Caterpillar C12 Powered Hot Rod "Caterpillar Buggy"
Have you ever wondered why difference is so remarkable? Why we pay attention to things that are slightly or heavily different from other things?
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra says Jimmy Johnson and today we show you the extraordinary with that little extra. The video we chose specially for you to check out demonstrates a very rare custom built which will mesmerize you with the way it looks. It is a Caterpillar Hot Rod built by hot rod enthusiast and accomplished custom builder Snapper Schomaker. He says "I wanted something that was a little different" about this excellent piece of machinery that he calls as the "Caterpillar Buggy". We can confidently say that this is "different". When you see this vehicle driving towards you or even when you see it through your screen, you will notice what this difference is. The Caterpillar Buggy is composed of 10-speed Eaton Fuller manual transmission, 425hp Caterpillar C12 Diesel engine, and a part of the frame of a 1996 International 9200 tractor. Schomaker took all these parts and combined them into one cool 1928 Studebaker Commander. He then installed the grille of a vintage Cat 966 wheel loader paired with the headlights of an old Cat 631 scraper. The Diesel engine mill has been customized with a special 3-piece exhaust manifold, Banks twin ram air intakes, a heavy duty valve body, a cold air intake, and turbo silencer ring. That's a lot of modification.
