look what followed me home

The fella that was talking to me about it at the Wellington OH show back in September called me today telling me that he had finally dug it it out of the attic over his garage.

So, I jumped in the trusty F150, money changed hands, and I'll be 'cozy' on at least one of my Bolens Diesels this winter.

This is the ONLY pic you danged buncha picaholics are gonna get until after it's mounted so don't start :deadhorse: :D :D :D

Now I have to figure out which tractor to put it on, the 20D or the HDT...decisions, decisions.

Yes, it's a hard top cab with the glass front windshield and manual wiper.

Congrats on the Cab!
Looks like your going to have to build a storage shed for all this stuff you've been getting lately :D

That's a great find OB! I'll second the thoughts about building a "shed", but I'm thinking that it'll more likely have to be an annex at the rate you're going!

Looks like a nice addition in the making.

I vote HDT, maybe we should start a poll & help you decide. LOL

I have no idea why we would clamor for more images in this case. It is obvious you have picked up a vintage drip pan to place under your wringer washing machine. I've seen lots of those. My paternal grandparents had one (in operation) until 1990 or so. No need for more pics, imo.

WAIT.......

That's a cab?

How in the heck you come up with all your stuff! There must have been more people having bigger gardens back in the day out there. Things aren't all that plentiful around here or maybe you swing through here on one of your adventures and got everything already LOL. Good luck with the cab :thumbs:

A flight of 5 of these Kiowas flew over the house last week. I was thinking of how awesome they would be at finding old tractors and scrap cars. Maybe rig a business card shooter to get my name to the owners. LOL
