Dodge Boys at Camp Petaluma 2018

Post by timsresort » Sat Jan 20, 2018 11:14 am

We are fortunate to have a large contingent of members that own the venerable military Dodge. Therefore we are attempting a low-key, big-turnout Dodge event at Camp Petaluma. All Dodges are welcome, all eras, drive, push, pull or drag, restored or not. Can we match our record of 11 command cars, set in 2011? The display is slated for Friday, 2PM to whenever. The tentative site is the road between row L and M, near the clubhouse and food trucks. There will be great opportunities for photos, comparison, and socializing in and around the vehicles that we love. There will be t-shirts for those that pre-ordered, and there may be a few extras. We will provide an identification placard that you will fill out and post on your vehicle. Also, we would like to encourage all that have before and after photos, build cards, or any other interesting info on their truck to bring it and display it. We are working on making this a fun day for all participants and visitors and we would like to get a count of what will be expected. For those planning on bringing a truck, if you could provide year and model that would be appreciated, and I'll start a list here.
1. 1941 WC16 Tim Coolbaugh
2. M43 Dan McCluskey
3. M37 Dan McCluskey
4. 1941 WC16 John Duckett
5. 1953 Air Force contract M37 John Werner

9. 1941 WC23 Jennifer Tanis
10. 1941 WC8 Russ Rice
11. 1941 WC24 Lee Edwards

I think you'll have a better photo op if you locate the showcase down in either the helo field or the lower parking area by the entrance drive.

Friends of mine, (Steve and Duncan) will be bringing their '42 WC-56 ! (The one that konked out last year on the trail ride to the coast) I've sorted the ignition woes so it's good to go! We'll be taking it on the ride to the coast again this year, too. I'll probably be driving it again.

Great, I'll put them on the list. I was wondering about that truck. There is another WC56, Eric from So Cal. Anyone know about him? We are close to the number of command cars that we had in 2011. Remember: push pull or drag, you still get in the photo.

If it's an open cab with a PTO winch, you're in.
