An Oil Field Dodge Brothers Takes You on a Thrilling Ride

During the oil boom in the early days of the last century, many of the roads in Texas were a bit on the primitive side, to put it mildly. Photos we have seen from that era, like the 1917 image of a Reo light truck seen below (via Clive Baker), show roads that are just a sea of mud. Enjoy the short film (above) where a Dodge Brothers sedan takes a wild ride through the Texas back country in the 1920′s. Many more Dodge Brothers photos (scroll down) and more information can be found here on The Old Motor.
