    Latest Find: Half Track

    No not the surplus store track although I'm familiar with that one. This one was on a ranch outside Roswell. I should have been more specific I meant the area was famous not the specific ranch. Not sure how close it was to that ranch that had the alleged problem with the little green men, I...

    Latest Find: Half Track

    I'm sure there are still some parts of it lying around. My buddy could not get permission to pick thru his junk pile. As hard as it is to find this stuff it's usually even harder to make a deal. I have tried to buy stuff that later went to scrap for 1/10th of what I was offering.

    Thanks. Going thru it before we try and start it, was sitting many years. Probably will be selling it. It's so nice it's tempting to keep but I have too much other stuff I need to keep working on.

    My buddy really hit this one out of the park. It still has probably 90% of the factory grey paint on the motor. It's been on the same ranch since sold surplus in 1946.
