Text: A 1933 Chevrolet and a 1932 Dodge sedan are found and fully restored. They are placed in the parking lot of the Kansas City, Missouri, Union Station in precisely the places they occupied the morning of June 17, 1933 (with the help of UPI photographs and old police records this can be determined). Frank 'Jelly' Nash's body --whereever it now is-- is disinterred and buried beneath the 1933 Chevrolet. Mr. Nash, who had reputedly robbed with the Barkers, was being transferred from a train, the Missouri Pacific Flyer, to the Chevrolet, for transport to Leavenworth Penitentiary, when he was machine-gunned to death by unknown assailants. Also killed in or around the two cars in what was to become known as the 'Kansas City Massacre' were FBI agent Raymond Caffrey, police chief Otto Reed, detectives W.J. 'Red' Grooms anf Frank Hermanson. Plaster casts of still existing groups of bullet holes in the station walls can be made and sold inside the station, together with a pamphlet describing the event.
