Dick Wolfsie takes a ride in antique military machines


AM WITH JIM CARTER, AND I WAS HERE THREE OR FOUR YEARS AGO. JIM: YES YOU WERE. WOLFSIE: AND I DON’T USUALLY GO BACK TO A PLACE UNLESS THERE’S SOMETHING NEW. JIM: AND WE HAVE THAT. WOLFSIE: SO, AND WE DO HAVE, WELL, WE HAVE SOMETHING OLD. JIM: OH YES. WOLFSIE: THAT’S NEW. JIM: YES. WOLFSIE: THAT’S RIGHT. JIM, TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU COLLECT, IN GENERAL. JIM: GENERALLY SPEAKING, I COLLECT ANTIQUE HEAVY CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT. CRANES, BULLDOZERS, THAT TYPE OF THING. WOLFSIE: WHEW, YEAH. JIM: AND RECENTLY I HAVE KIND OF GOTTEN INTO THE GREEN MILITARY MACHINES. WOLFSIE: OK. JIM: AND THAT’S WHAT WE’RE GOING TO LOOK AT TODAY. WOLFSIE: AND THAT’S WHAT’S IN THERE? JIM: YES. WOLFSIE: SO HOW MUCH ROOM DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR HOME HERE IN ZIONSVILLE TO KEEP A LOT OF THEM, OR DO YOU JUST KEEP SWITCHING THEM OUT? JIM: I EITHER SWITCH THEM OUT, A NUMBER OF THE MACHINES THAT I HAVE ARE SCATTERED AROUND THE COUNTRY AT VARIOUS SHOWS. WOLFSIE: OH REALLY? JIM: BECAUSE IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE TO KEEP MOVING THEM AROUND. WOLFSIE: AH. JIM: THIS WAY I’VE BEEN GIVEN STORAGE SPACE WHERE WE CAN KEEP THEM OUT OF THE WEATHER, AND THEN I CAN GO OVER WHEN THE SHOWS ARE ON, AND I CAN ACTUALLY PUT THEM ON AS DEMONSTRATIONS. WOLFSIE: WHILE WE’VE BEEN TALKING, WE’VE BEEN LOOKING AT SOME OF THE OTHER ITEMS THAT YOU HAVE COLLECTED OVER THE YEARS, BUT CAN WE OPEN THE DOOR NOW, AS WE WATCH THESE PICTURES, AND SEE WHAT’S INSIDE HERE? JIM: SURE. WOLFSIE: OK, SO LET’S OPEN THIS UP, AND WE’RE SEEING, THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT JIM…JIM, DO YOU MIND IF I JUST SAY SOMETHING TO YOUR WIFE? JIM: PLEASE DO. WOLFSIE: GOOD MORNING BONNIE. BONNIE: GOOD MORNING DICK. WOLFSIE: DO YOU WISH HE COLLECTED STAMPS? BONNIE: I DO WISH HE WOULD COLLECT STAMPS. WOLFSIE: (LAUGHS) IT WOULD BE A LITTLE EASIER, WOULDN’T IT? BONNIE: HUNDREDS OF BOOKS OF STAMPS. WOLFSIE: HUNDREDS OF BOOKS OF STAMPS WOULD BE EASIER THAN THIS. IN THE NEXT SEGMENT WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THIS. JIM: OK. WOLFSIE: AND YOU TOLD ME THERE’S EVEN A CHANCE WE COULD TAKE A RIDE. JIM: OH YES. WOLFSIE: REALLY? JIM: YEP. WE’RE ALL SET TO GO. WOLFSIE:
