    Black buggy with red running gear?

    Some things never change.
  21. Hmmm.... so from the outsiders point of view, they´re a strange community with their own language and traditions and an arbitrary cut off date for their technology.

    Ringing any bells fellas...?:D:eek:

    Yeah, the Amish aren't that bad. But those Mennonites, you really gotta keep your eye on them...ha, just kidding. I got a ride, from an Amish man in a buggy, years ago. Car broke down, causin trouble, out in the boon docks. No celly back in the mid 90's, so I started walking. Guy was heading in the other direction, but insisted on giving me a lift into town. Never got sanctamonious with me and absolutely wouldn't take any money for it, just told me to have a nice day.
    What did I say about the "quirky odds and ends" you find.:eek::)

    Yeah, some guys complain about it being overdone, but I tell ya, the classic look never goes out of style. ;)

    Later, Kinky6 :cool:
  26. I would love to see Foose and the Overhauling Crew turned loose on an Amish buggy for week's thrash...:p

  27. ...and I've seen diesel-powered hale balers pulled by draft horses...let that one sink in for awhile.

    First thing I saw when I went up there was a Amish with a wagon going down the road full of 5 gallon gas cans. My first thought was, "wow he must use a lot of gas" then I thought "hey wait a minute"

    You had better be wearing your rain gear sitting that low behind that kind of horsepower. There is a reason those buggies ride so high.

    I've delivered logs to an Amish sawmill and they are a little different. They can't have electricity but they did have three big diesel engines powering the mill. They could have a phone but not on their property, They had a little old camper across the road on the neighbor's property. They had built steps over the fence to access it. The mill's bathroom was simply a piece of hollow wood sat on end. Strictly for #2, I had to go bad enough to use it one day. You were just out there in the open for God and all to see. So much for modesty.

    I got a ride in an Amish buggy on a church field trip back in the 60s. I was shocked to see the inside was upholstered in blue diamond tufted velour and a radio. I don't understand their religion but I do respect them quite a lot. I think he said that they could sow some wild oats until they got married and settled down but don't quote me on this.

    Witness is a favorite movie of mine.
