    Question M715 Owners Near Wisconsin

    Hey guys,

    Well... long story short... I did a 66 Chevy C10 with a 5.3L "LS" swap... it however did not fix my olive drab itch. I'm looking for a happy alternative... smaller then a deuce and still a ragtop.

    I'd like to simply just have any current m715 owners near the Green Bay area give me an opportunity to simply just crawl around one... get a real idea for its size and scope... and a quick convo of what and what not to look for regarding areas of concern. (axles, frame weakness, rust hot spots etc).

    While I've read some of the TM's regarding its size... in person I feel is such a better judge of character. (Wow the first time I looked at an m35a2... I had to take a step back and say "Do I really want something this big"....

    I don't want to drive 6 hours to go look to purchase one and then say that with the m715.

    Any takers?

    I'm across the lake from you on the Michigan shoreline, but I know there are several Wisconsin owners over at the http://www.m715zone.com Maybe one of them will be close enough that you could take a peek at them.

    Thanks for the reminder on the zone..(totally forgot about it).. I spent a whole bunch of time reading/researching over there the past month but probably worth me registering and asking there given the potentially higher volume of 715 owners per day.

    A buddy of mine who doesn't use the internet just bought one. We are hoping to have it ready for Iola this year.

    Not a response yet over there (m715 zone) either... so hopefully between the two sites I get someone relatively close to go explore around.

    I have a few "This Year Pics" of my M715 if interested. Had to make a rush trip back to AZ, flew from Appleton to Mesa. Misplaced your email address in the turmoil. Back in the UP for the summer. I'm at ericbd@chartermi.net
