Currently on display at the 

National U.S.Armed Forces Museum 

in Houston, Texas.


The Widow Maker is a replica of the original truck which served in the Vietnam I Corps Area in support of US Army and US Marine Corps actions.  Using original photographs provided by both the crew and by the Historian for the National Dusters, Searchlights, and Quads Association, the truck serves as a memorial to those men and their families who served in Vietnam.

Currently searching for 1960's Caterpillar D7D or D7E for History Fanatics' Rome Plow project.

 

We have located two M123 Prime Movers in Texas!  Both need extensive restoration work.  We are currently trying to source the 14.00x24 tires (we need 12!).
More information coming!

History Fanatics is hard at work trying to keep history alive.  We are currently researching multiple vehicles to restore, in addition to the current restorations.

Keep checking back to see what we have accomplished or to give a few words of encouragement.
