Here are a couple of videos that John took at Cedar Rapids. We found it funny that these are not vehicles you necessarily see driving around every day...or every month...:)

I can safely say that few of us has seen a man pulling someone in a buggy or a automobile chassis driven by in our neighborhood lately.

The problem with those chassis is...there's no place to keep the judging form.[:o)]

Related to Oscar Meyer...
Unfortunately, he passed away last week.
They had two of the (newer) Weinermobiles, and one of them tried to turn around in a private driveway.
Somehow they went forward instead of reverse and hit the house with the giant weiner.

Hit it hard enough to jam the weiner into the side of the house where they could not remove it because it knocked the house off of it's foundation...
Here are the links:

(PS: The original Oscar Meyer weinermobile was on a Studebaker chassis..)

Nice shots John! Thanks a lot for posting them Tracy!:D Was there some kind of a drive-round going on, or were the exhibitors still setting up/arriving?

That fellow is hauling his sweetie around with a Jump-Seat-Trap, not a Buggy. It actually looks like a Laughlin (Canadian) carriage. I've seen several and driven one for a while. A really nice vehicle that I later wished to have kept. The compartment behind the driver's seat folds up to be a (rear-facing) back seat. Studebaker did indeed produce several types of 'Traps', however, they were usually of a different type than this. However, I could be wrong... After all, the company was the largest manufacturing facility of it's time.;)
