    Default Willie, Look what you started

    After helping Willie retieve a CAT 10 on Friday, Brewzer and I decided we had better do a little CAT retrieving ourselves. Since Willie was a few miles from TratorDon's turf when he got the CAT 10 we figured why not go to Watsonville in TractorDon's turf and see what we could pick up. Brewzer got an 8C 20 and we checked out a PL 20 tailseat. Then we went back over the hill, had lunch in Gilroy, then off to San Martin (our turf) and picked up a PV15 with a blade and electric start.

    Brewzer: 8C 20, excellent under carriage and runs like a top but not so good sheet metal.

    Firecat: PV 15 with a blade and electric start.

    PS: A Clark Orchard Fork lift. We haven't decided who's going to get it. We're going to flip a coin. What a Day! Firecat

    You fellows in quake country are indeed having too much fun. Also are getting way too lucky for finding and acquiring old Yellow. I do enjoy the acquisition stories though. They make my memories of trailering mine home come alive again.

    Greg, trust me, you don't want the wheel disc. It looks like something from a Barney play set Don
