    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        Interesting combination of parts. The whole package looks like a truck that can still earn its keep.

          You know, modern trucks can look "mean" all they want, but let's see how they look in more than a half century, when their paper-thin sheet metal has completely eroded and their cheap aluminum motors are shot. Amusingly enough, this truck might still be around to stand as a silent reminder of quality workmanship.

                Wouldnt bet on many of the new trucks being around as long as a half century!

                  I have a similar picture from that same era, but there is a woman riding the horse.

                      There was a movie 'Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken' about the diving horses. PETA was not a fan.

                        Doesn't PETA stand for People Eating Tasty Animals?

                          This thread took a very strange turn since I last checked in. At least the horse wasn't pulling a Studebaker wagon.....
