    Just before thanksgiving I was reviewing the military vehicles on eBay and came across a Bantam T3C in rough shape. It was nearby, so I decided to bid, first bid was $125. Not high bidder. Ok $10 more.

    Crap I won. :)

    I'd buy that for a c-note too. Doesn't look too bad.

    Partial restore and use a daily trailer. Going to replace the floor add a tailgate, new rear panels and tires.

    You only need adult supervision when you meet or exceed the 4-figure threshold. Good score! [​IMG]

    You did good. No supervision necessary.

    So on the way back from picking up the trailer, my brother wanted to be lazy. We thought we would try towing and see how it went. Turns out we made the morning just a little bit extra exciting for some of the drivers following us....

    Needless to say, no drivers were harmed during this adventure and we promptly pulled over and loaded the trailer into the back of his Chevy pickup.

    Thoughts on replacement tires/sizes would be appreciated. I would like to keep the original 16" wheels, but replacement tires seem expensive.
