That hard rubber rear tire looks to be pretty much worn out! Dave

Interesting!
Was the top lowered to fit the windshield while folded? Then the driver must have been short - hard to lower the seat with the tank under it?

Twenty-five cents was a lot of money to most country folks in those days. I've got a feeling that a lot of folks went away feeling like suckers after taking a look at those mangy mutts. Is it even possible to cross a coyote with a dog? If it were, I assume it would be a sterile hybrid.

I dunno if it was sterile or not, but a guy I once knew had a pet he claimed was half dog and half wolf. I never verified his claim, but the animal sure played the part.

Yes, it is possible and there have been recent notes about that in our local paper. Wolf-dog cross are common in the west. Jack London wrote a novel "WOLF" about such an animal.

I used to live across the street from one in Toronto during the '70s. It would howl a lot and the neighbors were rather afraid of it.

Okay, I had to go to Wikipedia to study up on this. Dogs and Gray Wolfs are closely related and are both sub-species of the species: “Canis lupus.” Coyotes are close but not the same species. Coyotes are species: “Canis latrans.”

However, according to Wikipedia: “All species within the Canis genus, the wolf-like canids, are phylogenetically closely related with 78 chromosomes and can potentially interbreed.”

"phylogenetically"

There's a word I never thought I'd see on a T forum, (he said as he pretended he knew it in advance). ;O)

So, are all the products of phylogenetic reproduction sterile? We know that mules, being the offspring of a horse and a donkey, are. What about some of the other possibilities?

To remain on topic, can Ford and a Packard produce a Buick? If so, can two Buicks produced in this manner produce another Buick?
