looking good and nice attention to detail. I'm getting ready to re-start the wrecker build. I still have the wrecker story you sent me.

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.:beer:

Here is a quick update. Not going to say a lot but progress is made. The engine panel is a test of the color shade for the gun box. :-D

Guess I can throw a bone out there for 2015, getting closer. Got a few miles on it last fall.
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.

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.

Hey PB. I talked with one of them tonight on the phone. He was one of the drivers on Brutus in 69. Him and another guy are looking to purchase a truck and a museum in WI has offered to build it for them.
