Will, Congrats on the new baby! I bet you are still bubbling from excitement. So where are you sleeping tonight, in bed, or out in Massey Hall?

Congrats of getting you and the tractor home safely. I know you're smiling from ear to ear. Can't wait to see the restore on this one. Don't forget to activate the new security system on Massey Hall before you turn in for the night.

Well, the big day finally came. Congrats Will on finally landing the ELF home safe and sound. I must say it's a very strong looking little tractor. Thanks for making this unique purchase a really fun time for all of us. The Elf Ears on the crate were over the top funny Will. For some reason I thought the Elfs were painted all yellow. I guess it will fit in with both the Execs and the number series Masseys. Sort of the cousin from Europe so to speak.

Congrats. Will! Glad you both made it home safe and sound! Very cool tractor! It's going to be a fun project. How about two sets of decals, one German for the tractor and another for a display board that most folks can read? Time to go study the pics some more!
The weight is about what my Ford LGT 16 is!

Congrats on the ELF there pal. Too bad I haven't been on in a while, Would have loved to help you out in the initial stages cause my wife is Danish, was born there and moved here when younger, speaks the language and has lots of family back in Copenhagen and surrounding areas. I talk with her cousin's husband all the time from there.
Glad it worked out and can't wait to see the finished project....
