    You don't see too many of these floating around anymore.

    Today I went to meet a military convoy as they passed thru my neck of the woods. The "MVPA", Military vehicle preservation association, has a convoy running now from Aberdeen SD, to Ohio to the national meet. Those interested, could find the route and times at the mvpa web site. Sorry for so few pics, they were leaving before I thought, "first gear time " they call it. my buddy Jeff brought out his WW2 Ward LaFrance 10 ton wrecker just to make the amateurs jealous. 7000 made, most stayed in Europe after the war, about a dozen here in the states today he believes. Its complete with all the fixens it would have had while in service, torch set, snatch blocks, every tool and gadget it had in the war. The photo of the old guy off schedule from his quarterly hair cut and beard trim, and funny lookin shoe is me and my recently acquired 1952 M38 army jeep. I'll post that story soon to rekindle the jeep tales here in the antiquated section. IMG_0847.JPG IMG_0848.JPG IMG_0849.JPG IMG_0850.JPG

    20210809_121301_HDR.jpg This is a long term service truck from Texarkana. Previous owner put it into service in 1957. If you look you can see the name on the door. It's unreadable, but still pretty cool. It had a makeshift bed topper to hold air compressor hoses and tools. That part was so bad it was removed. The sombrero hubcaps were added. Truck is mechanically solid and will drive.

    Big Mike , I sprayed the body of a old army truck I bought with a 50/50 of boiled linseed oil and turpentine to help protect the paint . The hood numbers were unreadable before I applied the mix . 2 days later when I went to put a tarp over the cab and fenders I could read the numbers.

    1. a veteran died today

    If you like it don't cover with plastic, creates condensation and starts rusting first weather change.

    More than a pickup, this guy had some custom plates honoring the late Joe Diffie while he was still alive. Never noticed those before. Does this really pass as a pickup in Tennessee? :D

    One of the few old trucks that can rival the style of the Mack B series. I'd take one if they were handing them out.
