    USAF GMC 5500 utiity truck info needed

    Yeah...... things are getting a bit rough up here, and a new F-22 Raptor is just not in the budget.

    Maine rally 2015

    A few people have shown interest in another get together. I have traditionally had one on Father's day weekend in the past. Probably a different weekend will be better to allow time for planning and such. I am now in Dexter and will play host. I'm open for suggestions on a good weekend...

    New member from Maine, looking at buying a Stewart and Stevenson M 1078.

    Good luck on the bidding. There are a ton of laws that conflict each other. A pain for sure. Let us know how it works out. :)

    A deuce will pull a nine ton trailer, however it is under powered. Plenty of low gears to work with but slower than death on a hill. Most military trucks were designed to haul loads in the bed instead of on a trailer, as trailers off road don't work well. Should handle short hauls ok if your...

    Maine Rally 2013

    Cool. Glad everything worked well for you. You did some nice work on your truck. Mine is due for a make-over. Might go to drab, but I find I kind of like the 3 color camo to..... I fired it up today. Woke from its slumber with only a minor problem. Needs a new starter switch, Still the most...

    Maine Rally 2013

    We are considering a spot in Penobscot as well as Dexter. Both have advantages and disadvantages. It will likely be optional Friday night for those early starters, through Sunday afternoon. Going to move it from Fathers Day weekend as several people have had stuff going on. But it will be around...

    Maine Rally 2013

    Its that time again..... Time to plan the 5th Maine rally. We used Maine Military last year with mixed results. Tried it do the usual overnight, only had one taker, then I was a bit under the weather and abandon ship. (Sorry Katahdin) still feel bad as he made the longest trip. Fine tuneing...
