The second life of GMC's
Many of the more than 500,000 built CCKW's have been saved and find
themselves in the good hands of collectors. In The Netherlands several owners
are member of Keep them
Rolling, an association directed to the conservation of WOII
vehicles. Private firms also cherish their GMC as a kind of tribute to the start
of their enterprises in the 50-70's. To give you an impression of what a
restored CCWK should look and sound like, Johan Edelhausen (www.ww2vehiclesvideos.nl)
supplied me with a clip. Enjoy!.
