bear is that the one that you had to build a fire under and jack up with all the frozen dirt stuck on the tracts?

Cat 60

You wanted them Catapillers really bad didn't you? Are you going to do a total restoration, or just put them in good running condition?

Show or play?

I used to occasionally drive an old D2. I think vintage 1935. Are the 60s lots bigger. They don't seem so, but I drove it 30 years ago.

The older I get all the things from my younger years get bigger, better, faster, more powerful!

the 60's are a lot bigger i have a 47 d2 as well as a 38 rd7 the 60 is a 25 or 26 as near as we can figure. it will be mostly for play to heavy to haul around to shows. i need to find the right steering levers for it yet then clean it up and reapaint it
