Milton Jones was a hobbiest / local race car driver, mechanic along with his son & my late grandfather, Milton Ronald Jones, of Los Altos, Ca that moved from Akron, Oh to become an Airline Pilot for American Airlines.  His father, did own a paint & body shop in addition to a string of food & burger establishments in the area.  His profession and / or relative affluence as suggested herein was not related to illegal activities during prohibition era.  

 

Many years ago I had an opportunity to purchase the car @ the Blackhawk Car auction at Pebble Beach and regrettably  did not, as encouraged by my past employer/partner and car collector, John Mozart.  Other than hearing my grandfather’s racing memories, I did not know the car existed nor have time to thoroughly research the car.  In retrospect I wish I had purchased the car.  My grandfather worked on the car with his father @ 17 years old and attended the Indianapolis race with his father.

 

My mother passed very early and after she did, our communication with her brother (Milton’s great grandson) sadly & gradually deteriorated.  His son may have in possession photos or other items that may help you & I’m happy to provide his name & his last known contact information.  Please email me privately for that.

 

Best wishes.

Christian
