Many of us today enjoy going out off the road and bouncing through the landscape. Our favorite days are the days after a hard rainfall because we know there will be mud along our favorite dirt track or out in our favorite pasture. Some four-wheel drive ventures, however, are for work. Even today, getting to the cattle on the ranch, setting up the latest drill site, laying foundations for a new home, and a lot of other endeavors involve digging through the muck in your truck or sport utility.
Yet with all of our modern technology and four-wheel drive awesomeness, we seem to have nothing on what they did back in the day. This vintage video shows a 1920s Dodge Brothers sedan digging through the muck at an oil field site. Watch and learn.
