Have been lucky to find GTs and attachments within an hour of where I live.  I would go as far as what could be a round trip done in one day.  Which for me could be Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa or Illinois.  But, if the price was right, and the GT was right, might be worth making an overnight trip to go get it.

The whole episode of buying and building the David Bradley was an adventure. I live in Texas, and there are no DB's down here- none. I have many relatives on the east coast, so I used the trip as an excuse to go see some of them. I purchased the David Bradley in Massachusetts, my uncle picked it up from there and brought it to Virginia, and I drove up from Texas to get it in my late father's old Dodge Caravan. This is not something I would normally do, but I felt like an adventure, and I had a purpose to fulfill. But Hey! If you don't figure in the trip costs, the restoration costs, the time away from work- I got 2 David Bradleys for $100! You can't beat that with a stick! All in all, it was fun.

I'll bet i know the guy you bought the tractor from.

Quite the trip but sometimes we have to travel far to find what we want or need, your right about there being non in Tex, not a common tractor down there, must be quite the head turner :thumbs:
