Nicely made model of a North Dakota made machine!

Years (Decades) ago I was through the factory at Gwinner ND. I also knew Louis Keller one of the brothers that actually invented the Bobcat”.
I have seen the original “Bobcat” the Keller family bought it back wen they became affluent enough o do it.
