My vote is for the Ridemaster that is in pieces. Just my opinion but the FMC Bean Culter should stay as is. Looks better the way it is.

I would go for a Ride a matic but if that's not your choice than the Prototype would be cool to have at a show restored. I can't imagine there are very many of those out there.

OK guys not to jump over the poll but the Ridemaster in parts is first and will be started soon.

I will then move onto the Bean Cutler or the prototype 1886 who ever is in the lead after the Ridemaster gets done I dont think it will take long to do the Ridemaster theres not much there as a tractor.. :D
