I grew up at the same time less than 60 miles from you. Channels 2,4, 5,7,9 and 11 out of NYC. Sandy Becker, Sonny Fox, and Chuck McCann hosted local kids shows. Silent cartoons at 0500am. Channel 9's Million Dollar Movie every week night. Good memories. We grew up at a great time to be kids.

Great memories. Bungalow Bar Ice Cream truck and TV was black 'n white too!

 

The Million Dollar Movie was a mainstay!

I can't for the life of me think of a single thing I need a Cat for on my place!!  But darned if it would not be a ton of fun!!

My brother has had IH  (one of those Gas/Diesels that busted Heads, you just wondered when not if it would) and Case Crawlers.  I can't however endorse the Red paint idea. Cat's are Yellow and should be painted Yellow.

Odd of me to say that as Yellow is about my least favorite color. It just would not be right to have someone mistake a Cat for an IH.  The Newer IH were not a bad machine though.

Go Team Yellow!   BTW, I've never seen the term "but'll" before.   :reading_the_manual:

Is that what happens just before you get a "re-but'll" ? :D   Rick

Arrived at my barn today. The CAT was a fun drive around my stone driveway.

 

Now, got to mount the dozer and do some spring time leveling, add some stone. Basically, play time!

Grandson loves the Herd of Horses but, had a heart and adopted the CAT too!

 

Now, again, losing more equipment! He does want the restore to be yellow this time!

Delivery Part 2, just left.

 

I'm thinking more "yellow" this spring! Wait till the grandsons see this!

 

I'm going to add more modified stone to the driveways and learn how to use the machine.

I am sure the grandsons'll show me how!  :dancingbanana:
