Been about a year since I posted.  Have had the war wagon out at the hunting club where we get the old beast out every month or so for rides around the property.  Runs great and is a big hit with the club members and their kids.  Have had some minor maintenance issues over the past year or so but nothing major. 

Looks good covered in mud and dust. 
I just moved to Colorado but the track is staying here in California at the club for the near term.  Cold but sunny ride this morning and then to the clubhouse for cigars and burgers.  Good day

Merry Christmas all.

As of Monday, "Hell Hound" is now in Colorado!!!!   Thanks to Kevin Lockwood's recommendation, I contacted David Moore  (David Moore Trucking out of Oregon) and had my halftrack transported from NorCal to the mountains of Colorado.  David did an first class job.  Highly recommend him if you need transportation.  Halftrack is now safely parked in her new shop. 

Need to figure out if I need to re-jet the carb or just lean it out - went from sea level to 7200 feet and she is running rich and extremely sluggish.  Also need to figure out how to get it to the Air Force Academy for the next Army-Air Force game but I don't think they are coming back to Colorado until 2023??
