Guntruck Songs

     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:

I noticed John put this post up front – so I couldn’t resist adding more classics:

MATCHBOX:

PALADIN:

Hope you enjoy.

Respectfully, deb

Proud American

Proud American Wins!!!

Proud American GunTruck was chosen as SteelSoldiers Military Vehicle of the Year – 2014 in voting that ended yesterday. A special thanks goes to John Dodd, Ron Smith, and Frenchie who both campaigned for votes.

Proud won the MV of the Month competition last March which qualified her to run for MV of the Year 2014.

SteelSoldiers has nearly 60,000 registered members and an unknown amount of personally owned military vehicles but I’m going to guess in the two thousand range(?)

Proud American did not win on appearance alone, it was her story and that of GunTruckers in general that pulled the votes and triggered the win.

I hope you are all Proud that one of “your” trucks was selected and is still out there representing you guys!1fAP14_AuSt_70
