We have a new member who was in the 669th TC and on The Hawk. He remembers these guntrucks being in 669th and wants to know what happened to the 669th after 1968 and how these trucks got to the 523rd TC. May some guntruckers from this time can help here.

Ed (mutt_kahuna), our latest members military group is building Madam, Pele. He is looking for anyone who served in the unit and crew members that served on Madam, Pele. Some other guntruck owners may want to post some advice about building a Guntruck. Pics from driver submitted by John Brown.

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:
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…”
(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…)
DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS!..
Hope you enjoy.
Had the Daughter of Darkness out for her last trip for the year, attending the Wounded Warriors Project Car Show at the Fall Festival in town. Beautiful Fall day. Had over a hundred kids climbing around the truck and several vets, including VN, Korea and peacetime stopped by to talk.
I recently came in contact with a guy whos brother was a driver on Big Kahuna. He was in the 512th from 68-69. His brother is trying to get more info from him to try and help him adjust about his time in Vietnam. He was hoping that some of his buddies could help his brother out.
