RGS Goose 4 rebuild progress

If you haven't been aware, Telluride's Galloping Goose - the last of the remaining original 6 that's not yet been restored - is being restored.  There details and photos about the rebuild effort on the Ridgway Museum's site.

There's some photos and discussion of the engine in this goose on the NG Disc List lately, which is a GMC 361 from WWII vintage (surplus, and delivered new to the RGS).  Some thought these were built for WWII half-tracks, but that's not true.
