    I've seen plenty of homemade tractors around these parts and I was wondering if anyone has ever done a homemade bulldozer? I know popular mechanics used to sell kits but Im sure if someone were realy creative they could make one from spare parts etc.. So has anyone ever built a bulldozer? Know of any good websites?

    Dude! My wife thinks I'm crazy but I have plans (in my head) of doing just that when I get my new shop built. I have seen a miniature dozer at a tractor show that was homemade worked really good.

    My wife cringes every time I bring home another rusted "Treasure" aka "junk" to add to my collection!!

    BTW the first 6 chapters of Joshua are some of my favorites!

    That's on my list right after I complete my space ship and my time machine.

    Joshua? Did I miss something? You mean the book?

    Well, it's one of a collection of books, called the Bible. ;) Great, great story!! I highly recommend it. Have a wonderful day! :)

    p.s. If the time machine works, can we just take off say 5 or 10 years? I don't want to go back and do EVERYTHING over. Just keep the wisdom at a younger age, dontcha know? :D
