Thanks PB for the offer......................I cant commit to anything just yet. Lets see what happens in July.....Right now I am going day by day with it. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather up here.Jeff, Ron (Black Widow) and I were talking a few minutes ago on the phone and if we can get your "Brutus" and Brandon's "Justifier" down here we have a shot at having 10 replica/tribute Guntrucks in one place at the same time. That has been done only once since Vietnam...at Pigeon Forge, TN.
JATONKA promised if I brought Proud to PA he would bring Aces and Eights down here, and as far as I know he plans to. Ron has enlisted a crew of Marine pilots to help him drive Black Widow up.
The plans are taking shape and I'm getting excited.
If you can get "Brutus" down here, I/we will be sure you get some help with fuel money etc. I can also help with a crash pad if you wanna sleep in my raggedy ole camper and you can shower in the truck shop...or the camper. It also has a stove, fridge, AC...etc.
Just some stuff to think about...motivation wise.
She's a beautiful truck for sure JT. I'm sure she will do ya Proud!!P Bear, I'm starting to work on Aces & Eights in the next week or so, 12 New tires, a turbo, a cargo cover, a pyro, and an oil change and a lot of serious prayers that this happens with calm happiness . JT
Papa Bear, I am coming with Aces & Eights, I still can't believe I committed, but, I'm on. 12 new 11.00x20's, turbo on a non turbo Deuce, some extra electric stuff and we're on our way!!!!!!!!!! You better be ready to cart me in or out if I break. John T
Sorry JT, You will be solo on this trip. I still will be working the bugs out of the ole girl. Come up in July and we will smoke some cigars and have a few cold ones under the GP...............got a couple guests coming this yr.Keep going Jeff, meet me in PA. on 8/3/14 for the convoy south, it'll be a long lonely ride otherwise. JT
Jeff, one of the guys at the Gathering this year mentioned he and some others were going to try and build Brutus. I didn't get his name or location because I was being grabbed and pulled in four directions at once and I had forgotten you were doing this truck.Guess I can throw a bone out there for 2015, getting closer. Got a few miles on it last fall.

Do you have some sorta group helping with this or are these guys totally separate?
I'm sorry Brother...I wish I had gotten a name or SOME kind of information from the feller.
