Military vehicle Show, Iola, WI

Hi all, I had this on the "Pick a Jeep" post and thought I'd let other know. See you there, Keep 'em Rollin'!

For anyone interested, the Iola military show is coming up August 16,17 at the fairgrounds. I'm takin the "Civilian Jeep" and my M-416 trailer and camping for the weekend. My folks are taking up their neighbors Mule so we will have that to wheel around on for the weekend (great parts runners!) We should be near the MMVA tent (Midwest Military Vehicle Assn.)

Way too many cool Jeeps alone, even if you don't look at the Mitey Mites, M151's, HMMVW's, old iron (M-37, REO's, Half tracks etc.) The place is great. It smells like cosmoline and canvas everywhere!

Dirt Dog, I've got some pics on my web page from last year. Just go to my home page Mikes Power Page and click on the "Military Vehicles" link. I will definately update after this years show as well!

Re: Military vehicle Show, Iola, WI

If you see any M67x Jeep trucks could snap a photo or two and post them back to the fourm ?


here is what one might look like.



Crew cab FC170 truck or a Jeep Van based on the FC170

Have a good time. It sounds like fun.

Thanks

Re: Military vehicle Show, Iola, WI

I sure will, I don't recall seeing any Military FC's last year, but new stuff comes out of the woodwork all the time. Are there any specific 'detail' pics you want, or just overall 'magazine shots' (front 3/4, rear 3/4 views)?

Re: Military vehicle Show, Iola, WI

Just stuff that looks interesting to you...

I am starting my education in these trucks... I hope this will lead to ownership someday. Right now they are too tall to fit into my garage.... Step 1 bigger garage.

Todate I have seen photos of 1 restored to Lime Green and the rest are just sitting around waiting for some TLC.

The entire national registry of these trucks has 11 known trucks

3 - M676 FC170
7 - M677 FC170 crew cab
0 - M678 FC170 Van with windows
1 - M679 FC170 Ambulance (van no windows)
--------------------------------------------------------
11 documented trucks

This means that even photos are can be hard to come by.

Thanks

Jeff
