I'm told that is Henry Ford the inventor of the machine.

I saw the tracks for one of those machines somewhere in my travels and never could figure out what they were for. The best I could come up with was water travel. Snow. Amazing.

The driver of the snow tractor is supposedly Henry Ford himself.

I get around in the snow about as well as that poor horse.

Ureka it's 53 today!!

I would guess it was unlikley Henry Ford was driving, considering the car was a Chevy. But it may have been a composite story and the Fordson part was really Henry.

But otherwise it seemed like one heck of an idea. I wonder what the drive cylinders were made of considering the day and age.
