Marie and I were out riding around at the Buckley show on Saturday.
Heading back to our spot, we came around the end of one of the rows of tractors and there was the little crawler setting along side my Agricat.
Man was I surprised .....
I knew that Jerome was coming to the show and I thought he was bringing a Ridemaster with him.
I had no idea that he was even working on the crawler.

The photos don't do it justice. You really have to see it in person. It is a absolutely beautifull restoration.
I am really glad that I sold this to Jerome instead of some stranger on ebay..


Thanks Ray for letting have a spot to show the Kitty Track I had a great time and I am happy you liked it.
My dad and mom would like to thank you aswell they had a great time mom also said thanks for makeing my dad take her around on your RT tractor. :)

I have more pics to post but I seem I cant get them to... the photo upload butten and the others around it are grey and dont work?

That Kitty Track looks amazing Jerome! Awesome work on all of it, but the tracks are a work of art for sure! Congrats on getting it all put back together. Getting praise from Ray is a testament to the quality of the work as well! Thanks for sharing the restoration with us!

That's sweeeeet! Great job on the restore. A lot of work went into it and those new tracks in particular must have taken a lot of time. Very nice!

Great write up Jerome. I too can vouch for how nice that looks up close in person. You did a fantastic job and should be very proud of your accomplishment!

That's a very nice little rig you got there!! The powder coating looks awesome on it. Must have been pretty straight to begin with. Great job :thumbs:

I am humbled in your presence. :worshippy1:

And I feel for you on the chain. One of the first jobs I got in the machine shop as a kid was cutting links from tube for chain... one link at a time. We... or should I say they at the time, made the conveyer chains which went in the bottoms of salt spreaders.

All right as some you may know..... I picked this up from Ray last September my dad and I started restoring this December of 2011. I have not posted the pic’s I am now because I was trying to hide it from Ray so I could surprise him when the Buckley engine show came around and surprise him I did. After we arrived at Buckley we unloaded and I drove the Kitty Track for only the second time to Rays area in the show grounds. No one was there when I got there so I parked it in an opening in his area and went to register the Kitty Track. When we returned he was there and the plan I say worked.

Here some pic’s of Ray area and a little of the show.
