    What am I looking at?

    I flipped through Fred W. Crismon's US Military Wheeled Vehicles. Unfortunately I was unable to locate a reference to this unique creature.

    Mighty Mite Questions

    Please call Daryl Bensinger. He will be able to better answer your question about parts availability. He could probably help you find a suitable candidate for restoration. :)

    Mighty Mite Questions

    Please read through my Operation Mighty Mite Miracle thread. I documented as much as possible during Jeannie's nearly 2.5 year long mechanical restoration journey. Thankfully she was running (sort of) prior to the restoration. These vehicles require deep pockets and plentiful patience to...

    Operation Mighty Mite Miracle

    I’ve driven Jeannie 644 miles since we brought her home. :driver: One issue, minor but somewhat inconvenient, is the position of the exhaust pipe. It ends under the driver side rear bumper. Our clothes smell like exhaust fumes after a ride. This is an issue that my wife wanted me to solve. I...

    Operation Mighty Mite Miracle

    Jeannie has a distinct personality. She really likes to run. She doesn't care if the temps are in the 90's or the 50's. She wants to be driven. She HATES going over 40 MPH. Her RPMs climb quickly, her engine gets hot, and she gets cranky. She also hates sitting for more than a month at a time. I...

    Operation Mighty Mite Miracle

    I just remembered another event she participated in last year. The First Florida MVPA rally in Mt. Dora. I drove her 45 miles one way nonstop to get there, and made the same trip home nonstop. Note to self: long drives in a M422 require at least 1 stop to stretch my legs. I had cramps by the...

    Operation Mighty Mite Miracle

    One of the issues I've discovered with the Mite is that it's essentially invisible, even in broad daylight. I've had to take evasive maneuvers multiple times to avoid getting into accidents. People frequently pull out right in front of me, cut me off, or run me off the road. As you can see from...

    Operation Mighty Mite Miracle

    My wife ran over a nail in her 2005 Tahoe PPV at the beginning of June last year. The local tire store has a tight parking lot that’s typically crowded and difficult to maneuver a dually around. I decided to pull the wheel off the truck and put the Mite to work. Much to my surprise, the wheel...

    Operation Mighty Mite Miracle

    At the very last minute, we decided to ambush fellow SS members by showing up at the 2019 Sanford Memorial Day Parade. A Mighty Mite parked next to a Chenowth - both privately owned - is a VERY rare sight!! Signalcorps worked very hard to get his FAV on the road. I love seeing it at events. :)...

    Operation Mighty Mite Miracle

    It's been A LONG time since I updated this thread. Numerous life events consumed my focus and energy and pulled me away from Steel Soldiers. There's no sense in recalling and recounting all the crapola, but I'm thankful that I survived it. Moving right along.... I'll try to catch y'all up on...
