Any way of updating our age, I have already bumped up a group in the stats. ? Then again, this might be a good way to always be young.

Since I first posted to this thread, I have added to my fleet as well as my age. So many surplus vehicles and so little money. Must chose wisely what I add.

I was 17 when I joined, 18 now.

Another poll idea: (Maybe this has been covered already but in case it hasn't): How old were you when you acquired your first MV? I know a member here who got his M923A1 as a 14 year old high school freshman. (Still has it 5 years later).

So, this poll started in 2009 at which time I would have entered that I was 72. That makes me 77 now. I acquired my first military vehicle in 1963, before most of the poll respondents were born. It was a 1953 Dodge M37 released by the U.S. Forest Service from a pine beetle spray control program in Woodland Park Colorado. I followed that with the purchase of an M101 trailer from a surplus equipment dealer in Denver. I paid more for the trailer than I did for the M37. After that I bought a couple of scrap M37's from Colorado State University for parts to keep my and my Brother-in-law's M37's running. And it has just continued. Through all the buying, I have sold very little. Just a CCUV and an M101 trailer that I flipped along the way. In my later military collectors life, my son and daughter have joined me in collecting. My Daughter started with her own Dodge M43 which she took years to get running and My son with his own M37 which regularly is the Chuck Wagon in and out of his annual hunting camp (except the year he surprised the world by getting his deuce to camp). The list of what we as a family own is long and varied. Looking for the more rare stuff now. Like the Dodge M2B I picked up last summer.

Got a pic maybe?
Built on a M56 Chassis for the Navy as a crash truck, one of 130 made. Not quite as old as me, but almost. My son has a 1941 AutoCar Radar truck that is closer to my age and one of three know to exist and his is the only on without a chopped frame. My son is in his 40's and has given up on SS because he can't seem to log on anymore.

That's a beauty; nice! Thanks for the pic.

It doesn't seem right about your son's SS problems.

Maybe he's dialed into the wrong frequency:
