Me too. No such thing as too many pictures of that one
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

If nothing else I'm always a good last resort or the guy to hold up as a bad example

Back in the 80's I subscribed to Engineers and Engines magazine. Restoring old Cat's was a big deal then and the Cat 60 was often featured. If I recall they where bar start. The first diesel was in a Cat 60, a d9900.

If your ever traveling on I-5 near Salem, Oregon, just N of Salem is the Brooks exit/ Pilot truck stop on the West side of the freeway. About a 1/2 mile west of I-5 is the Oregon Heritage museum where the "great Oregon Steam up" is held and there are several museums  including a RXR museum, antique truck museum, and antique Cats, a bunch of old restored Cats or in the restoring process,  and a working circle sawmill. Very well worth going through it. Plan for at least a couple of hours to see it all.

A dirt guy 15 miles west of me has restored a cat 60 that his dad had bought new. My old Cat 941B track loader is close to an antique. There was never a lot of dozers in my area so there's not a lot of antique ones around.
