As we moved into Englewood Colorado in 1958 and my father went to work at the Littleton Martin company located in Waterton Canyon i became vary interested in the rocketry programs he was a part of..I had seen vary unusual vehicles carrying rockets between two tractors on a lowboy type bed situated between them. The vehicle was painted in the military AF blue. Both cabs front and rear set hi in order to navigate the streets as they shipped the missile to its destination to be loaded for air transport. My curiosity fed my interests in keeping abreast of the space program from then on. Dad didn't talk much do to security situations but non the less i watched the news. At the age of 15 back then it was amazing to watch. i will inquire of you any information on that ground vehicle. I would love to build a model of one.
