Stumbled upon this amazing piece of WWI GI equipment at the California Agriculture Museum in Woodland today... reportedly the only example known to still exist.

It’s a wonder if CAT does not have one in a museum.

There's a 10 ton M1917 Holt sitting in a bone yard about an hour from me.

Used to be lots of interesting “ vehicles” in bone yards. Back in the early 80’s was installing a machine in an engine plant in small Michigan town, short cut to plant went by a junk yard. Sitting out front next to the fence was pretty nice M-4 minus main gun and mantle. Never thought of stopping by, Bob Seagers home town had lots of outstanding places to eat and drink......
