Welcome!
Nice picture. I really like it when folks put in action shots or take a minute to take a nice picture. Sometimes the tractor-among-other-stuff pictures get a little old, and hard to see. Though I've been guilty of it myself.

Nice Ford. I used to work there, but not way back then.

:welcometogttalk: Welcome to the group lgtnorm! I think you will find this a friendly and helpful place to hang out. Your Ford looks like it was doing a fine job of clearing out the blackberries. Thanks for the picture and once again welcome to the site!

Welcome, lgtnorm! Nice 165 you have there. Glad it is doing a good job for you. Getting to be quite a few of that era Fords on here, which is really great to see.

Norm, Welcome to GTtalk, Glad you joined us. I really like that model Ford, they always reminded me of the 9000 series farm tractor and I always thought that was one of Ford's best looking models. Thanks for posting a action shot of her at work.

Hello and welcome to GTtalk, Right glad you found this forum.

Good looking old Ford ya got there. Wild blackberry bushes got some mean thorns in them. How did your tires make out running thru them?

There was a few wild roses in there too, they are worse than the blackberries. No problems with either.
