(I'd post photos if I knew how.)

Edit: The 1980 1644 is on the left. I'm using my ipad tonight. I'll add the pic of the 1643 in the morning :)

Default Re: who was the first owner of your cat?

As i Know from my research there are 3 or 4 Snow Tracs in Hellas.
I don't Know if that ST4 in the Foto is mine, but i remember well, when i was a kid back in late of 70s and early of 80s, that the Electricity Company had to used one of them in my town especially in the winter. The central office of the Electricity Company was to close to my neighborhood, and i remember well this ST4 in the foto, inside the garage.
Recently i had to make some interviews from some persons when they worked in the Electricity company back in 70s and 80s and are still alive and they used the ST4 in the winter. The stories with the ST4 in the heavy winter in the past, are very interesting. Maybe i have to write an article about the ST4 in the foto.
This is the only foto that i have, and it was given to me by the son of the driver

Nikos.

13th of September 2011.
Somewhere in a yard in the central Macedonia in Hellas.
The previous owner was a Truck dealer, and the ST4 was sitting in his yard with some other truck equipments.
