    They never produced a B Model as the first GAZ As were not produced until 1932. During the War The GAZ M and GAZ AAs were produced at the same time. The GAZ A variants were the main cargo Truck of the Red Army right up to the end of the war. They were also converted into Ambulances, Fire Engines, Armoured Cars, Rocket Launchers and Anti Aircraft platforms. The GAZ M variants were the main staff cars with a number of them being made into 4 X 4 s. The GAZ As were virtually identical to Model As but the GAZ M variants had an X crossmember Frame with a semi elliptic front and rear end similar to a 35 Chevrolet Standard. The heavy duty fenders and running boards were designed to withstand the appalling Russian roads.

  12. That sure looks like the place where I stopped to talk to a guy there years ago. If my memory serves me right, two brothers own all those and they would not sell anything because they were going to "fix them up" someday. The guy I talked to didn't mind talking to me and letting me look, there was everything from late 30s to rare 60s muscle cars there at the time. There were more cars back then and they were more haphazardly scattered around. When I talked to him I thought he was about 20 years older than me so he may no longer be with us anymore.

    Edit: Upon further research, that isn't the place I was thinking of. The place I was thinking of is in Georgia just south of Chattanooga on 2 lane hwy that goes through Rising Fawn Ga.

    I looked at these last fall. I didn’t share at the time because I thought I needed to buy them.

    I got some pretty good stuff, some 56 Olds flipper wheel covers, an original 57 Chevy 4 barrel oil bath air cleaner, a 61 Imperial "square" steering wheel a couple small porcelain signs, some original 60's AMT model cars and a bunch of misc. 40's and 50's hubcaps and wheel covers. Started in Alabama and made it about 1/2 way through Kentucky. We have now covered the whole 600+ mile route from Michigan/Ohio border to Gadsden, Alabama over the years.
     
  23. Found this 40 Mercury this spring. Tracked down the owner. Very nice older widowed lady. Said she had no use for it. Probably would go for scrap... Her asking price was very fair. I took it home. I will find a good home for it. I have too many projects now. .....
