    Jack is always there when I stop in. He is a great guy, just plan to spend a while there. He will talk to you like you are friends and will show you anything he has as long as he isn't helping someone else!

    I have recently become interested in the M35A2's, and I am thrilled to find out that there is someone here in town that has loads of them! I had to laugh, because after seeing where Jack's yard is I realize I have probably driven past it dozens of times since I have lived in Tucson.

    For those of you who have personal experience with Jack, it sounds like he's the kinda guy that could probably tell you enough about the history of these vehicles to write a book. I really enjoy talking to these kind of guys. I know a guy here in town that has a warehouse full of old guns and other war memorabilia, and I wouldn't be suprised if they know each other....

    I will try and stop by his place on my next day off and see if he will chat with me about deuces. I should probably call beforehand?

    Thanks all, have a good one!
    If you plan on spending a lot of time there (I would set aside an entire day if I were you), he appreciates people calling ahead so that he knows you're coming, and will tell you if he won't be around that day. Other than that, just walk in any time, and find the old skinny guy wearing all denim with white hair and a white beard. That's Jack.

    Just looked at the older thread with the pics as well and googled the map and looked at street view and zoomed down with google earth and ... and ... and .... and .... sigh, why do I live on the wrong side of the ocean?

    How do they do it, how they get there?

    I know these people always start small, buy a few trucks sell some to get money for the next, but then with the special one's it gets out of hand. Jack planned it like this or he just woke up one morning and looked out of the window and thought "Holy cr*p, how many trucks do I have now?"

    I thought these Dutch brothers (the US trucks brother and the EU trucks brother) were a bit overdone, but this,
