Why am I not surprised at how few cars from that era survived! I cringed through the whole thing. I will say that in my younger days I took a little Dodge Omni places the other kids wouldn't take their 4x4 trucks. Never did get it stuck but did have to be pretty creative with explaining all the scratches from the brush.

Many were scrapped in the war effort.

Dodge made the real first truck. That's one thing ford could not pull off. Dodge had something for did not and that is the ability to not get stuck. Even my grandpa said in the 1920s they had to put the car away a old t model is what they had first then an a model in the winter Cuz it could not handel the mud and rain. They went to horse and buggy. He told me they could not afford a Dodge but where not able to get stuck.

Seems to give some cred to the theory that ground clearance and narrow tires will help get you through.

I've done everything but the roll over thing in my 85 Toyota shortbed 4x4... I sure would enjoy trashing about in one of those old rides though. What a blast!

Big skinny tyres Rande, that's the answer. It's fair to say the local population of the Falkland Islands are experts in off roading, mainly out of necessity with many of them still favouring the early models of Land Rovers. I've seen them drive them in places that you wouldn't consider possible. They do tend to know their land well though which must help.

When I got back from the University of Vietnam in '70 I bought a '58 land Rover LWB and went places my buddies Jeep CJ never could go but not as much as that Dodge did back then Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
