Over Labor Day weekend 2004, the "PR" made another road trip from the east coast to Wheaton, IL. Unfortunately the last 30 miles had to be behind a tow truck. The "PR" threw a rod thru the side of the engine block, and could no longer develop enough power to move safely on the highway. Yes, amazing but true, the engine continued to run on FIVE cylinders until the astonished driver shut it down, although it was not pretty and certainly not safe.

The PR Guntruck got back on the road with a major transplant operation. Here's what it looks like to lift the gunbox off the chassis.

The very next day the PR Guntruck was doing a static display with a few friends. Quite a turnout; military trucks, WWII and all eras since.

Next three pictures are in-country pictures of the Second-generation "Psychotic Reaction" built on a 5 ton chassis; presumably sometime after the 1st "Psychotic Reaction" was disabled or destroyed.

Any information as to the people, dates, or places of these photos would be appreciated!

Next photo is of the excellently restored "Ace of Spades" by Sammy as it was being displayed at Iola, WI Aug. 2004;
