Indeed, it is a Willys 'slatgrill' MB, one of the first 25.808 made MB's. Great pic!

Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than in a Yugo.

Picked up this and another photo after a long dry spell of not finding a single worthwhile item...more like a world wide drought than just a dryspell !post-70300-0-81201300-1515858788_thumb.jpg

Here's one of my grandfather behind the wheel of a 10 ton hauling a crane.

It's a Brockway B666, the pontoon-carrying version of the 6-ton White 666 cargo truck. A rare truck now, but Dinky Toys made a nice toy version. :)

Thanks! I never really looked into that truck. Here is a picture of a few more and a Diamond-T wrecker:

great pics again! The Harley seems to be a civilian model? The halftrack is an early example, I think an M2.

Will post a few from my albums. Mainly from my grandfather with Support company, 689th Field Artillery Battalion, but a few from his friends and his brothers. I have no idea whose are whose unless I know who is in them. I will label them as they are on the back.
