DAL/FTW: WWII Military vehicles

Just posting to gauge interest.

I have a friend who is trying to help out an elderly lady. Her husband passed away leaving a couple of WWII vehicles, an ambulance and a command car from what I have been told. I don’t know any of the details on the vehicles. Apparently there are also uniforms, bayonets and weapons in his collection. If we have any buffs on here that are seriously interested please get in touch with me and I will put you in touch with my friend and hopefully help her friend out. It sounds a bit convoluted, however this may work out well for everyone. I personally do not know the widow, I don’t know the vehicles or any real details. Sorry.

I have contact with The Pacific War Musem in Fredricksburg. They may be interested.

Wish I had money I'd be interested in any thing like a Jeep. Good luck with the whole process.

Dave, short of posting this and arranging a contact I have nothing to do with this process. I don’t even know where it all is.

Downs I with you, I love a bit of militaria but I’m too broke to afford any.

If you run across any B-17 stuff, let me know. I have a special lady in mind.View attachment 230233
If that's your plane....heck if its not and you just know the owner....THAT is one of the coolest things ever. I can't imagine being able to fly in something with so much vintage and history for a given period in time. Being the father of three boys I can only imagine the stories that could be created with something like this in the family!

If you can get me a list of what they have and pics, I’ll pass the info onto my former boss. He’s got a sizeable collection.

If they’ve got any later vehicles (CUCV’s - specifically an ambulance M1010) I’m in the market myself

It's the CAF's, and I'm a Flight Engineer, part time wrench, and general hangar flunkie for it. I'm also heading the restoration to working status all the turrets.
Off-topic bump? Sorry.... :wave:
