Got it! Haven't read article yet. Wasn't aware it was from someone here. I myself hadn't heard of a Torq label before, even after being on the Case forums. Guess I'll have to read up and find out what that is about! Congrats!

ya, I was under advisement from a couple of guys that I was NOT to touch it...any attempt to restore it or if I work it anymore I would risk 'killing its value...they basically forced me into the hobby...LOL (Mastifflawyer {Jack Penwarden} and 190forklift {Steve Guider}) but in all sincerity - these guys have helped me so much and I am indebted to them...LOL literally indebted to them ...If any of you guys know em, they are great people!!!

It's more like the rare tractor made a collector out of him.
She was his first. :thumbs:

Can you remember what you used to do with your free time (and money) Jim? :smilewink:

Oh you mean the time when we were working 8 hours a day 5 days a week with NO overtime... (fixing and selling cars to help finance wifes school) vs 12 hours a day 6 days a week? Now there is less time, and somehow less money...LOL

And it was Steve and Jack that made the collector...(basically if I kept working the torq then...) JK and a great bunch of guys in this great forum! GTTalk is the best!!!

Photography has always been my hobby so it kinda fit this real well, I enjoy taking pics and making movies which are appreciated here on GTTalk...so it is mutually beneficial...win win for everyone! Now I look forward to the one day a week when I get to work on the tractors, or cars or whatever it is...:-)
