The second life of GMC's

Introduction

De Spin op Castricummer kermis

Nice to meet you on this site dedicated to GMC trucks of the CCKW type. I guess most of you will associate the CCKW with the Second World War. However, my own memories go back to the fairground in front of the house where I was born in 1957. In the week ahead of every second weekend of August our village was visited by a couple of CCKW's transporting the showmen's materials. As a kid I fell in love with these trucks at first sight. This site provides information on the history and technical background of the CCKW, refers to more detailed sources, shows several hundreds of historical pictures, includes a data base of circa 300 miniature scale models, and allows you to enjoy my own collection in scales of 1/87 to 1/1. Graze as much as you like but do not copy anything (pictures, text, sound) without contacting me for permission to do so!.
