Default New Guy from New Mexico with "Fever"

Hi All, My name is Howard, I came from Michigan where most metal is rusted pretty bad when left out. I have been in New Mexico for 12 years and the fever is getting intense from all the old cars and trucks out in the fields, yards, and in the mountains for 70 years and are in solid shape. exhaust bolts still come apart and can be reused!!! I have acquired some very interesting projects over the past several years. My latest find is a 1916 GMC. It needs a lot of help due to vultures robbing most of the engine and radiator to sell for scrap money. Trying to identify the exact year and put the history together. It still has olive green paint on it which could mean it was a military flatbed truck, hard rubber on wood spoke wheels with worm drive rear end. a continental engine "N" dated 10-18-16 3 3/4. Only the crankcase is left on the truck. The body and fenders and chassis are in great shape. I will restore this one.
I have 3 antique tractors, 38 oliver 99, 36 JD AR on steel, 19 Case 10-18, and a 50 AC WD that is not an antique (I drove one like that on a farm when I was a kid so what does that make me?)I enjoy tractor shows and participating with my tractors.
Looking forward to participating in this site. Looks like a lot of great info and resources and great people together.


Howard
