I am a retired Cat salesman, having spent 37 years with a Caterpillar dealer, Tenco, in the Sacramento area.

I spent the first 13 years as a mechanic and worked on all the early gas Caterpillars.

As a salesman for Tenco we took customers to Peoria, Illinois, in the winter to visit the factory.



In 1981 on a trip to the factory I got into a conversation with a neighboring customer from Redding. We talked about old tractors and gas engines. He said he had a Thirty tractor that he wanted to restore some day. We exchanged business cards and that was the last I heard from him.

In May of 1995 I got a call from him asking if I would be going to the Anderson Gas Engine Show. He wanted to get rid of the Thirty as he wasn't doing anything with it. I met him at the show and he took me out to his place to look at the Thirty and other items.
