A Car Classic.
We have an Classic Car Club in our neighborhood. It's so much fun to see these cars. Owners drive them in parades and keep them in mint condition.
Here's a truck a neighbor puts in his yard at Christmas. Isn't it a delight?
These cars and trucks came at the right time in history. Farmers found they could get produce to the markets faster in trucks than by horse and buggy. Taking a Sunday drive was a big event to look forward to as the week went by. Women weren't thought strong enough or smart enough to drive a Model T. The crank could give quite a kick. Henry Ford's early invention cost about $300.00.
Good inventions came in the early 1900's.
However, so did natural disasters.
Like the Dust Bowl.
The Great Depression.
