Mix became a star of Hollywood’s silent-movie era, and he owned his own circus. In 1937, he bought a Cord 812 (the color was called “cigarette cream”) and turned it into an embodiment of his persona. It had a gun holster, a siren, and flags on the bumper with his circus logo. Even the gas pedal was branded “TM,” and specially fitted for his boot. In 1940, he crashed the car and died.
