larryhagedon - 2013-09-04 6:00 PM Robert, (also known as Roy), Bennett, is deceased. His widow Alice is listed in the phone book as still living at the old house at 221 N Sheridan Ave, Ottumwa, 641-682-4105. Roy Bennett Jr is listed at 1401 N Wapello, Ottumwa, 641-814-4434. Gotta be pics somewhere of both Robert and Alice, and myself and JoElla getting in the car at the church after our wedding ceremonies. Gotta be pics of the car all decorated up with old shoes and toilet paper. I have had that car over 125 MPH on the highway. Ah, OK,, I never verified that anniversary bit, Golden adventurer makes more sense.
Larry .... thank you very much for this info !! .. look like you have a lot of information of this car !, i hope you found some pictures !!  125 mph  on the highway .. !!   it was fun with Hemi Engine !! Larry you remember if engine had Dual Quad Carburetor in 1964-65 ?? look like removed from Schmitt Owner ...

Alice Bennett should be around 70 now.

I hope to find pics of the car decorated, I don't have any located yet.

I seem to vaguely recall dual quad carbs, but I cant say for sure. If Schmitt took them off, then no, as Schmitt seems to have owned the car before I had it.

When I found the engine it only had a single 4-barrel carb manifold. The guy that had the engine confirmed that is what was on the engine when he got it from the Batavia junkyard.
I will be calling Alice and Roy JR in a couple days after I am out of surgery.

That intersection in Ottumwa Iowa has 5 streets feeding into it and is known as the 5 Corners. The store was Lindberg Grocery, when the 57 was cruising those streets. Lindbergs was known as one of the few, or perhaps only, grocery store in town that would not sell beer. There were a number of customers that patronized them just because of that stand.

To the right (South), in the picture, there used to be a lumber yard. It burned down in about 1964, or around then.

When I was first married, we lived in an apartment several blocks from there. Later we bought a house on Burris Street, even closer.

Just got off the phone with Alice and she does not remember the car and stated that she did not get married until Jan 1967 and thought it might be her sister in-law also named Alice who also knows Larry and they all went to the same church. But I verified that the address on the title matched the address her husband lived at when they first met. Also the name on the title was that of her husbands and not her brother in law. So we have the right lady married to the guy on the title but he does not remember the car and the date of the marriage do not line up? I asked about old photos of the car before they were married and she does not remember having any and said that she never went on a honeymoon so it could not have been her with the car decorated up going on a honeymoon they were working and didn't have time. Unless her husband got married once before her and did not tell Alice? Things are not lining up? Granted memories get less solid when we get older! I left my phone number with her in case she thought of anything else or came across any information about the car.

it's getting interesting .. Alice was married to Roy Bennet and do not remember the car? .. that's strange  .. you can call the son  Roy
Bennet Jr ?

I might be seeing things, but the barn boards on the old photo appear to be vertical. The barn boards on the new photo are definitely horizontal.
Also, old photo barn roof looks metal. New photo barn roof is definitely wood shake shingle.

Alice is technically correct that they did not go on a honeymoon. In fact, when we left the church in the Desoto, they were not even really married. Robert had forgotten to get the marriage license soon enough, and it was not yet a legal document on the date of the wedding.

We got together in secret the next day so the minister could make it legal.

The minister made them promise to sleep in separate houses and beds that alleged wedding night.

When we left the church, we did indeed leave in the Desoto, with me driving. I remember I left too soon, before the folks that traditionally follow married couples from the church, honking their horns and making a racket, could get organized.

Looks like Alice and Robert got married after I bought the car from Robert, which is why her name is not on the title, nor does she remember it.

I am disappointed that no pictures have surfaced.

Keep looking for those pictures. we all still hope you can find some but in the mean time the personal memories of the history of the car are great!
Did you ever get pulled over for speeding in the car?

Lee, I just want to tell you that usually when someone refers to himself as 'a big guy' I just roll my eyes.....that usually means he is 6 feet tall and 195lbs. But you...you really are a big guy!

I went to a DR appointment a few weeks ago (I try to avoid them) for my knee surgery and they measured me (girl had to stand on a chair) For years I have been saying I am 6'6" She said I was dead on 6'7" I thought you were supposed to shrink when you got older? Comes in handy on occasion but gets in the way more often.

==================================================

Makes it hard to fit in those kiddy cars too !

I had the privilege of meeting Jack Rasmussen yesterday. USMC corporal that saw combat from
Guam to Iwo to Okinawa. Jack is looking great at 90 and what a fine example of the Greatest
Generation. Jack told me he was 5.5 inches taller when he was young !

I have heard you shrink when you get older, but half a foot ??? I was shocked !

If you make 180 years old, you just might fit in that Firemite.

Actually the Firemite is about 7 feet long and is one that I will be able to fit. I have to finish and sell a 1961 Tbird JR first but the Firemite will be built so I can drive it.

You're right, Raffy; Lee is a super-sized, super-nice guy!

For a brief moment at the NDC convention this past summer, I thought that we were undergoing a total eclipse of the sun.

But no...it was just Lee getting up from his lawn chair.

Sorry, but I was only able to snap this rather poor photo...

Found it in Pleasant hill Iowa. One of the towns we drove through when you were here.
Too bad I don't have a 57 any more, it would look great on it!

Raffaelle, you know that you're my hero! However, why can't I see the motor number on your block? Is it just the way the picture was taken? Here's a pic of mine, and the S26-A-2896 clearly shows in front of the lifter valley.

Gotta agree with ya there, Ed!

I have several heroes at this site, and Raffy is definitely one of them. Amazing determination, stamina, and talent!

Raffaele--
Mi scusi. Ho appena letto la tua storia per la prima volta. Complimenti per la vostra determinazione. Deve essere soddisfacente.

Congratulations on all your work for so many years on your DeSoto. In the 1970's I found a '57 Adventurer convertible buried under bushes near Richmond, Virginia. It was too much for me to work on and I did not have any money to have someone restore it for me. I sold the car to a collector who restored it, but I have regretted it all these years. I can't wait to see the finished product.---Fred.
