    Not mine. Not my ad. I was surfing Craigs list for used gun safes and somehow this came up. It’s a funny ad for an old deuce and a half multi fuel army truck. It kind of reminds me of an ad I saw a long time ago for A Harley that was for sale. Anyways I kind of wish I had about 4 or 5 country squares. A few thousand acres. I have one of these just to go fiddle farting around with

    This ad is a must read

    Nice. I remember those things whistling and never knew if it was the turbo or what. It got louder and higher pitched as the engine RPM increased.

    I had to get a licenses to drive one of those while in the Marines (in case my driver/A driver was killed and I had to drive a truck to toe my howitzer) and I don't know what he's talking about as far as being a work out to drive. It's not any more difficult than any other large vehicle. It seems like the ones I drove had to be doubled clutched. They don't have air conditioning, basically no heater/defroster, and vacuum windshield wipers. They ride like a buckboard and get stuck easy. We couldn't keep the windshield from icing up during winter training exercises.

    Seems like I was always waiting on the darn things to arrive, and when they often didn't for one reason or the other, we'd just hump it back to the barracks.

    I actually got to where I could "float shift" our old deuce that we used in our maintenance section LOL...always heard lots of stories of the A Driver on those trucks losing hearing in his right ear, I can believe it if you rode in one enough, exhaust stack being right outside passenger window
