I am always amazed at how these early automobiles got around before there were paved roads
and even gravel pathways. They had skinny tires and about 20 or 30 horsepower and seemed to get around where you would least expect it.





Oil field 1920 Dodge car… they don't make'em like they used to!

(Keep your eyes on the driver bouncing around)

So you spent $40k - 60k on a new 4-wheel drive truck and put big off-road tires on it so you could get to work out in the oilfields.

You could have bought a 1920's era Dodge!

As this video demonstrates, our roads have come a long way in 95 years. One must wonder if many of our 4 wheel drive and ATV's could do as well as this old Dodge sedan did.

This is amazing old footage!

I can just imagine some of my friends who are into "mudding" their modern 4x4s going "HOLY (expletive)!!!!!!" I guarantee that a lot of them would need to break out the winch cable to get them out of some of the soup that thing is chugging right through.
