Today, my brother was getting very confused when I was trying to talk to him about what I was doing. Unfortunately, he can't keep up with all of the years. So, I can't address them by the year like I do on the site forums. He said I should number them, so I did!

1) '75 1614
2) '72 1614
3) '64 Power King (more info soon)
4) '56 Power King
5) '65 Power King

They are numbered in the order that I obtained them. I am sure calling them by the year can be confusing for newer members, before they read some of my threads on them. So, I will start to address them as PK#1, PK#2, PK#3 and so on. This way, the members who don't know what they are will hopefully pick up that PK is an acronym for Power King.

I don't like your numbering system. :p I can't follow numbers, only serial codes, model codes, years, makes, models, conditions, tire sizes, and whether or not they came with a fancy hitch lol.

Oh, and if they are numbered, then you know just how out of control your collection has gotten. I mean why do you want to have to answer "How many of the same tractor does one guy need???" :bigrofl:

Dean, I think that would be WAY harder then any of the other ways I could keep track! I am not sure if I would even be able to remember that! LOL!

Dave, everything that I have done I have been putting into the thread about them. School just started and I have been busy on top of that so I have not had the amount of time I would like to work on them.

Casey, I am not here to please you! Sorry! After Dean's response, I am surprised you didn't say that you could follow names :bigrofl:

What's wrong with the Tire size/HP numbers like 1614, whether it was used way back or not? Don't give them "Names"! I think that is really dumb and not manly to name them.

Ryan, I realize that you are young yet and don't know any better. NEVER count your tractors, never give them names that might indicate how many you have, do NOT make it easy for potential girlfriends and wives to know HOW many tractors you have. Once "they" have a handle on what you have, YOU WILL GET DOWNSIZED! It is perfectly legitimate for you to refer to them as the "75 1614". Your brother should know which one this is, whereas the women in your life will be confused....."don't you mean the 74 1614?" THIS IS YOUR ONLY ADVANTAGE!

You haven't met my brother! He just learned the difference between Economy and Power King when we had that conversation! Besides, it is not like I have my other tractors numbered! So, if they only think I have 5 then I am way better off! If I numbered them all I would be into double digits!

Ryan, did your tractor number catch up to your age yet? Always great to hear about how your collection is growing.
