot-and-a-half!

   When it comes to my current Tom Mix obsession, here's what a friend had to say about it:

"We're all speeding towards a dry wash somewhere, it's the time between that matters. Tom Mix created the life he wanted too, and his tragic end was an exclamation point to an adventurous life. I imagine as he floated away, he said with a grin…well, I never saw that comin'."
