How big is that file to download? Should I bother trying with dialup, or better to wait until I have a high speed connection?

My gramps Howard van Driest was Experimental Engineer at Cletrac and Oliver Corporation. After the plant closed, he and my uncle started an excavating business, initially using Cletrac and Oliver Crawler tractors.

I never tried downloading from You Tube - is it possible?  Click on the link and try playing it.  It is only 51 seconds long, so it should not put too much of a strain on your dial-up.

I tried finding video clips that were used on CBS Sunday Morning on April 8, 2007.  In their ALMANAC, they covered the establishment of the WPA, and there was a nice shot of a Cletrac model W (I believe) doing some dam work.  If anyone TiVo'd that program, maybe they can clip it from there for us.
