Damn. I am in Findley OH for the Armed Forces Day military show with our Lynx and one of our M901s. I was looking forward to WWII weekend also.

I believe it is George Debonis. He owns M5 Stuart "Nasty Girl", M4 Sherman "Bals", a halftack, scout car, and M8 Armored car I believe and more. He is always at Battle for the Airfield in Stow.

The Hetzer is either from Collings or a private collector in Maine.

I know Collings has a replica 251 and Bren UC, could be them.

Sorry guys!!

Silvio - any idea what other stuff will be at Findlay? I've visited the website and attendee details are hard to track down.

Thanks,
VB

This is my first year but my grandfather has been before. From his info, photo gallaries, and event reviews. In 2014 halftracks (various models), a running and driving LVT4, M578, Weasels, Kettenkrad, and german stuff. Usually there is a M114 or 2 also.

I know for a fact there will be a Huey flying, but that is it for this year.

If you do come, I will give you both guided tours of both vehicles, in and out. Also, the infamous David Doyle will be there with his book stand. I am usually broke whenever I leave his both, lol.

If you are planning to attend, feel free to email me at m901a1tow@ gmail.com

Thanks.
