    Kia Military Vehicles

    I was searching to for the stock wheel size on the 5 ton SEORTM and a video for KIA Military Vehicles popped up in the search. Even though it was from 2010, there were some pretty unique designs presented. Maybe a new source for parts. Just wander into you local KIA dealership and get parts for...

    M561/M792 Gama Goat Parts thread

    I hope this can become 'just' a M561/M792 Gama Goat Parts thread. No conversations, jokes or polls. Since there are 5 or 6 projects currently in the process of getting Goats up and running, plus the handful of Goat owners with historic info from when they were completing their restorations...

    Gama gama hey!

    Since it is becoming all the rage, all the cool kids are doing it, and since the gama goat website doesn’t look like it will be revived any time some, let me post up my gama goat recovery. I too have been enamored by the ugly mug of the gama goat, a mug that only certain ‘muthas’ could love...

    Did this steel soldier get saved or go to the SCRAPPER!

    This box was on GSA near Burns Oregon. I wanted it to replace parts on my SEORTL. Bur someone wanted it way more than I did. If you got it and want to part it let me know, my box was cannibalized by the RFD that turned it into a command center.

    Bobbed DUKW

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this, but I think that if it were posted in the WWII CCKW section there might be an even bigger purist blasphemous outcry. So has anyone ever thought about bobbing a DUKW and putting it up on 395's? Then to go a step further put an 80's 350 Chevy, with...

    So I am getting ready to get the Gull Wing fixed up for parade / rally season. I was thinking about the exterior appearance and I could use some input on the paint and windows.
