Come on Dave be a good father and get this for Sam He would be the coolest kid in school and just think he wouldn't get into any trouble with it unless he launched it North of Lewiston and decided to John Wayne it over the falls.This is too cool not to share. Seems a bit pricey but I know nothing about them.
Philadelphia, on the Delaware. "Ride the Ducks" tours of Philly. They used to give everyone those kids duck calls as well until the city complained oabout the noise.Didn't one of them break down in the middle of a river or lake and then got run over by a barge ?
Jason, I believe I was your chauffeur during the Gulf event. I had restored that DUKW for the Galveston battle. Odd feeling to drive down the beach and hook a turn into the surf and keep on driving. Of course floating off the beach and being strafed by Jap Zero's was really surreal.Seems like a pretty good price to me for a functioning truck. I rode in one in the Gulf Of Mexico for a WWII event several years ago, scary. Also rode in an "Alligator" for an hour or so at Lake Ponchartrain. Super scary and holy hell the fumes. J
Yes I have a friend who knows him well. They still speak of that episode in military vehicle circles around here.I met an old guy up in Utah who had one, and much much more, he actually drove one across the english channel,he was just a little crazy,we got along well.
That was Jack Tomlin. He passed away several years ago. Great guy and yes, a little crazy. At the Denver MVCC convention he drove his V-100 around the Holiday Inn parking lot at night shooting a gas .50 at airliners flying in.They are very much like a boat, "a big hull you pour money into", I've seen a couple fully restored to military spec,those are cool,I hate to see them after they have been butchered for tourist use.
