I encourage everyone to see todays' Blondie comic strip. It seems that Dagwood is a GT enthusiast!

Thats a good one :D

Blondie has been a classic for years. I'm guessing the comic printing is different state to state? Normally Monday-Saturday are printed black and white here....

The tractor looks like a Ford LGT with side panels to me.

Looks more like a blue John Deere to me.  Even the hood decal resembles a JD decal.

I agree with Daniel. It looks like a 300 series tractor with a 49 snow thrower on it. Pretty neat that it was based on an actual machine. If they hadn't changed the colour JD would have wanted royalties!

I don't remember a time when there wasn't a Blondie comic, and that's better than 67 years. Howcome Dagwood hasn't aged and I have? It's sure nice that other than that small oversight they've kept up with the times. Yeah, it looks like a repainted J.D. to me too.

JD hood and engine side panel. The grill is a Roper. The hydro control lever is Simplicity. Mid to late 80's model 49 snowblower, me thinks.
