    What have you done to your JEEP today

    Deet, things are looking good. I know the feeling when you have all the details taken care of, you can't wait to get it together. Coincidence, I also have an M38A1. Build date Dec. 1953. I'm getting the carburetor squared away at this time. Good Luck with yours.

    That's often the way it is, I can remember back years ago, the only Vodka you could get here in the States was Smirnoff Vodka. Part of Seagram's I think. Then after the Cold War ended folks would come back from Eastern Europe, Finland, or Russia and tell us how good the Vodka was over there...

    Largest Annual MV Gathering & Swap Meet in the West, Camp Plymouth April 14-19, 2020

    All of the Sherman tank engines were odd-ball gasoline engines. Here is the 1st engine, the 30 cylinder A57 radial engine. It had 5 banks of 6 cylinders each, it produced 400hp but was extremely heavy. Later engines were an Air Cooled Continental 7 cylinder radial, and a Ford V8 that was 2...

    That is true. People forget that the M4 Sherman was a medium tank with a 75mm cannon. They were cheap and quick to manufacture with the idea being to flood the battlefield with them. But they were at a disadvantage in the open countryside against heavy tanks with 88mm cannons. I understand that...

    I hope I'm not going too far off topic but, since were are on the subject of the Battle of Stalingrad, and our hobby is Military Vehicles, I couldn't pass this up. This is the recovery of a Russian T-34/76 tank from the Don River, that's just a few miles from the City of Volgograd where the...
