Good view of the "PR" as it was on display in June 2004 at the gathering of Vietnam Gun Trucks in Ft. Eustis, VA. The "PR" had driven about 2000 miles to get to the gathering, well worth it!


This is the only picture we know of showing the original "PR" Gun Truck in Vietnam. If you have any information about this picture, this truck, or the crew members please contact us at the address shown on the bottom of the page

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, the engine continued to run on FIVE cylinders until the astonished driver shut it down, although it was not pretty and certainly not safe.

A turbo diesel cab & chassis has been acquired for the "Psychotic Reaction"! Work is ongoing to get "new" (lightly used) truck completely road ready before transferring the Gun Box from old chassis to new. New pictures will be coming when this happens!


In the meantime, we're offering these cool t-shirts as a fundraiser to help get the PR back on the road!
