So a guy in our new neighborhood came by last night and took me to see a couple old cars he's got while we were walking around looking at all of his old iron I kept my eye on something that was sitting in front of his garage... finally got the change to go look at it. He has a Case 648 with a D100 backhoe on it and is just letting set out there rusting away. He claims it's got a hydraulic issue that doesn't allow the front bucket to lift much weight and it won't run in high range... Of course the first thing i asked is if he was wanting to get ride of it. I mean it looks like it's in his way right? He said it was his dad's and that he'll never sell it. booo.
looked like this one but more cracks in the tires, more rust and less colorful paint:

Tell me your story of a rusting away gem...
