As WW II wound down there were a lot of magazine ads by companies planning their post war strategy. The ads promised people they would have their pent up desire for consumer goods filled beyond their wildest dreams.

Willys' Jeep was born of the war effort and Willys decided they weren't going to pack up and fade away when the government stopped buying.

The perfect post-apocalyptic ride. Unfortunately, we had like thirty years of economic growth after this came out. Maybe its time to buy the tooling for that? ;)

That looks expensive, the trailer wheels steer, independent suspension, two trailer wheels drive, hydraulic everything. The only disadvantage would be slower hauling over the road, and you need a $150,000 tractor to pull it.

Locked bumpers. I've heard of those, but was it really that common?

Yes, even up into the 50s, although bumper guards helped some.

This shovel in Golden New Mexico isn't like any I've seen before. It looks built in place, hanging off the side of that structure, and not mobile. It appears it's shoveling dirt into a hole on the far side, where a series of scoops on a conveyer carry it up to the second level, dumping the dirt into the revolving screen drum. The drum would dump larger pieces like rocks out the chute on the near end, and the fine stuff is going somewhere else, perhaps a smelter.
They must be bringing the dirt to the shovel with wagons, trucks, or railcars.

Conowingo Dam Turbine Hall in 1930, with 7 turbines generating 36 megawatts each, second only to Niagara falls.

Yeah, we've had these on before, but, I haven't seen a self-propelled one before:
