Who would have thought there would be so many different buggy variations? The buggy is a great example of how Amish districts vary in their Ordnung. Some allow storm windows, some don't. Some allow sliding doors, others don't. And did you know an Amish man might only own three buggies at most during his life time?

Very interesting. I didn't read this one word for word, but read several parts. Interesting to read how their buggies are different from one community to another.
