  • Twenty-Eight before I saw this one
    Didn't know they built a Twenty-Eight before I saw this one.
  • There's something in there
    There's something in there!
  • There is the engine for it
    Then the feller says, 'There is the engine for it.'

Ted H. Stein, 412 W. Second Street, Streator, Illinois 61364 sent this series of photos documenting the discovery of a Caterpillar Twenty-Eight. Ted writes:

'I visited a repair shop near Fort Madison, Iowa, late last summer, and the owner mentioned an old crawler out back. I went out and took several pictures, with the idea that maybe it would look good in the magazine.

'What might be great is if someone could acquire and restore both of these discoveries. Might make a great pair of 'CATs'.'
