Have a vague recollection of seeing this a while back, but still interesting. So, do we really know what 'potholes' mean??

Oil Field Dodge 1920

Talk about tough & well-made! -- (Dodge had also been a parts maker for Model T Fords).

So you went out and spent $40k - 70k 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 just bought a 1920's era 2 wheel drive Dodge sedan!

As this video demonstrates, our roads have come a long way in 94+ years. One must wonder if many of our 4 wheel drive and ATVs could do as well as this old Dodge sedan did.

This is amazing old footage!

I have a '25 Dodge Sedan like that.
With something like an 18:1 first gear ratio believe it.
If the film was slowed to REAL real time it would be apparent.
I don't know HOW many times I've watched that....... :-O

It reminds me of a Timex watch commercial, Don.
