Those things back then had the engine way in the back under that rear hump
Interesting. All the models I have ever seen had the engine in front. Never saw a rear engine version myself.
I HAVE heard of twin engine models that have powerplants in both the front and back (push-pull scrapers), but have never seen one....Maybe that's what you saw.
I did mislabel my vehicle though. These are actually called "Scrapers", or sometimes "Earth Movers".
THIS is a true road grader...Guess I was more sleepy then I thought last night when I named it. Ah well...I don't think anyone will mind.
...this thing is just dying for black with flames, a big blower motor back there, some custom wheels...
Make one heck of a monster truck, eh? I once saw a parked car that had accidentally been crushed by one, and I swear it wasn't any taller than 6-8 inches! Bigfoot, eat yer heart out!
