I think they usually pulled them with oxen. Quite a few of the car manufacturers stated out with carriages. If you're ever in NW Indiana, don't miss the Auburn, Cord, Dusenberg Museum. Lots of history, beauty and mechanical genius to see. I have
not been to the Sudebaker Museum at South Bend but will be there in the next year or so. For you old hotrodders, remember when they used to put a Cadillac engine in a Studebaker body.? Studellacs , hot rod magazine.
