I've downsized my MV Fleet from 20 to only 6 total. I don't even have time to keep the 6 in good running order
Word! I did that many years ago went from 8 down to one and now I just have my one project that I'm working on and once it's done (if ever) I will just enjoy driving and maintaining it.

The only major change for Papabear is he now has a very large building just crying for new MV's :deadhorse:
Unfortunately the very large building and the property has left a VERY LARGE hole in my wallet that will be there for a few years. By then, I won't remember that I wanted another MV.:clinto::naner:

I did not win the truck nor did I even bid on it. I'll have to admit, I certainly thought about it!:drool: Does anyone know how much it sold for?

I've downsized my MV Fleet from 20 to only 6 total. I don't even have time to keep the 6 in good running order so new projects are pretty much out for me........ unless:roll:

Right there with you PB, I went from 16 big trucks, now with the sale of the wrecker, I am down to just the M151A1,with no plans to buy any other MVs anytime soon.

Hopefully it only takes 1500 posts or so before it's done!!
When you start that restoration thread, please be sure to post a link to it here so we don't miss it.

Thanks.


How far did you have to go for that recovery?
Almost looks like it was a local run for you.... under the cover of darkness as well - The stuff a good mystery is made of.

I guess I could take the K18-C out to the airfield on Fort Benning and guide WWII aircraft in if any happen to come by.:clinto::shrugs:

The BC-325 weighs almost 900 pounds. It did not get the nickname 'refrigerator' by accident (or maybe it did when someone got crushed). It was rated at 100 watts voice or 400 watts CW (Morse Code). I have a Ten-Tec Omni that can beat those specs which only weighs 30 pounds with power supply. Technology has come a long way since the 1930's.
