There are no dealers, these are truly rare vehicles. The few private owners
have already scoured the land for parts and hand-make most of the missing
The route to a correctly and well restored CMP is neither easy or quick.

Best of Show, medium truck and CMP was taken by a vehicle that lives but 400
