Nevin, Thank you so much for posting this link. It is incredible. Marvelous old film for anyone but what a treat for a Maxwell 25 owner to see. I'm sure a Ford would have done just as well. Too bad more Maxwells did not survive.

Thanks again

Rich

The guy should have been thrown in prison. Did you see all the beautiful plant life and virgin soil he disturbed? Shocking!

What amazed me about this car was the ability of the leather cone clutch, wood spoke wheels and the radiator to take such abuse. Now I understand why all the rope in front of the radiator, it keeps the trees out of the core!

Wow, and today we have a dislike for speed bumps! Humph!

He maybe only blew a tire and otherwise didn't break anything but you can bet that Max was not well after that run.
The fact that the front wheels survived those incredible looking side loads should tell us the car was going much slower than the film indicates.
I assume the passenger did a lot of walking ahead and checking out the terrain.
