I wouldn't make it to the deer stand on those old tractor roads without 4WD after a good rain.

Also consider the weight. Curb weight of a Ford Model A was 2,200 lbs.

So that's what rednecks drove back in the day. I always wondered about that.

Ran into a guy yesterday who is selling one of these Subaru Sambar 4X4 micro trucks. A buddy of mine had one when we were in school, that little thing could go freaking anywhere and if it got stuck a few strong guys could just about pick it up and walk it out on foot if needed. I am seriously considering it. It gets 40+ MPG too! Only problem is I don't know if I can fit in it.

That's what my dad learned to drive in. He was born in 1913.
