    Over the last year my 1971 M35A2 has gone from a beat to heck firetruck to the glorious beast you see now. After many trials, shady companies and lots of effort she is finally almost complete. I say almost because we are never done working on these vehicles, and I'm proud to have a project that will outlive me.

    Whether it's car shows or group events I love taking this truck anywhere and everywhere.

    General Non-Sense entered into the scene a few years ago as a truck a friend owned and wanted gone. I took it to Durhamtown, tried to sell him for what the owner had in him and got no nibbles. I came home and decided that I could go to work on a Monday which I previously was unable to do after a Durhamtown trip in my Deuce. I sold the Deuce and became the owner of a bone stock never really touched M923A0. My boys were excited and thanks to friends on here, General Non-Sense attracted a Legend of a truck from Columbus, Ga to attend a Leesburg Spirit of Christmas Parade. Papabear and crew came down with "Proud American GunTruck" and were obviously the star of the show that day but General Non-Sense retained operational control of the event. Shortly after that I made a trade with a gentleman on here in North Carolina to get some new tires for exchange for the wheels and tires that were on the truck. I made a fun trip with a member for the ride and install once we got home. Now the truck looked tough as evidenced by the last few pictures. General Non-Sense attended a Vietnam Veterans event at a Church in Americus to round out these photos. He's not period correct for that crowd but they still love seeing a tri-color camo truck and they know he's a Veteran a mile away.

    Years have gone by since I first got the truck but I'll try my best to summarize these pictures. Leesburg Spirit of Christmas Parade which he has attended every year since I got him, line up in my yard in 2017 (he has friends), Briggs 10th Birthday (He wanted to ride to the train museum in a truck powered by an 855 train engine), 2018 GA Rally group picture, Christmas Tree Mission the day after Thanksgiving 2018, HMMWV Towing Mission in January 2019, Flag Mount fitment in November 2018 at member Welder1's shop, a sticker that thankfully did not get put on my wife's Tahoe (Did I mention my son love's trains?), 73M819 loading a engine stand in him at the 2015 GA Rally because who doesn't miss Ron, My youngest son at Ron's Memorial stating that this is not a day to be sad and finally General Non-Sense attending a Vietnam Welcome Home event at the local Zoo last month. This truck is worthy of your consideration, he's touched quite a few lives and continues to soldier on 35 years after he was manufactured. I have hundreds of pictures of him participating in local events and I always preach the positive side of Military Vehicle ownership. Like anything un-necessary, my better half reminds me that I'd have a few more dollars in the bank if I didn't keep stuff like this around. I always remind her that the smiles on my boys faces and the stories Veterans share with me after seeing this truck are priceless. I'm one myself, OIF I and III.
