Note that I have just transferred this site to it's current domain and I'm in the process of making some major updates and changes. A number of the links don't work, some pages are messed up such as not showing images, etc. Please bear with me as I get everything in good order!                  Chuck 03-03-16

   When I first posted this site in the mid '90s a search for Vintage Dodge Power Wagon might net three hits. Now there are many Power Wagon sites spanning the military Dodge Power Wagons of '46 on up, and the sweptlines of the mid '60s, where my knowledge and interest end. Generally, if the door handles don't get caught in the brush you won't find much info on it here. My intent is to share my love of these old Dodges and, hopefully, provide a little information to those who find they too are interested in these increasingly rare trucks.

In those early days you could search till your phone company dropped you, your modem fried, and your wife and dog left without finding a single Zundapp KS601 page. Things have improved rather dramatically in that regard. There are now a number of parts sources and even a Yahoo user group, although there does not generally appear to be a lot of activity, at least not specific to the KS 601. So, more parts but not great deal of info out there as yet, and you'll probably need a little German or Dutch. I hope this site helps fill part of the persistent vacuum.

I'm also going to start adding some pages on other compelling interests of mine, early vacuum tube computing and SAGE system radar among them. I have a particular interest in SAGE gap filler radars as I just coincidentally live within view of one of the perhaps three remaining basically intact examples in the country, ours residing atop our beloved Mt. Baldy, a 250' plus dune between Lake Michigan and Saugatuck-Douglas, where I live. I will put in a special request right here for any maintenance info or documentation you might know of regarding the Lewyt FST-1 Coordinate Data Transmitter and Bendix AN/FPS-14 radar. We are slowly working toward restoring our radar annex and the FST-1 is a passion of mine, having been right at the leading edge of technology when it was put into service in the mid 50's, sending radar data to the incredible AN/FSQ-7 computer via the first application of the modem outside of research. Let me also add a plug for the Saugatuck - Douglas Historical Society, a truly impressive organization for a community of our size.

My goal is both to pass along and to gather information. I'm always looking for new Dodge Power Wagon and Zundapp KS601 links and parts sources and that is also true, now, of anything SAGE related. If you know of some I've missed, or would like to make a comment or suggestion or ask a question, feel free to email me at mechanique at wmol dot com. May as well get in on the fun with all the spammers. Meanwhile, click on the menu links to the left and have a look around.

I would ask that if you should copy content from this website that you attribute it appropriately. I guess that's asserting a copyright. I have yet to swipe some tasteful background colors and/or patterns from someone else's webpage, and I've grown fond of these over the years, so...
