Eeny, meeny, miny, moe... Pick a wrecker (or a 5 ton or a CUCV II) by the toe!!!

There are 6 awesome trucks in the running this month!

My vote goes to a wrecker that was resurrected from a big ditch. I mean, all those repairs must have been a big **tch.

Let the voting begin!!!!

Here's another tough month, every MV here is really nice. Several very nice wreckers, a nice clean troop carrier, and even the CUCV II truck is really fine. Guy, this very important decision might require a glass or two of your Plumb Schnapps. 🥃

My CUCVII is very rare. Only 800 were made for US military, 3,000 for overseas. Restored this one over the summer. I have another with the sequential VIN and registration number that I hope to restore by the end of January.

I assume people that vote against me are doing it out of jealousy because I have air conditioning, surround sound, and overdrive. :ROFLMAO:

From what I can see in the picture, it is very clean indeed. How about a few more pics, some of the interior & under the hood would be nice.

Well have you ever wanted to cry?...over a situation (Totally out of ( Your control.)), And maybe just maybe beyond your ability to 'rescue it?)..Well..I..(Actually)..Did!.
Both, Cry and rescue!.

I still can not watch this video without considerable emotion. (Pictures of the "Impossible" ( told by all and everyone!).repair follow).

Pictures of the repairs. "You have to remove the bumper winch radiator steering box and mounting plate lift the engine AT LEAST 8 inches" and more. to remove the rivets and replace the spring hanger bolts inside the chassis. BEHIND the steering box plate.
I did non of that!. It did however take me 3 days per bolt to fiddle the new bolts into the chassis,,,On the..The end of an 18 inch long steel wire rod!!,
Then pull them through..with......a fo strong magnet!!.
