Carter has recently gotten into green military machines. He also explained that since he has several unique vehicles, he only keeps a handful of them at his home in Zionsville.

“A number of the machines that I have are scattered around the country at various shows. Because it’s too expensive to keep moving them around,” Carter said. “This way I’ve been given storage space where we can keep them out of the weather, and then I can go over when the shows are on, and I can actually put them on as demonstrations.”
