The Find 1956 GMC V-8 Hydramatic 4X4 Truck
Here's the whole story of finding a Title and tracking down a 1956 GMC V-8
Hydramatic 4X4 truck. From the truck I found the Title in, to the prep,
loading, transport, unloading and a tour of the truck itself. Don't forget
the out-takes at the end! They also include a couple of really nice
southern Oregon scenery shots.
1968 GMC Water Truck 671 Detroit Diesel Cold Start First Start for the Season.
The Old 68 GMC comes out of the woods for another Fire Season. Wasn't
enough fuel in the tank for the pump to pick it up because of the grade it
was parked on. A little purgin, starting fluid and 15 gallons of fuel
later, it's ready to make more episodes!
The 48 Brill turned out to be a 46. It's still here waiting for the
transporter to take it to it's new home. I'll post the departure video when
the time comes.

1927 REO Truck - Slide Pack
I'm working on an old 1927 REO truck that has been left open to the weather
for many years and as a result is in a fairly poor state. However it is not
past the point where it cannot be restored, so join me on a journey to see
if I can get it back on the road.
Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in
probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug
wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but
couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before
shooting the vid!
