Street Use

Utility Vehicle

Bob Travis posted this picture on his Flickr site. He says it is a presumably still running utility vehicle used by an organic farmer to haul stuff on his one-man farm.

  • There are maybe hundreds of these critters in northern New England – I’ve heard them called timberdoodles and woods bugs. They live in the space where wrench twisting and folk art meet to share a cold one after a day in the puckerbrush.

    Timberdoodle is a cool name, Dr.Hypercube; I was hoping a quick google would turn up some more examples, but it didn’t. Niether did wood bug. Maybe its a really local lingo.

  • Try looking for “Doodlebug Tractor”-that’s the root name of these tractors-you’ll find lots of stuff. They were built from old cars during the War Years when things were a bit more lean.
