Thanks for posting that Jody. :fing02:

It was from our local show last year and one of my favorites. If only I'd remembered to take my second big memory card for my camera, I would have many more photos. The one above and the 20 some others I took can be seen here:

I posted a link also in the photography forum.

My grandfather had one of those critters back in the mid to 50's. But he put a straight bull dozer blade on it. I remember pushing snow as a kid with it. When he died the tractor was sold off as part of the estate...... broke my heart.

Oh the memories that picture brings back

A fella I went to High School with restored his father-in-law's Oliver/Cletrac crawler. It had been outside, not running for over 20 years, but to see it today, it looks brand new. He had to "unstick" the engine, and do a frame up restoration on it. A labor of love as he will never get his time back out of it, but it's wonderful that it got saved from the scrap heap.
