That's a really neat picture. Can you tell us anything more about the excavator. I've never seen anything like that.

Yes, that's my dad and my sister in the pic. I don't know anything about the excavator, I can't really tell how it worked from the pic but it was probably electrically operated. I know that it had the 4 main movements on 2 joysticks. Other then that I don't know anything about it. I bet you could make one and use electric actuators then have it at shows for little ones. Don cambell comes to mind...

Thanks Ryan! Wish your Dad was still with us, as I'm sure he'd have been a GTt nut himself. From what I've seen, he was a heck of a Dad!

Thanks Daniel. And he was. He wasn't much of a computer person, in fact, he hated computers and anything to do with them. He never really did anything other then go on craigslist but, he would have loved this site.

They certainly didn't have anything like that when I was a kid! Of course when I was a kid they were just inventing the wheel.

Cool Pic Ryan. :)
