Recently there have been a few posts showing the progress some of you are making with T's that mount a machine gun.

I recently watched a program on The History Channel that had a segment on George Patton. According to the presentation Old Blood and Guts actually put together the first of these armed cars. It was stated that he did this in 1917 during an expedition against Pancho Villa. Unfortunately, there was no mention of the type of car used.

Can anybody confirm or deny the veracity of this information. I see flaws, but it could still be substantially true. And, if it's true, what kind of car did he use?

Dodges, apparently.
