For the past year I have been trying to ad a RJ58 to the collection. I was looking, asking, and willing to travel for anything complete. Restored or not, dead or alive.
I had found a lead in Iowa but got fustrated after the seller canceled and postponed on me for 2 months. So I gave up and continued.
Over the past few months I got leads from other tractor sales or purchases, but everything left me empty handed.
Last year I remember seening one at our local car swap meet. At the time I walked away thinking the seller was crazy for what he was asking. So today Michelle and I went with a wad of cash hoping to find this tractor. It took about 3-4 hours and my eyes light up when I saw it in the distance. After 5 minutes haggeling with the seller, the wife said If it is what you want buy it.
So I said deal and we drove it away. I dont remember the last time I heard so many comments and looks after buying something. On our way out 3 people asked us how much I paid.
The search is finally over. Thank god because I was about to give up.
