An old John Deere diesel twin with the pony motor. I found one out in the desert but, before I could get it the park service buldozed it and a bunch of other equipment into a ditch and covered them over. Grrrrrrrrr! Still looking.

Welcome Raspy. That's a shame, burying and scrapping tractors. Happens more often than any of us want to see.

Could you imagine the collection of tractors one could have if you were able to have all the ones that were ever buried or scrapped?

That would be something wouldn't it.

I have a 195 Case on my wish list but those are hard to find and expensive if you do run into them. Next there would be the old large Panzer tractors with the single front wheel or the T-102 with the wide front end. Another one would be a Bolens HT 23 with the loader and backhoe on it, or the Allis Chalmers with the forklift attachment. I quess I better stop with these.

JD 318 just not in the budget at this time. Anything JC Penney. The first set of tools that I ever owned were JC Penney that my dad bought for me when I got my drivers licence. Still have every one of them. Always thought it would be cool to work on a Penney tractor with those tools.

I know their great tractors, but I see SOOOOO many of them and either they're 3000 bucks in okay condtion or they're 1000 bucks and worn out. I want a tractor you don't see all that often, but to each his own.

I figured out what my new want but never have tractor is since I already own the one I'd thought I'd never get and the old man is getting the next one on the list that was the HT20D. It is a Bolens HDT 1000, it is a Large Frame Bolen with a 3cyl water cooled Mitsubishi diesel in it.

I've never actually seen an HDT 1000,I know they are model # 2388,but that is all I know about them.I would have to say that I would like to have one though.

It's gotta be a Minneapolis Moline 110 (or any of the Town & Country series). There's just something about a rare beast.


I agree with the comment about owning something that is considered to be rare. For me it would be a 1976 Case 446 Spirit of 76 GT. Realistically, there isn't anything unique about this tractor other than the Bi-Centennial paint job but there are only three of the originals that are positively known to exist out of the six to ten that were allegedly done up this way for the parade in Racine.

I don't know where you are looking or what your budget might be but the 155 and 195 are the two most commonly found tractors of the 100 series garden tractors because they were made for two consecutive years. It's the 130/180 of 1965 and the 150/190 of 1966 that are a bit more difficult to find and the two big-wheel models for those years are now commanding higher prices due to their lower production numbers.

Welcome to the group, not sure if I have already done so, but let me say it's great to have another Case owner here, Mike
