    I gave up collecting military vehicles when I decided to focus on uniforms.  I miss my M29C Weasels Sad  My primary runner had white and OD camo painted by the Norwegians.

    Heh... you know it's a small world when you Google "m29c weasel" to find a generic picture of a Norwegian Weasel and you instead find a picture of your own that someone absconded for their website Very Happy



    I took this picture right after it was delivered and before I had done any work on it.  That was 1999.  Yesh, a few years back, eh?

    Thanks Jim - this is one that I restored/rebuilt. Like most vehicles that were used in central Canada, the body had rusted out very badly due to winter road salt use. The camouflage pattern is a variation on a type that was typical from the mid 1970s up to the mid 1980s when these jeeps were sold off.

    The radio set is the C42, which was still used in the 1970s by Canadian forces.

    Hey Andrew. I purchased the Land rover "Perentie" as is, but rebuilt the series 3 from the ground up. The one I use as my AVATAR I finished in January & sold. {to many toys she said}. The Perentie I have is just a general service cargo model, the army had special Perenties that were fitted for radio 'FFR' I haven't researched what radios were fitted but being Commonwealth they may be similar to yours. Jim. Posting this pic of the series 3 being loaded to go to Namibia,
    painted white for UN duty." front left" Jim.

    They look like interesting trucks Jim, and your restoration work is impressive. I know how much effort is involved.

    Hello Antarmike. Great vehicles with provenance as well. Is the forward control in the shed a recovery vehicle or Air force. Once again great stuff. Jim.

    There was a dummy Rapier being hawked in the UK about ayear ago, they do come up from time to time. There has even been a launcher for sale, but launchers are very rare! The 101 is a working truck now, so I am not kitting it out as TRT, and besides the cab makes it too unoriginal to be a true show vehicle. It is what it is now,, and brings firewood back from the woods whenever I get the chance...

    Co- owned this beautiful Korean War vintage 6X6  with a couple of childhood friends in the late '70s through the late '90s .  Sold it off to a boat yard when we could no longer afford to keep it serviced and parked..

    Had tons of fun with this vehicle, especially in winter; we would cruise snow choked roads and pull out stuck vehicles for beer money...  We drank alot of beer back then... Very Happy

    In mild weather we would take it to military vehicle shows and always won  trophies with  it..

    Hi ripcord. I think all collectors can kick themselves sometimes remembering the stuff they didn't buy or sold when they should have kept it, hopefully the truck went to a good home. Regards Jim.

    Jim,

    That thing was loads of fun.

    In the days before SUVs, it  was a real oddity to see a functioning GI vehicle on the road ( and off ) in this area.

    Had to sell this beast  and others when we lost access to a yard where we also kept  a bunch of varied and ancient International Harverster 4X4 trucks and a couple of GI Jeeps.

    The Truck is still working in the boat yard, , the Jeeps are on a farm, and the other stuff was probably made into Toyotas or razor baldes long ago.

    Jim,

    Thompson is a semi auto version of the famous SMG ; notice the rifle lenght barrell.

    It is a genuine Auto Ordnance piece made in the '70s, but not an SMG.. The M1 is a carbine, not an M1 rifle,and there is an AR15 on a bipod in the open window.

    The Thompson was sold to a friend long ago ( it was too expensive to operate )..
