This old motor from over 90 years ago, shows modern 4 wheel drive cars how to travel in mud and bad roads in an oil field... :hat3:

They were made for that, though. Thankfully, what with the small bits of road in the potholes, here, our Jeep makes them fairly easy going, :)

I also think that those skinny tyres used back then also helped. Not for comfort though, but then the suspension back then wasn't too brilliant either.... ;D

Our wedding car was built in the 20's and we were given champers when travelling up to Laugharne Castle for photos. Didn't drink the champers, more wore it.

I believe they had a lot of torque, back then. Good to have, but it tended to cause things to shear. Drive shafts and the like.

Yep a bit of ancient engineering back then in the early days of motoring, but for an old motor it coped pretty well in those conditions, but not quite the comfort of say a Range Rover.....:)

I fear my little Skoda would give it a hearty try, and then just get stuck in the deepest mud and give up.... :blush:
