    Third time posted on here, but yes, very interesting footage.

    However, the man in the white car is most definitely not Colonel Tom, as some have suggested.

    I think it's Elvis' Uncle.

    I dream a world where man no other man
    will scorn. Where LOVE will bless the earth
    and peace its paths adorn...

    I haven't seen any pics of him earlier than the 1970s when he was thinner, so maybe it is him. Whoever it is, he has the look of a Presley.

    I can't believe anyone thought it was The Colonel ...

    Elvis gets his tractor stuck in the mud at Graceland. Col. Tom Parker stops at the gates to greet the kids. Home movie from the Davidson family collection.

    It doesn't matter what it says on YouTube.

    It's wrong ... that ain't The Colonel.

    It's not worth arguing about. But, I agree with you. It sure doesn't look like Parker.
    Nor can we believe everything said on YouTube.

    Everything is worth arguing about if it serves the purpose of getting to the truth and preventing more myths, rumours and exaggerations from entering Elvis folklore!

    The gates at Graceland were changed to the famous music gates some time in April 1957. They were originally supplied by Doors Inc of Memphis.

    They have been replaced at least two times since then.
