Invitation to the Deadeyes

I am Michael Wayne Howard, Son of Grover Wayne Howard, Deadeye

Dad passed away in 1998. I miss him very much. He was the best father a son could every wish for!

I restore military vehicles and have a working M5A1 Stuart tank, various WWII jeeps, WWII M29 Weasels and many more. If you are ever this way in Elk Horn, IA, I would love to take you for some rides in these vehicles.

Thank You for your Service to Our Country!

Michael Howard
