Plowing with Caterpillar tractors. At 4:00 it looks like a homemade wood V-plow.

That same wooden plow just plows right into telephone poles and bounces off them as they shake back and forth. Crazy!

That's pretty rock and roll. I like the human weights keeping the plow down, full employment!

I haven't seen it with that pickup aboard which has a color I despise. :vomitblu:

Is that Bianchi green or Tiffany blue?

I can only imagine how many sales Bianchi lost based on color alone.

I call it, what-the-fuck-were-you-thinking-did-the-paint-chip-not-clue-you-in-to-how-much-that-color-sucks.


I likes the wing plows with the chain fall to adjust the height. With cat-tracs the roads may not have been paved outside of town and the plow didn't scrape down to the road surface. When I was a kid they would leave an inch or less then sand it to save wear and tear on the pavement and plow.

Whatever you do, don't google school bus tractor trailer unless you want to see a bunch of accident photos.

Yeah, if you're going to do that, why not leave more bus, and have a nice living space back there?

Oooooooo shiny!




So pretty!

I've dealt with the cup style oil filter like in the V-12, what a freakin mess.

A guy sent me an email saying,"I love that V-12 but don't know what I'd do with it" I sent him these. :D

There's this. (from the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing)

It's in the bottom picture of that post, from my family's 2010 vacation to Florida.

Those Allison engines were a dime a dozen in the '50s and '60s, so a lot of speed freaks built cars with them. They were seen in race cars, land speed record car, boats, tractors, and other odd ball applications. The used motors were cheap, but building a car to handle the weight and driveline to hold the torque, was expensive.
