Hot rod buggy…

One for the weekend–not your typical Amish buggy.  I don’t know the story behind this machine, I just want to know how many horses we’re talking.

From the LCBC car show in Lancaster County, 2010:

      It reminds of the sign in an antique car supply, restore place where my brother and I went for a part they had for his Model A roadster: The only difference between the men and the boys are the price of their toys.

      Im really just hurt because Erik is now posting pictures of some really cool cars. Infact that image looks like one of my own. Well its back to reading “motor trend” for me, it relaxes me what can i say folks.Now you know why i could never become Amish, theres no way im giving up my Mustang.

      Richard, you have a fast car with that Mustang of yours,,,, go ahead, put a banner on it and then race out here to Illinois so I can pinch you, LOL. Yes, I mentioned your blog, I thought you would get a kick out of that, hahaha.

      That is a ride!
      I remember that in the 1990s I saw a TV report on Amish/Mennonite vehicles, and mostly there was a company (for some reason I seem to remember it being a car dealership) selling buggies with engines instead of horses. The typical looking buggy, but from what I recall no hitching parts for the animal horse power.

      If that thing has a coffee cup holder someones running out to the bank on monday to get a car loan, but only after i promote my blog first,lol. Richard from Lebanon county’s Amish community.

      Sort of a different twise, but a year or so ago I saw an article about an artist (in Brooklyn, NY … I think) that was hacking a Hummer in half and was putting it back together as a horse drawn vehicle. Takes all kinds I guess …

      Amish Outcast Hot Rod Model

      This is very similar to this modified AMT model car kit:

    16. Richard I hope I didn’t steal your thunder on the hot rod buggy 🙂

      I am not officially a “car guy”–I don’t care so much about power as the road I’m on, I love to drive back country byways and the vehicle matters not so much as long as it has a coffee cup holder as you say.

      But, I couldn’t pass this one up. I wonder if it will be back again this year, I believe the 2011 edition is next month. Shrewsbury Market, which is a PA Dutch market in York County, does a car show once a month (it’s usually their biggest day), I’d actually be surprised if this bad boy hadn’t made it down there.

      Unfortunately although I’ve been to Shrews many times I haven’t caught the car night, but hope to this summer.

      Since i moved to the area late last year Erik, im still exploring in a way. Car shows are starting to pop-up now that the weather is much nicer. Infact a local Ford dealer is having a short car show of sorts this wednesday, from 9am -10.30 am. All these cars would be made before 1916, so if i can find the time i might drop by in the morning and take some pictures. Richard from Lebanon county’s Amish community.

      buggy reversal

      Now all we need to see is a Amish “buggy” with the body of a 1933 Ford bolted in place of the cab! 🙂
