I guess im curious for you alls opinions. It seems like stuff goes in cycles. First it was john deere stuff was really hot and now it seems to be that panzer stuff is all the rage right now. Not criticizing anyone. Anyone else notice this?

I think as each brand is "rediscovered" the popularity spikes. Obviously the unusual, rare, etc can have a great following... So can pride of heritage and longevity.

To me there aren't any uncollectable brands and each has its own allure. Just some are more alluring than others and to each, their own.

Same thing happens in the minibike world.

Tacos, rupps, bonanzas, trail horses, tote goat.

One is the rage then 4 months later its another.

Im a cub fan myself.

I was thinking about that today.  Last year it seemed like all I did was clean carburetors and this year it has been electrical.
