Is this begging to be modeled or what? I ran across this old girl in Sparks Nevada.

I'd would say its an old Adams motor grader, just by the position of the engine and the look of the rigging. I'm no expert but I'm fairly certain the Caterpillar/Russell Motor Patrol graders all had their engines behind the cab.

FWIW, here is an Adams. http://www.pada.ca/lib/images/2/1750.jpg

...and yes, it would make a very cool model.
