I have made the plunge and purchased a m109a3 to restore and turn into an RV. Last fall at the Gilbert Military vehicle show, I spoke with John Tennis and he mentioned he had some vehicles for sale. I have spent alot of money at Johns tent at shows for the last two trucks and when he said he was selling trucksI had to ask for more info. John said he was looking to part ways with a really nice m109a3. I asked some questions about it and last November we spoke more about it and I came up to look at the truck and see if I could make this the 2020 project. John has the truck ready to go for a test drive. The truck ran like a top. For everyone that knows him, he is an amazing guy. He took great care of me and made sure that the truck was working flawless. What a great friend and good businessman. Anyone that wants or needs some parts for your m35a2s, I'd highly recommend him. It was 26 degrees outside with a wind chill of about 10 degrees and John hits the start button and it fires up. After we got back we talked and I called him not to long and agreed to purchase the truck. Here are the first photos of the truck when I saw it.
