Letters to the Editor

If you’re interested in wagons of the old West, check out this
new website: www.wheelsthatwonthewest.com

Created by enthusiast David Sneed (an occasional contributor to
Farm Collector), the site is a fascinating storehouse of
information, history, data, images and more on farm, freight,
ranch, coach, express and military vehicles of the old West. The
site delves into transportation-related information from the 1800s,
vintage vehicle company overviews, and behind-the-scenes looks at
the trade.

“There’s always been a great deal of attention given to the
native American Indians, cowboys, miners, homesteaders and even the
harsh terrain encountered in the old West – and justifiably so,”
Sneed notes. “But, it’s amazing that so little consideration has
been given to the industry that literally drove the western
expansion of our country.”

The Wheels That Won The West archives draw from a rare
collection of vintage literature, photographs, illustrations, books
and more than a decade of concentrated research. Through the
website, western vehicle fans now have a place to congregate, share
information and discover yet another level of excitement in
America’s Western history.
