I turned my A3 in for an M1IP in the mid eighties. Around 2001 I had to dispatch my 2 M88's for range detail pulling 60's out storage down range 85 at Ft Dix. My Recovery teamed called me about an A3 with my name on the TC hatch. I drove out to Range 85 and met up with the 88's. After cutting the locks on the loaders handle I looked inside. Her LRF and M21 and TTS were gone but everything else was there, We hooked a slave cable, drained the water separators. Primed the fuel lines and after only fifteen minutes we attempted a hot start. Pure thick grey smoke poured out of the grilles, good sign she was getting fuel as the exhaust covers rattled she started getting compression and then it happened, she rattled to life! All those years sitting down range. She now sits in front of my American Legion Post.
