all original 1962 GM PD4106! Through the efforts of Brad Kelly, he donated
the funds for the museum to purchase the bus from the owner. The bus was
missing it's starter and had been sinking into the lawn for about four
years. We installed a donated starter, some fresh batteries and she fired

It's Official! The Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park is finished!
Although the weather was pretty wet, we got about 45 minutes on the early

International Harvester TD5 Crawler Finally Running after 15 Years
This is a 1959 McCormick International TD5 crawler. The poor thing hasn't
really been running in about 15 years, but was stored inside or covered up
for most of that time. The engine was rebuilt about 10 years ago but never
ran. The injector pump and injectors were rebuilt about 5 years ago. The
main clutch and steering clutches were done, too, but it sat so long
everything rusted solid. It took me several weekends (and one new set of
steering clutch fibers) to get her moving again. The hydraulics are
finished now and all that's left to do is install the grader blade and
loosen up some seized pins!
