Paint her one of the them her favorite color and tell her that you did it so she would have one of her own to ride around on at the shows!!

They're still making new girlfriends everyday. They're not making old tractors.

I am in the same boat. My fiance knows I am addicted and she accepts that they are fun for me. I wouldn't say she is supportive, but she doesn't stand in the way too much.

I hate to admit it here, but I made a promise last year not to buy another tractor. It's been hard watching some great deals pass along, but she's worth it. I'm slowly getting her interested too. She's warming up nicely to the Elec Trak as it's so easy to operate.

Hang in there and try to get her involved. Like Brian said, give her something to call her own.

I bet the girl friend has 5 times as many shoes as you have garden tractors.

Ask her if she'd rather you spend your time and money in a bar every night, and drinking to the point, that you have nothing to show for the money you spent. If that doesn't get a reaction from her, then ask her if she'd rather you ride another woman instead of a garden tractor. Willing to bet you'll get a reaction then!

Most women just don't understand. If you find one that does, best handcuff her to a tractor. It's the same thing as her shoes, dresses, etc she buys all time. But most can't understand that!

My wife likes tractors and as long as I discuss any purchases with her and don't spend the grocery money I'm fine. She likes the GT's better than the big tractor which can be a bit hard for her to handle in close quarters.

You have a tractor addict disease. You must understand that your girlfriend has a disease, too. It's a controling your boyfriend syndrome and it's incureable, also. So, ask yourself, "What am I going to do? What is more important to me?"

Complaining about her shoes won't work. She probably thinks those are a neccessity to make her look nice for you and you don't appreciate it. Same as her wardrobe, same as her jewelry and hair styling. Women think those are neccessities like tools are to you.

Have you tried getting her involved in your hobby? When I was a teenager our neighbors did garden tilling and custom mowing.
Al started it as a hobby, When it got bigger than he could do parttime(he was a boiler operator at Maytag) He told Alice he was eithr going to quit or sell off his tractors. Alice took over the business bought two new Ford Tractors and ran the business till she was old enough she could no longer climb up on her tractors. argueing wont do a thing for either of you,negotiate a compromize.
