    Location #10, is near the very beginning of the movie when the woman was talking about “bone structure”. She then referenced the bone structure of the Cadillac in the picture. The 1936 Cadillac belonged to my dad, Don Butcher of Hays.
    The location was on the first block west of Main Street on 10th in Hays where steps take you from the sidewalk to the street.
    At the time, Schlegals Hobby Shop & a doctors office was located in that block.

      Wlmer Schoenberger of Hays ks, while working at Gagelman Ford body shop in Hays , Painted the 36 cadillac for Don Butcher and it may of been for getting ready for the movie.

    Yes, I do know where those unknown locations are. In fact I’ve found about fifty locations for Paper Moon. The only significant ones I have not found are the ones where 1. Chased by the deputies, Moses and Addie are stopped by a tractor pulling an impliment and Moses drives up on an embankment to pass. 2. In the next shot Moses drives around a turn, skids to a stop, reverses and drives up a narrow lane cut through a treed embankment. (Then the movie goes on to the wrestling/car swap scenes).
    I’d like to find either of these car chase scenes. Either would lead to the other.
