in 1968 a panzer 1107 was $600 dollars, without mower or any other attachments. A 36in mower was $144 and a pto clutch was $50. The average car in 68 was $3000 today it is $30,000. So when u bought a panzer in 68 it was like buying an $8000 tractor today

That's an interesting set of facts! Thanks for posting them! I did some fact checking and I used this: Click Here It's an inflation calculator offered by the U.S. Dept. of Labor and it utilizes the CPI or Consumer Price Index. I plugged in the original $794 that you'd have spent on the Panzer in 1968 and it yielded a "today's cost" of $5171.61! That's a substantial investment even today!

That is very interesting, I often think about costs of yesterday verses today. But I have never tried to really compare them.

I have a snowplow for mine, too. Someone give me $7,000 for it and it's theirs.

Otherwise... it will stay my baby.
