    The Deuce

    As many of you know I bought a M35A2 Deuce and a Half last week. Dirty drove it home in a blinding rain storm. At first he couldn't get the wipers to work so, he started with the manual lever.

    It's a 1971 American General with the Continental 465 turbo charged diesel engine. It's a 6x6 with Mack axles. The brakes are air over hydraulic. It's big, loud and ugly but, a lot of fun.

    When we've driven it around town people wave or give us a thumbs up, a couple have saluted.

    There is a guy in town (I don't know him) that parts these out. When I drive by I see axles on a rack, wheels laying around, bare frames, sometimes the box. A few times a truck setting before he takes it apart. I assume he sells to the "monster" truck builders

    You made my day, Mike. Thanks for posting. I mentioned to my wife that your wife wouldn't allow it in the driveway.

    My wife said that she would allow it as long as she could drive it. That almost sounds like an invitation to start a search. There is a guy not far from here that buys and sells them. There are a few on the streets and more in stone quarries. Seems like just a good every day driver to me.
