Sticking close to home lately, waiting for baby boy #2 to arrive, and tinkering as usual. A buddy from near Indianapolis had been up a couple weeks back, and through some bartering, left this peach of an original '64 Simplicoty Landlord behind. I gave it some soapy water and a set of hubcaps and couldnt get my little helper away from it! I wanted a few glamour shots, and as usual, he wanted to be my point of focus [;)] Just had to share.

That is cute.  Really cute.  Priceless, actually.  That shot should win tractor of the month just with him in it.

And I see we have a peeping Tom with us tonight...

   If your house is like mine than the tractors all belong to the kids!!!!  You are just allowed to use them and maintain them for awhile :thumbs: till they are ready to use them.  Nice tractor and you son looks very happy to have it :bigrofl:

Great picture!  It should have been used for "Caption this!"  Caption would read, "HA! Dad THINKS this is his tractor!" or something to that effect.

Thanks guys...he's out in the yard & shop with Dad almost always.  When I head out of the house, he is never MIA.  There are lots of hazards I'm constantly watchful for, but he has a ball, and loves tractors.  Heck, he even has his head on a swivel when driving down the road, just like Dad.  'Tractor!' is a commonly hollered word from the carseat in back. 

 

He certainly has quite a collection, and I'm happy to care for them, for him!

 

Here's a few more of his latest pride and joy:

The seat is a nice repro cover, but I have a near mint original I can throw on for shows

Priceless pictures like that always a joy to look at.  Get a print out and put it in a frame for your desk.
