Man behind landmark downtown Jackson "Little Red Corvette" dies

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Former Jackson businessman Horace Slay has died at age 89.

The life-long car dealer's "Little Red Corvette" on top of a pole on South State Street has become a capital city landmark.

It has greeted motorists going in and out of downtown Jackson since the 1960's.
