Jim Horton, a native of Amazonia, Mo., was a man of bright blue eyes and Pendleton shirts. In the early 1920s, the Ford Motor Company hired him to drive a Model T west from St. Joseph to Sacramento, retracing the route of the Pony Express. It was a publicity stunt and probably the only thing he ever did in his lifetime that landed his name in the newspaper, until his 1967 obituary appeared. As I understand it, Jim suffered a sunstroke while roofing his Missouri home a few years before he took on that assignment to drive cross-country.
