Photographs of activities by the Northern Recon Group in 1978!


Bob Thelander has his M-16 Halftrack inspected by the California Highway Patrol before getting it registered as an historical vehicle in 1978. Bob started the restoration of his halftrack in 1976 and completed it two years later in 1978. Bob also was a commercial inspector for the California Highway Patrol.

Here you see Bob Thelander pondering what it will be like to drive the streets of Oroville, California in his halftrack. In the background is the officer's patrol car. Some Northern Recon Group members were honored to ride with Bob from his home to the parades in Oroville at speeds above 45 MPH. What a smooth ride that will never be forgotten.
