Your trip to things adventurous is what the Passion Play is to Religion.

Only you could make this journey. Make it with a Ford.

My best wishes for success.

Your motion picture is a boost for good roads.

If you take Doug, you will have to build a little seat and take me!

You are original, my friends, the Wanderwells. I admire you!

I hope you always Wander-well.

Vojey moi a la France.

I would like to go with you, it’s the Life!


Captain Wanderwell, being fond of the Ford, would take the ford chassis and redesign the body. Making the Speedster Tail Section. The wheels were to be changed to tractor style raising the ground clearance and to be able to have the rubber tires removed thus allowing the auto’s to run on the railroad tracks.

But I was to remember how the confines of a car, its reassuring purr and motion breeds an extraordinary sense of isolation, intimacy… privacy.
