The Dodge Business Car (1920) is one more automobile blog that was meant for "Old Time Stereoviews." I hate to waste it, and automobile enthusiasts do visit the automobile advertisements posted here, so forgive me for being way off subject. I feel a bit like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Zeke volunteered to make an appearance at the end of this today!
From the December 1920 issue of the “Farm Journal” comes this advertisement for the Dodge Business Car. I scanned the page in black and white to remove the very dark brown discoloration and deterioration of the paper. If I handle it again, I believe it will turn to dust! I must preserve it for posterity today. I also copied the text from the page, below the advertisement for translation purposes, and to make it easier to read. Notice the tarpaulin or awning rolled up on the side by the roof.
"During the war, the shell-torn roads of France advertised to the world for
all time the wonderful strength and powers of resistance in Dodge Brothers
The Business Car embodies this same splendid sturdiness and ability to
stand up under continued hard use, on and about the farm, and to and from
It has a universal good name for infrequency of repair and unusually low
cost of operation.
Every inquiry you make will convince you that it is ideal for farm use in
point of size, weight, capacity, low cost of haulage and long life."

Zeke never misses an opportunity to show off. Here he is rolling around on the bed on his favorite snugly blanket. He is the only male, a Maine Coon, and the youngest at 3
years old. He does not like riding in cars, and he indicated to me, that he does not think he would like riding in a truck either. If the truck pictured above were screened in the back and front as well, it would make a very large cat carrier!
