    International K-8 trucks

    I was looking over at Olive Drab at some of the trucks used in early WWII and noticed the International K-8 cargo truck. Does anyone have any more info on military IHC K-series trucks (the description says the K-8 was "one of many...International...trucks.")? I have a '49 KBS-6 (2 and a half...

    M123 and M125 10-tons

    Can someone direct me to info on these beasts? I've only seen one M123 for sale (in my limited time here) - are they pretty rare? Value? Oshkosh has some of the newer heavy trucks (8, 14, 20 and 22.5 ton tractors), but none of the older ones, which look way better than the new. I'd love to learn...

    M37 "creating" legroom

    I'd really like to get a M37, but when I sat in one for the first time earlier this week, I had a terrible time operating the clutch pedal. I should note that I'm 6'7"... I could get my toe on the pedal, but sliding my foot up to press it was quite a chore because my knee was hitting the...

    Looking into getting a Mutt

    I got to sit behind the wheel of a Mutt today, and hey - I fit! I'm 6'7" and have been looking for a MV that will fit in my garage and that I'll fit in. While I'd love a Deuce or 5-ton, those will have to wait for a while, so I was thrilled to find the M151. So, advice?!?! I'd love something...

    G506 questions

    There's a G506 dumper about 4 hours from me that I'd be interested in picking up if I could get some answers. I haven't been able to look at it in person yet, but have been told that some of the metal is rough with some rust and dents. It is missing the hood and side shields. It doesn't run...

    Hello from northern Minnesota

    Hi. My wife works at the local VA Clinic as a LPN, and she chats with one of the guys there who's a gear-head and former Marine. Anyway, she suggested that I "get a hobby," and hang out with Billy to get myself a truck to fix up. Billy and I started chatting and I've always wanted a military...
