It's a M35A1 2.5 ton military truck from c. 1965. How do I know this? I worked on it for several years doing mostly engine & drivetrain maintenance in Oakland, CA. NIMBY is a fantastic place for artists to revitalize older equipment into "Art Cars" that grace the Burning Man Festival. Because of its ability to run on almost any fuel (except aviation gasoline) this specimen has been powered by vegetable oils WITHOUT ANY modifications for over four years. Part of our Cold War legacy: to make any engine run on multifuels when fighting against enemy forces in territories that may not have specific fuels for MILSPEC engines. Snook Smith has created an exceptional "green" power based vehicle that has delighted BM participants for years!
