Title Reinhold Farm - Carl Oliver with Puddle Jumper
Place Medford, Wisconsin
Date c.
Description People could not afford to buy tractors so they converted cars to tractors.  Carl Oliver built the puddle jumper from a 1926 Buick. He used the puddle jumper prior to his marriage to Josephine and for some time after.  As reported by son, Richard, "they used it for many little jobs such as racking hay, making fence, and picking rock.  It was the second tractor as I remember.  It was faster."
