Cars in the Old West? I thought they rode horses!

I spose it depends on how you define the Old West though …

The Wild Bunch springs to mind.

Cars in the Old West?

Sure, why not? Do you think the horses all disappeared in 1899?

"Old West" is a fairly indefinite term. How do YOU define when it ended?

BTW, Pancho Villa died riding in one of these:

watch "Big Jake". Cars and horses and even a dirt bike! The horses win.

Presumably when it ceased being "Old"!!

You did of course notice the exclamation mark at the end of my comment?

And that happens progressively over time, I take it? Just trying to follow the logic here.

There was a TV series in 1971, called Bearcats!

It only ran for one season and the network killed it. It was good.

Storyline: Mercenaries Johnny Reach and Hank Brackett cruise the American Southwest in 1914 in their Stutz Bearcat in search of action and adventure. They often take dangerous assignments for pay; their fee is usually a blank check, and after the mission, they just fill in whatever amount they think the job was worth.

Cf. Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op story "Corkscrew" -- which has one of the finest opening paragraphs in any short story ever.

I guess so …

(You noticed the exclamation marks too, I hope?)

Ummm…. OK

(You noticed the exclamation marks too, I hope?)

I did. Very much so, in fact. But I wasn't too clear on how the added emphasis changed the fundamentals of your argument, exactly.

Shall I pull the other one? Has it got bells on?

It's a nifty old car. Oughtta go well with Mexican Revolution games. Thanks, Tango.

According to certain essays on pulp fiction writing and game design, some areas in the American west were still considered to be the "wild west" up to the 1920s…

I wrote a blurb on this on my blog:

Long story short, there are some good "Westerns" that are set late enough to include the Model T.
