Thought you'd all enjoy seeing this old beast.

There are a few videos of it too but I think I will start a separate thread on them in the YouTube forum.

I just posted 4 of the videos on the other forum.

It does OK.

The last picture really shows how much they modified the fenders for tire clearance.

Thanks Otto, pretty cool!
I figured it had a model T truck rear end when I saw those wood spoke wheel rims welded to the tractor rims.
