Nice. What else do you have to go with the meteor?  Do you have a deck or any other attachments?

I'm not sure whats better the meteor or a girl friend that likes going to tractor shows.

Both are cool. Would like to see more pictures of your tractors.

That is a great looking tractor! I'm glad your girlfriend enjoys the GT's along with you. Is that a hydraulic pump on the right side?

The pump on the right side is the hydrostatic transmission. The meteor was an early automatic.

That model new back in the late 60's was close to $1000 new without mowing deck.

I know what's better.....   a WIFE that likes going to tractor shows with a Meteor.  She sounds like a keeper. :smilewink:

 

Nice tractor.  Is it a 1010 or 1012?

I'm hoping to have my Meteor running this winter.

Love the tractor.  Wish the meteor had stuck around a few more years as it was just getting started when it was wound down. Guess the much higher price was part of the problem for the hydro.

 

What's better is that you could have a wife and a girlfriend who both like to go to shows!  Different shows of course, though.

I don't know what it looked like when in operation but the local Panzer dealership is now a diner. :D

Nawww.  You just need to take two tractors and set them up on opposite sides of the show grounds.  You can just bounce back and forth.  Just make sure neither want to walk around with you. :smilewink:
