    A loan for $33.50. For a vehicle (albeit horsedrawn). My, how inflation has affected us!

    Hey, if anyone has one of these wagons, I'll gladly pay double the sticker price.

      It will take a bit more than that...

        Yeah, in those days the engine was purchased separately.

        How about this one:

          Yeah you could get one for speed (a horse) or one for torque (an Ox)

            LOL, or to put it another way: 'Yeah you could get one for speed (a horse, ie: high-test) or one for torque (an Ox, ie: diesel)'.

            LOL, one of the reasons they used oxen was because the bloody things could just about live on sand and rocks! Hence, if one wasn't in a crashing hurry and/or was going into an area where proper fodder was scarce and/or was dealing with a very heavy load, well then oxen was the motive power. Not speedy, but torque to the max. Yup, the early semi and tractor. Still in use in many parts of the world.

              This one is for hauling (torque):



              This one is for speed:



              This one is the original crossover vehicle:



              This one is for the kids:



              And this one is for beating the bushes:



              Now if I only had a horse....

                Driving horse I have. Carriages I now have. Sadly, no Studebakers. C'mon out here to the other coast sometime Guido and bring a buggy. We'll go for a drive. They break down rather easily and will fit in amazingly small spaces. I know because I used to stow mine and a whole weekend's worth of supplies and equipment for myself and the horse in my camper. Takes a whole lot of blankets to do it though.
