Hobart Welders: 1951 Dodge M-37

Sponsor
1951 Dodge M-37
Sponsor: Hobart, official welder
Driver: Mel Wade
Co-driver: Don Foster
Hobart has been the official welder of the Ultimate Adventure for years now, and for the second year in the row Hobart has teamed up with the highly skilled Mel Wade to create the ultimate mobile workshop. Hobart's super-cool M-37 was literally a big hit this year as he pushed the 7,500-pound monster around on the trail with the rest of the crew. His co-driver, Don Foster, provided all the expertise on the Hobart equipment anyone could ask for. Mel and Don worked well together as a support team and were invaluable on the 2010 UA.
