Those wooden .50 Crates make good dunnage. The Cletrac used to be a familiar sight across the street at Dow Field until around 1952.

Hello Thierry.

Thanks...The HAR is so rare, it's almost achieved mythical status. I Googled and came up with "Houston Area Realtors". :)

Ranger...I think some survive in Australia. Doesn't seem there is much discussion of them in the US.

Would not be surprised if none survived due to the limited number. Spares would have always been scarce.
