Mondays Finish the Story

Little did we know that Grandpa was a collector. After his arrest we learned Grandpa collected a lot more than old Ford’s.

He owned that little Sinclair  gas station just off Route 66 in Joplin, Missouri. His arrest warrant claimed that when he saw a Ford come in the station he desired he informed the owner his vehicle needed to have its brakes fixed. What he actually did, again according to the warrant, was to cut the break line.

Grandpa knew the car would not go far after that. He simply closed the station (not much traffic then) and follow the vehicle until it conked out. As he pulled up to the vehicle the occupants would think he had come to rescue them.

Over forty graves were later found about a mile back of the shed. Hubcaps were used as headstone markers. Grandpa is serving a life sentence at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Springfield.
