    Dad and I started working on our CCKW in 2006 after really getting interested in MVs at the 2006 MVPA National Convention in Dayton. We purchased it from a good family friend, on who's farm it had been sitting for several years where it had been used as a lime spreader along with a GMC CCW parts truck. Much engine, brake, hydrovac, steering, and exhaust work has been done; and it's really come together over the past year. Even trecked over 130 miles with the MVPA when the Transcontinental Motor Convoy made it way through Ohio this last June, and didn't have any problems. How's that for a trial run!
