I am getting older, but the age doesn't bother me at all! It's the arthritis, diabetis, CRS, high cholesterol,.................................. :bigrofl:

But I am doing fine, my legs still kicking, and every now & then get to play with my GT's! :thumbs:

Going by Daniel's definition I guess I am an Ole Timer, but my wife usually substitutes something else for the "Timer" part. :o

Somehow most of this doesn't apply to me LOL. Heck, my newest GT (1988) is still older than me LOL. I don't collect tractors FROM my youth, I collect them DURING my youth, in preparation of being an "Old Timer" one day, which by OCH's definition... is NEVER! :bigrofl:

Ok, enough fun with that, just imagine, most of my tractors will turn 100 years old while I'm alive, that's a scary thought guys. A lot of you guys grew up around and with the old iron, I have to stock up because everything will just get harder to find when I'm an old timer, especially in a society that is throw away...

I welcome any young person that wants to get into the hobby, because That's several more tractors saved. I just hope all of you "Old Timers" have your wills in order to give your collections to those that will respect and enjoy them for years to follow you... On a happy note, most of you "Old Timers" [got or get] to retire, and I fear I will get to retire the day after I die!! lol

Sad but true,..

Not very many, most wait for it to sell at ''antique value'' or just don't care and throw it in the scrapper for pocket change, some sell out because they have no one to pass it on to, all this i have seen, painfull to watch kids fight over how much it is worth on the market, very painfull,...

Hmm, i never really collected to think of 'antique value" - basically just collected because the tractors were offered, were cheep and some were super easy to fix - just sort of got out of hand. Most of mine arent that collectible tho. Basically i look at it as recycling - instead of going for scrap- im resurecting them.

Never really have given any thought to what ill do with my fleet when i do eventually grow too old to tinker - i dont have any kids, possibly see if my nieces or nephews might want any .

I do know my 'mod projects' wont be sold off tho, not for saftey's sake, just so they wouldnt be misused - more then likely would be either parted out and or scrapped.
