Well the winner should be the ugliest tractor so everyone should strive to have a very ugly tractor nomination. 

 

I think next year we will do like we did our very first year where members nominated other member's ugly tractors.

My exact thoughts.

It is a good start but I've seen some tractors here on GTT that are worse than a sharp stick in the eye. Maybe their owners, like doting mothers, can't see the ugly.

to the theme: not the tractor, the driver is mostly the ugly part of the team!

Case-closed, I think you entered that in the wrong contest. They are looking for ugly tractors not abominations. :D

I would like to nominate my CaseDeere for the "Title" of ugly tractor. I have heard it said that ugly is only skin deep but in this case I believe the ugly part is only paint deep. There are those out there that find this paint sceme attractive and it sorta is but not when applied to this particular tractor. Once again, I didn't paint it.

 

My CaseDeere is a good little tractor as he helps me keep the  lawn looking good and also  does a great job fogging for mosquitos  Over the winter he will get a "real" paint job, a mower deck overhaul  and a repower with a 7Hp Lombardini diesel.

 

 

:bigrofl:

Heck, Herb, I like it... though the purists for Case and JD will scream...  keep it the way it is.

I think you might be on to something Smitty, keep the paint do the repower and call it good. It also needs a name we can easily remember. How about "abomanation" oh wait thats already taken.
