Henry Ford Snow Tractor
« on: February 18, 2010, 07:15:49 PM »

This is a rare video of an invention that never went very far. 
Wait until you see the automobile version it is all on here.
1926 Snow Tractor. Talk about ingenuity!
This is a 1926 silent film (on video) of a tractor-snow-machine invented by Henry Ford, shown here driving it.
Watch the whole thing. Note the "hat."

I want one! Even though I'm not in snow country. I bet with the right floats I could take that thing flats fishin'!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907
