Neph's M-37

How I got started? My nephew Charlie who has served in the army in Iraq and Afganistan has taken a liking to old MVs. He is serving now in Afganistan. He has only seen his masterpiece in pictures. He was looking on Internet when he saw this 52 M-37 for sale at the Yankee Air Force Museum near Detroit. So my brother and I went up there from here in Florida and got it for him. YAF did a great job of body work and paint. They put all new brakes, fuel tank and fuel pump into it. The other issues I am working on. It's alot of fun! This was a basic Korean war era truck. I have added solid state turn signal with the bigger composite lamps. I am a retired locomotive engineer and my new hobby is fixing up this old truck. I have read all 57 pages of the M-series archives here and boy are they helpful. Thank you all for the wisdom shared here. When Charlie comes home in march he will have a safe and reliable ride because of your help. I will post a picture when I can get a young person to show me how!

Congratulations!

I was about to tell you to post pictures, but it looks like you're working on it.

Itching to see it.

Why is it that the inside of old truck cabs smell so good?
