IS IT JUST ME (AM I NUTS ?) WENT SNOOPING AROUND AGAIN TODAY LOOKING FOR ANOTHER TRACTOR, AND I DONT CARE WEATHER THIS ONE WAS A HORSE OR NOT, I WANT A TRACTOR FROM MY BIRTH YEAR 1956, WELL THIS ONE WAS PROBABLY A 70s MODEL. YOU WOULD THINK IT SHOULD BE PRETTY EASY, COMPARED TO SOME OF THE TRACTORS SOME OF YOU GUYS WOULD HAVE TO FIND HA HA HA !!!!! MY IDEAL TRACTOR WOULD HAVE TO BE A POND, BUT I WILL TAKE ANYTHING FROM 1956. DOES ANYONE HAVE THAT SPECIAL BIRTH YEAR TRACTOR IN THEIR COLLECTION, THE CLOSET I'VE GOT IS A 58 RJ

Not me, but still looking. Hard to get a 1957 garden tractor around here. Doubt if any where sold on PEI at that time, so I have looking at farm tractors. 1957 farm tractors don't seem to popular either. Noel

In your hunt for a 57, are you looking at 2 wheelers as well, or only

4 wheelers.

I've been looking for a 1949 GT but haven't located one yet. We have a 1949 Allic Chalmers farm tractor but still looking for a GT of my birth year.     Thanks.

Roger.

Good luck on the treasure hunt next weekend. Sounds interesting. I've been waiting for

things to melt and dry up, to get at a couple of deals too. I know what your going through,

with the waiting.

How about changing to the year you graduated high school. That's 78 for me which is a good year for GT's. My 79 317 is close.

For me it would be a 1990, which at that time garden tractors where cheap and junk, I guess I will stick with the 70's :thumbs:

I would need a 1969 model, I have a '68 Sears SS12, good for me as in tractors.

 

NowI wouldn't mind a '69 Camaro, '69 nova, or '69 Chevelle to put in the collection  :smilewink:

The 1950 units were crude and lacked a lot of conveniences we take for granted. Even Hydralics let alone Live Hydralics were a rare option. Think I would prefer a bit newer. maybe my high school graduation year? 1969.
