      The photo of the Trucktrain makes me reflect on the incredibly rapid development, evolution and growth of the transportation infrastructure in our country during the first half of the 20th century. From rail lines and dirt paths to integrated, sophisticated blendings of rail with high-speed/high-capacity truck transport in just a few short years is really remarkable.
      Do you enjoy old cars and long-winded stories about them? If your answer is "yes", then you might enjoy my blogpage. Try it here: http://vwlarry.blogspot.com . Leave a comment, too; I love feedback! Thanx for reading.

      Indeed. It's something we take for granted now, but 100 years ago, there weren't very many bridges, either.

      Barry... don't know much about the flat bed up above.

      interesting though... looks on the ragged edge of stability

      uh.... girls with guns have been around for a while also.





      These Northwestern University girls brave zero weather to go through rifle drill on the campus in Evanston, Illinois on Jan. 11, 1942.
      and an early electric that was an oddity

      You might be needing a chiropractor after driving some of these roads.

      Holman-Moody-modified V-8 Ford Falcons used in European rallies in the mid-1960s.




      turns out that the little Falcon would make quite a name for itself at the famous Rally Monte Carlo. One of the drivers that Ford selected to pilot the Falcons was Bosse Ljungfeld, a Swedish driver known for his rallying skill. Although he would later be pushed back in the standings due to penalties, Ljungeld won all six of the timed stages at this event.





      It must have been quite a challenge navigating one of these cars through the extremely tight corners. Especially considering the tire technology of the day.

      One of these would be awesome to convert into a tour bus type deal and travel cross country in.
