Hey guys check out my new beauty, it is a 70, I love it!!!!!!!!!!! I am already polishing it. I will promise you that I will take it to shows! It really needs new tires, painting done, and a battery. It came with a mower deck.I need a new seat. And the best part is, it is the right size for me!!
I got it from Kenny ( Littledeere). Thank you so much Kenny.

Thanks,

jdelfette


P.S - I had fun at the Dover Tractor Show yesterday and today!

That's a nice little tractor there, and like you said, nothing better than one that "fits" you! Remember, being you brought up the paint.......you can paint her red! Yours would then stand out & above among all that green stuff your Dad & Brother have!

I love those old designs that looked like tractors and not like new Volkswagen Beetles that are designed to please wives of tractor buyers!:D

Congrats on the tractor Elfette. You may want to take a look at this link where another member takes a JD 70 and turns it into a beautiful custom tractor that is a different colour - but not red! http://gardentractor...ge__hl__ jd 70

Congrats on your new tractor Shayna! That's a great looking 70 that you've got now! It's a fine candidate for a restore! (thanks from me too littledeere!)
Don't forget to keep us posted on your progress and tell us all that you've learned! Most of all, enjoy the project and the time you spend with your Dad! God bless!

I'm sure with some help from your dad it will look as good as new, he has the touch to make things like it look nice again.
Glad you had fun at the show hope to see you there again next year maybe your dad will be able to bring some tractors next year
lets hope so.

OH and your very welcome{jdelfette} I think its in good hands I told your dad if you need parts check with me I may have what is needed
