WWI Vehicles.
Watch the driver steer to get around the first turn.
Check out the radiator on that T!

Very cool John! Thanks for posting.

I'm no expert, but isn't the crawler on the trailer a Cat 60, or depending on the year, maybe a Best?

John, I hope you don't mind. I copied your link and shared it with some friends. That was a great thing to watch.

The crawler is Holt a competitor of Best. In the mid 20's Best and Holt combined to form Cat

But is it a Holt Caterpillar crawler?

Cool video! Is that first unit what you would call a "push-me, pull-ya"? Missed the rad on the T, went too fast...have to watch it again. Love the steam sounds and whistle.

Mike,
If I remember correctly Holt Manufacturing Co. And C.L. Best Tractor Company were competitors, each manufacturing tracklayer equipment in the early 20th century. In 1925 they merged to become Caterpillar Tractor Co. So, there's no such thing as a "Holt Caterpillar". Over the years Holt, Best, Caterpillar, and others all made tracklayer equipment.

I hope this helps.
