Here's a few of the lil' GTs I've collected through the years. The little B-110 was the first one I got. Used to play with one at my grandparents when I was younger and wanted my own ever since.

 

I would like to find a Bolens GT, but I don't know that they ever made toys back then. Maybe someone would know if they did or not.

 

I have lots more diecast at home which I'll post some pics later. Just sitting at the shop watching paint dry between coats so I thought I'd post a couple of pics. Enjoy!

I honestly didn't know they made diecast garden tractors.  Those are pretty neat!

Those are really neat.  I wish I had mine as a child.  My sister and I had identical cub cadets.  I haven't seen them in over 30 years.

 

I'd like to see all yours some time.

I haven't found one to my liking yet (price is to high), but I'll get one someday.

Wouldn't mind having a full size patio but I just haven't found one to my liking.

So a Bolens guy can't have a couple of Deeres? Then why does someone that lives in town have a couple of sheds full of GTs? :D    Because he can....I guess.

You bet I can! I like your way of thinking! You tell 'em. :thumbs:  Now if only I could explain this train of thought to my wife. :(

First of all, one's not a shed.  It's my garage.  I think it's my shed but my wife tends to have a different opinion.  Someday she'll come around.  Secondly, if you look in there at the moment you'll see 3 Deeres.  We don't tolerate discrimination at our place.  All colors are welcome! :poke:

 

Since I don't think I'll ever find an Oliver for a price I would pay before I win the lottery, I just made one.  It used to be a Ford.  Trade you a Ford for that patio Nate.  :smilewink:

You did a nice job on the Oliver! Maybe we'll have to talk about it.

 

I've got a few different colors in the shed. Even green ones, just a different shade of green than you have :D
