    Hi
    Well I jumped into this race because it was dragging at the beginning with a very strong first truck in scarring us all away.

    But being the Holiday Season here are some pictures of playing in the snow with CMPs in particular Beauty my 1942 C60S Pattern 13 Cab Radio Truck.

    Off the three CMPS Beauty has always had the long highway legs it just like to run. With its original 216 cubic inch stovebolt Chevy motor we used to kid that it did 0-60 MPH in 12 minutes on flat ground with a slight tail wind. But it has always like to cruise once leading a convoy up Route 89 in New Hampshire drove it for over an hour never shifted gears never had my foot off the floor it would slow down on the hills to 30mph and pick up to about 65mph on the down grades. Now with 261cubic inch version of the stovebolt Chevy it is not any faster top end but it goes up hills a lot better.

    When I want an MV for a long trip its Beauty that gets the nod. Last photo is coming back across the US Canadian Boarder.

    Here is a little video you might get a kick out of.


    Marry Christmas to all and Seasons Greetings.

    Always a great group of vehicles each month in this thread.

    Cheers Phil

    Default There is a story behind that video

    Hi

    Glad you enjoyed the video there is a story behind the previous video and this one.




    They started off as time and motion studies of how long does it take one man to pull and install engine in a CMP. Having three trucks of nearly identical engine compartment design wanted to look at all the steps. Done with a game camera set on motion detection. This is actually speeded up a lot but is actually comprised of many many individual photos. Has been useful remembering what order to do things.

    If you add up the time, bottom left, it was taking me 7 hours from truck driving in to engine on the stand. But putting it back in takes a little longer 52 hours.

    Cheers Phil

    Remember in case of a tie, duplicate Decembers will be awarded.

    Good morning/good day to all your MV enthusiasts.
    This time we´ve got the MAN 5ton was the first time they add some interesting paperwork with the truck.
    We have a look at the usage off this truck since the year 2000. So we have records for not quite the half of his life.

    IMG_7804.jpg IMG_20181125_150735.jpg

    First entry is the 07.06.2000 (DD.MM.YYYY) , our MV served at the 7. Instandsetzungs Kompanie located in Kosovo as a member of the KFOR troops.
    Some swaps to other Inst. or Logistic battalions and then at the 18.08.2005 the MAN shipped back to Darmstadt-Germany.

    IMG_7806.jpg IMG_7805.jpg

    And then in 2007 they changed the Engine, Trany, split, clutch, drive axels, brakes winch, heater......, great
    After that this MV was at the Flugabwehrlehrregiment in North Germany. After retired in 2012 with about 12/14.000 km on the odo(after the big rebuild) it took his commission at the Katastrophenschutz at the island Fehmarn which we purchased this MV 5 years and 2500 km later.

    Four days left and the excitement continues.
