Joe Kritzer's dream has been to own a Kal Trac airport tug, since his father drove one 36 years ago for Western Airlines. He bought a 1977 tug from Warwick Manufacturing, Brunswick, New Jersey in September 2021. He has been restoring it since then. It is not completely finished as of August 2022 but It looks great. The engine is a Ford in-line 6-cylinder 300 Industrial and the transmission is an FMX Ford. Western Airlines were a buyer of Kal Trac tugs from the Kalamazoo Manufacturing Company. Alas, as no paperwork survived from the company so we don't know how many tugs were sold or who bought them.
