Dianne Olds Rossi and Rex Rossi with their plane, the "Flying Horsemen."

From Dianne Olds Rossi:

Rex was raised by the famous movie star Tom Mix. This is the original Cord car that Tom Mix was killed in. Apparently when the car crashed his guns which were in the back hit him in back of his head. The car was in L.A. and was being restored when we found it. The owner had Rex come down and make sure the color was the same. Rex said it was an eerie feeling sitting behind the wheel again as he did as a kid. Rex pointed out to the owner that the indentation in the floor board was put there so that Tom didn't have to remove his spurs when driving. The car last we heard was sold to the car museum in Las Vegas but I think has changed hands again. This picture was taken at the Burbank Equestrian Center where Rex was interviewed on TV about the car and Tom Mix

Stunt Rider .Meet Rex Rossi, Hollywood Stunt Man And Rodeo Star .

Watch closely at :35 as actor Lance Henriksen who place the part of Ace Hanlon in the 1995 movie The Quick and the Dead does a backward somersault out of the saddle, land's on one knee and comes up firing. Rex Rossi taught him that stunt.
