The “Automobilist” looks like he could be some kind of gangster himself, with that gaudy fur coat on.

Note, as an aside, that that poster continues the pattern of illustrations of early automobiles - they frequently drove on unpaved roads.

Henry Ford developed the means to mass-produce automobiles.

Then, some time later, governments started paving roads.

Government did not, as The Won asserts, start paving roads to make it possible for someone to start mass-producing automobiles.

Those coats were the cat’s pajamas at one time. I believe they were made of raccoon fur.

The dude in the fur coat is obviously some rich robber-baron / tycoon tea-party nut job on his way to the weekly KKK meeting and those two innocent men on the road look like hard-working union-members simply asking for help or, as Great Leader would say, their fair share.

Proving also that Ford didn’t need roads at all to be a successful manufacturer...the customers came to him and thereby demanded better access to Ford’s product.

Don’t bring a ‘murderous looking club’ to a gunfight ...

Even the thugs are well-dressed by today’s standards. Their hats are on straight, and their pants aren’t down around their knees.

I like these old adverts, especially the one with the cowboy using the Tommy Gun on the rustlers. Is there a collection of these somewhere?

The Won asserts, start paving roads to make it possible for someone to start mass-producing automobiles.

Its cargo cult thinking. The reality is that government should facilitate trade, not attempt to create it. (A clear need must exist)

Chunking little rifle - reminded me a little of SMLE meets Browning A-5 meets M-14.

I hear tell there used to be a country called the "United States of America" ... land of the free and home of the brave.

What happened to it?

Turnbull manufacturing does an amazing job on restoring 1875 and 1886 winchesters. Their color case hardening is amazing, but sometimes they go over the to with exotic minerals and finishes. That is a beautiful 1886. I wonder who refinished it?
