Most people think "Well, a wagon is a
wagon." Sure! That's logic. It
might be a wagon for a year but the
next year it's a pile of junk. So there

outlines. . Honestly now, if you want
ed to buy a wagon tomorrow, what
would influence you most in your se

how to build a wagon to see that all
the good points are there?. .Or that all
the bad ones are not? Well neither
do we... We have to depend on the
people we buy wagons of to give us
our money's worth. . . So do you. And

thing breaks, who do you look to for

wagon of, that's who!
We've sold enough different kinds of
wagons to know what's what, and we
want to sell you the best, because it's
the cheapest for us in the long run.
We always have and always will make
