Actually the GSA left us with mostly fresh and almost full fuel tanks in need of only being topped off. It was a fun ride!

It's powered by a cat c10 and has a 7speed allison tranny. It will fly! it's the smoothest mil truck i've ever driven. And really quiet. It's almost car like.

You'll need a good plan. It's guarded with the m60 tank. I'll get some pics. The interior is pretty wild. The dash wraps around the driver and the shifter is push button. It has dash vents like it's sopossed to have a/c. It's hard to see, but it's the one being fueled in the above pic. It's on super singles with CTIS.

Hey DR, I must have missed a post somewhere. Which museum are you now affiliated with?

Warmest regards,
Opie

Ken and I are members of the Military Museum of Texas here in Houston. Yep, the M60 is an impressive tank to behold. It will guard the five ton with gusto and then some! So for those with sultry motives BEWARE of the big gun and multitudes of 50 cals. and other assorted automatic weaponry. The picture of swiss cheese comes to mind repeatedly for some odd reason..........................;)

No worries.

I have a friend with an ex-Special Forces basset hound. That dog can sneak up on anybody and even in NVG's, folks look at him and all they see is a cuddly pooch with big ears. They'd never know what happened, one minute the truck would be there, the next minute, just a trail of drool.

Here's a pic of the dog in Airborne training:
