    I will get active once I am back at my main computer with the pictures. For now, the most important pics from the repair activities in the Netherlands as I showed them in last month's competition.


    DSC_0004_resize.jpg . IMG_8552_resize.jpg . 2011 07 July 11 .jpg

    The truck in it's original form as 6x6 dump truck, removing the dump bed, and the tractor version.


    2011 July APK 018.jpg . 2011 July APK 023_resize.jpg

    Needed to add extra main lights at the front because the original lights are too much in the centre. With that done, the truck got its original serial number put back into the frame and the truck became a street-legal dump truck / tractor combo.

    Also have a look at the pictures and the story I added last month

    Hi All,
    A little background on the 1942 Ford GPA Amphibious Jeep. It really is Jeep based, with a frame, engine, and 4 wheel drive power train all taken from the basic wartime Jeep. Additions are made with a PTO to run the propeller and the bilge pump(when needed!). Rubber boots protect both the drive shaft entrances and the steering linkage as they go through the hull. The exhaust runs out the right front side about at the water line. A capstan winch (as used with the Jeep and Weasel) is driven by the engine with a selectable engagement from the dash.

    Now the hard to believe part: I got this GPA, back in the day, by trading it for an M37 3/4 ton. Was a hard choice since the Dodge had made a 10,000 mile trip to the CDN NW territories, down through the Rockies and back home, requiring only an adjustment to the voltage regulator. Then spend many years restoring other vehicles while gathering up many NOS parts for the GPA.

    Rebuilt engine and all power train parts so she runs like new. Minimal modifications (all removable): used an aftermarket aluminum high compression head in anticipation of the extra 1000 pounds of weight; installed a drop in M38 waterproof distributor and wiring in anticipation of some water getting on the ignition at some point.

    Wow the MV's up for Top are incredible again this month. After the talk about the pool and the MV jetski, and now a GPA with the summer ending and the lake shot.

    Well it is hard to resist, but the one question that I have is,
    "where is the diving board".
    You know a fella has to have an edge to get the Gals.
