Photos of my trips to Frank's place...

These are photos of various vehicles and MV related items that I have taken while visiting Frank at his place in Eastern North Carolina.  Frank is is retired from active duty in the USMC...

If you have questions about any of these photos, send me an email and I'll try to provide an answer or will put you in touch with the truck's owner. 

These are some photos that I took when I went to Frank's to pick up a M101A1 3/4 ton trailer for a buddy and some stuff for my collection in 2002.

Photo Caption
1-2 Tires on Frank's M37.  Notice how narrow the lugs are.  I think these may be referred to as "sand" tires...
3 Flag mount on the end of the bumpers on Frank's M37 installed during active duty.
4-6 Shots of Frank's M37.
7-8 International fire trucks.
9-13 Frank's M38A1.
14-15 My M37 hooked up to the M101A1 that I was picking up.
16-20 Shots of the airborne CCKW 2.5 ton truck (WWII) that eventually made it to Norway and back to Frank.  Notice that the frame bolts together between the battery box and gas tank for transport (photo 19)...

These are photos that I took or that Frank sent me in October of 2003.
