    Don,

    Great to see it up and running for now. To get started here is an interesting link that will show you the various types of vehicles. For the car guys you may recognize some of the terms and see where some of the early cars evolved from. Just click on the name to see the type.

    Appreciate your input Ricky, you're right about the spokes and all.
    After all these things were built by hand just a "tad" before my first Birthday and like Duesenbergs no 2 were exactly alike.
    Although someone might be working from a set of plans that doesn't mean that one guys spokes would be exactly the same from one day to next. They weren't cut by a 'puter on a state of the art CNC rig.
    One craftsman to the next each had their own way of doing things.
    An exact replica could be done of one particular wagon but to assume that every single wagon in a particular style would be dead nut the same from one to another is simply asinine.
