    Great site you have here sir. I thought that I was the only one around into the old dozers. You have posted some very interesting pictures. A few I’ve not seen anywhere else. I am currently working in Afghanistan and we are still using many D-7Gs here along with some other Cat stuff of the same vintage. Thanks for the great site.
    Ken

    • Ken,
      Glad you like it. If you any pictures of old iron you want me to post, email them to me at rvasda@comcast.net and I’ll give you photo credits.
