This photo was taken to commemorate a trip made from Buffalo to NYC. Max lost his legs in an accident on the D. L. & W Railroad in 1890. At the time of this photo, Carlo had been pulling this cart for five years.
The Chrysler Saratoga was custom built in 1947 at a cost of $25,000. Sporting two larger-than-life Zippo® lighters with neon flames, the car was in parades and special events across the U.S. during 1948 and 1949.
