Bruce Carter & Martin in Odessa, Texas

Family & Friends

These pages were initially created to transfer photos from traditional scrapbooks to the internet in order to both preserve and make the pictures and history available to family and friends. It has become more extensive than I intended. However, I see it as a way to save the details before they slip away. Martin T

Theophilus' 1952 Plymouth - this car was used to deliver newspapers and magazines. On one occasion Martin (Buddy) and Lee McCullum were going out the Old Marathon highway. Normally you could tell where the dip was by watching the train signal beside the dip. On this occasion it was out. We flew in mid air for a few moments,Lee bit the cigar he was smoking in half and we landed on the far side high ended on a rock. Luckily we could rock the car back & forth and got traction.

A few years later it was parked in from of Martin's bedroom on Highway 118 across from Central school and a driver coming in from Fort Davis went to sleep and hit the 1952 Plymouth head-on, totaling his new Buick. The Plymouth looked unscathed.

Martin's personal DPS car while working as Sul Ross Officer.  Martin's family purchased used DPS cars for use in their extensive driving.  Here's a video of the DPS Motor Pool in 1967.  Originally the cars were bought using sealed bids and then DPS began using auctions.
