Carriage of Pius IX...

These two photos were taken in the "Carriage Museum" of the Vatican Museums (an underground bunker with old papal carriages and autos).

didnt paul vi use a carriage during the energy crisis in the 70s?

Then by all means let him use it.
Subito !

During the 1974 fuel crisis, Paul VI did use a pony and trap, but most definitely not a carriage dating from the days of the Papal States !
