Solid tires? Mud roads? We can fix that.

This way fig_1_2.jpg or that way fig_1_1.jpg

and if it is still too soft, we can do this polerailtruck.jpg

Old trucks were so weak they could only handle one log at a time, sometimes.

About how I remember it... heck... I still use banks to load equipment!

Somewhere I have pictures for Model T and Model A tow trucks along with Packard tow truck...

Growing up it was the station wagon that always got the towing jobs...

Farmer says, "I got one of those new-fangled loaders. I really like it. No one else in the county has a tractor loader."

Does anyone know the model of the crawlers in Bruce's first photo. I've also often wondered about the model of the crawlers in the movie, "The Gapes of Wrath" , they're used to push down the migrants houses and are simply called the "Cats".

Post your photos of "Trailers and Transportation" from "The good old days."
