THE MODERN MULE

ABC
INTRODUCED TO COLOMBIA IN THE 1950S THE WILLY’S JEEP HAS BECOME AN ICONIC MACHINE. IN A LAND OF VERTIGINOUS HILLS, WHERE A WALK IN THE COUNTRY LEAVES YOU WEEPING FOR MERCY, THE WILLY’S IS A MUST HAVE TOOL FOR ANY FARMER WORTH HIS SALT. COFFEE FARMERS REGULARLY LOAD A TONNE OF BEANS IN THE BACK AND HEAD UP A TRACK THAT WOULD CAUSE A SHERMAN TANK TO SHED ITS TRACKS. AS A RURAL TAXI IT KNOWS NO EQUAL.
ABC
AS COLOMBIA’S WEALTH GROWS THERE ARE NOT SUFFICIENT WILLY’S TO GO ROUND. THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK IS THE JEEP WRANGLER.

WILL THE SIGNPOST BE ALL THAT’S LEFT OF THE MULE?
