AL CAPONE'S CAR
In the mid 1960's, Paul Eakins bought a car that was thought to be Al Capone's. Eakins restored the car to new condition and toured with it around the country along with his band organs and other mechanical musical instruments. In 1975, Red "Morris" Rudensky was brought to Sikeston to verify the car was indeed Al Capone's. Red Rudensky was one of Capone's friends from the early days and he was also Capone's cell mate in Atlanta. Here are some pictures of the car and of Red Rudensky. Paul Eakins taped an intveriew with Red Rudensky about the authenticity of the car and we are offering it here. Red tells of stories of his time driving the 1930 v-16 Cadillac. More pictures and information coming soon.
