A little about me: I have been interested in military history for quite some time, and have considered myself to be fairly good with tools, and thought the restoration of a war horse might be a fun and learning project. It has been! With the exception of sandblasting the bed and the wheels, the entire project has been completed by me, learning, “on the job”
I am a member of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, and past on Board of Directors for Friends of Reclaiming Our Heritage, an annual tribute to the veterans and current service men and women at the VA Hospital Ground in Milwaukee Wisconsin. I spent my professional career in law enforcement, finishing out that career as a Chief of Police.
I receive a lot of emails pertaining to the M-37 and military vehicles, but just to be fair, and clear, I am no expert. I am however willing to share the information and knowledge I have gathered in this restoration, and daily operations. I can also provide some contacts to some folks that I have come to rely on for advice, products, etc.
Feel free to send me suggestions, or ask a question, I’ll do my best to answer.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
My wife and I also run an online auction site, dealing primarily in antiques. I specialize in selling militaria there as well, so you may want to check it out from time to time if you’re interested in Military Radios, as I do list them for sale. Past radios I have sold include, BC-603, BC-312,314,611’s, AN/GRC-19, various aircraft radios and more. If you’d like to see our current listings click here at http://legendary-antiques.com (it’ll open in a new window) And you can sign up for the newsletter that will let you know of upcoming auctions. (Check the eBay link as well, a lot of my militaria gets listed there)
As many of you in the MV collecting and restoration field know, it takes hard work and funds to keep these rolling pieces of history going. It takes me a lot of time and money to keep this site open, the domain paid for, the server space, software, computer, etc. I answer all the emails I get and help folks like you find the answers you need. I am asking that, if you can, please consider making a donation in whatever amount you feel comfortable with in helping me and my M37,
“Keep History in Motion” and preserve the legacy.
