The Treaty Oak in Austin, Texas. Lost is shape and magnificent wingspan after a deliberate poisoning in 1989 by some lunatic who spent 9 years in prison for the crime. The tree was miraculously saved and is well over 500 years old . . .
Lyndon B. Johnson's convertible 1964 Lincoln Continental will be sold at auction on March 3. The white limo, with a V-8 430 cid (cubic-inch-displacement) that produces 320 horsepower, has a grand tan interior. Johnson was often seen driving it with the top down and wearing a ten-gallon hat at his 1,500-acre ranch in Stonewall, Texas in the Texas Hill Country. During Johnson's presidency, the ranch became known as the Texas White House.
