As the subject line states...here are four Ms!


40s "big M" project truck seen at dusk after SDC Hamilton meeting last month...I had been to this location before, completely missed this M that time, and nearly so this time too!

46 M5 at Rymal Road cruise, Sun Aug 2...now sporting stakes atop the box...every time I see this one there's been another change!

And here's the "big M" flatbed I'd spied on Hwy#6 north of Hamilton a few weeks back; finally got back this past Wednesday and got close enough to grab this telephoto "spy" shot. Pretty complete-looking truck. Hope to get more pix sometime from closer range...it's possible I know the owner.

That big flatdeck looks interesting - maybe still in use?? ;)

The visor on the flat deck and the stock "dental mirrors on sticks" look just right [8D]

Mark/Dick--

The flatbed M has been in the same spot for a month or more (note the "Native Plants Display" all around it!)...wish I could've got right up to it for more pix, I think I could've got some very evocative views. This "spy" view will have to do for now.

If the truck's owner is who I think it is, this M is slated for a longterm rebuild to pristine original stock condition.

Does this one happen to belong to a member by the name of Wreford Nix?[?]?

Nope...the deep-green M5 is one of a trio of spotless Studes belonging to Jan and Shirley Kus (SDC Hamilton members). Not sure, of course, about who might have owned the truck previously...
