Although not crucial for a trail buildup, if you're looking for an old MB, GPW, M-38, M38A1, or other military vehicle to restore, pay attention to the dash, brass data plates, and other hard-to-find items like glovebox doors, jerrycan holders, and so on. Chopped, cut, and butchered panels are a bummer to repair or replace because the aftermarket parts are rarely of the same thickness and quality as the originals. Likewise, reproduction brass data plates will lack the proper patina and are expensive to purchase. If you find a complete example like Don Allen's M38A1 (pictured), keep your enthusiasm under your hat and try to point out the vehicle's faults to the seller, rather than yelling out, "Wow, cool! I scored on this one!"
