NEED A GUNTRUCK DECAL FOR MY VEHICLE

DIDN’T KNOW IF ANYBODY COULD HELP ME OUT AS WELL AS OTHER GUNTRUCKERS.
WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHERE OR WHO I COULD ORDER FROM TO HAVE ONE ON MY OWN PERSONAL VEHICLE, I AM SURE OTHER GUNTRUCKERS WOULD LIKE THE SAME.
I SERVED ON THE KING COBRA AS GUNNER AND WOULD LIKE SOMETHING MADE UP WITH THE KING COBRA, JUST ASKING FOR MYSELF AND EVERYBODY ELSE, ANYONE THAT HAS INFORMATION THAT WOULD BE GREAT FOR ALL US GUNTRUCKERS AND GUNNERS,
THANKS A BUNCH, LATER FRENCHIE

HAIRCUT

Guntruck Songs

Thought I’d add another tune — it may sound familiar…

I couldn’t find a song about King Cobra — but here’s a familiar one you might remember… “Hey Little Cobra.”  

Adding one for John, his Mustang, AND Chuck Berry!-)  ENJOY!

As I was listening to my tunes, I couldn’t help but share a few that may bring a smile or two…

ACE OF SPADES:

PLAYBOYS:

ROAD RUNNER:

BLACK WIDOW:

RUNNIN’ BARE:

Both these versions are great; I’m guessing the “Runnin Bare” version from 1970 was the one named on the Guntruck!

And who doesn’t remember this 1959 original, “Running Bear…”

RUNNING BEAR:

 (A LOT of good music came from the ’60s.  Dusted off this one thinking there might have been a few guys back in another world that might have had this song on their mind…)

SATAN’S LITTLE ANGEL (better known to many as Satans Li’l Angel) 

(Smiling… And for your all time favorite listening pleasure…)

WILD THING:

DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS!..

PSYCHOTIC REACTION!..;-)

THE CREEPER:

TheCreeperDCcomic

MATCHBOX:

PALADIN:

Doesn’t take too much to get me listening to those great songs of the ’60’s…John reminded me of another song by The Kinks (and another Guntruck!)

SET ME FREE:

Hope you enjoy.

Respectfully, deb
