2008 Charlie Martin's Truck

While sitting around, it was quite a surprise to see this vehicle going down the road. This truck belongs to Mike Martin, and formerly, to his father, Charlie Martin. According to Mike Martin, "It took a couple of years, working on it once and a while, to get it to this."

According to the stories that circulate around the island, Charlie Martin drove this truck to the upper penninsula across the ice. Whether a true story or not, it is a great story, and now we have the vehicle restored to see in condition that it can be driven. Maybe we'll see it in the 4th of July parade????
