This is a topic to give hope to those of us that are still working on our machines and a chance for everyone to show their finished product to the world.

I went through the drive-through once (not in a halftrack, but an m37) and the wait was so long and that day so hot that right when I finally got my food and was going to drive-off I got vapor-lock :x That was a little embarassing. Had to have about three people help me push it out of the way. Stupid ethanol gasoline!

Here are two before photos of my M3 Diamond T... I had a much better starting point then most since I had all the original armor, etc.... but as usual, I got carried away in the retoration. These photos are from the Fall of 2007. We started the restoration in May 08 and the after photo is from Labor Day weekend (Feb 10).
