    Due to stuck valves and bent pushrods, the 601 was a 'trailer queen' for the Weare 2012 rally. She should be in tip-top shape next week after a valve job. There are pictures of the 601 at the rally in the Weare 2012 thread, but I'll post a few here as well. Later I'll post a picture of the push rods.

    If you got a chance to poke around the 601, post here. I just can't remember everyone that stopped by. Also, let's see any pictures you took.

    On the flats, and with nice new tracks that you are very very confident of, it should do up to 55MPH. I feel much better at 25-35MPH.

    For you Air Force men, did you ever see a T114/M114 armored command and recon vehicle. We have one in camo tan and brown that we got from the Nebraska State Patrol swat team. I have been unable to find any specifics on this as its only got 2 hatches, no weapons and had a big Onan generator and radio gear. It has RF warning decals on the outside. Help??? Thanks, Paul

    Ford 223 inline 6. This wasn't designed to be a groomer-type snowcat that usually tops out at 15-20MPH.

    Did not know the M114 APC was used by the USAF. Wikipedia says it was used by the Army in Nam, but didn't work out to well and was retired into the hands of civilian police departments. More here...
