Is everyone on vacation?  Now that we have exhausted the Zagrays show, paint, trailer, and rearend issues what's next?  I am getting bored with the silence of this forum.  Hello Hello.

 

Dave

I was wondering the same thing?? 4 or 5 days, including a weekend and nothing.  I sold my restored t707es with plow and umbrella on eBay, so now it time to start on the t785es.

A bunch more shows starting after Labor Day. Fall Zagray is 4 & 5 OCT. Last year was real nice. The one in Kent should be good. Good Luck, Rick

A t785es at Portland today, was  sold and waiting for tomorrow to x-fer owners.  Round fenders, he thought about 66 or 67 year, one of the later ones he said. Kinda ugly, whenever it was made, ha!

Its funny how several of those have shown up in the eastern CT area over the last year and a half. Anybody know why?

 

One of my groups is MagnaTrac Tractors(not the tracked machines). They were made in Alabama in the early 60s then bellied up. They had been sold as kits from the back of Popular Science Magazine.  Railroad Salvage Stores, in Eastern CT, bought out the inventory and sold them in the late 60s and early 70s. They are a heavy GT with a 19D or 23D B&S engine. They had two styles of hood. I have one of each plus a parts chasis. See my pic.  We seem to have the greatest concentration of them here in eastern CT. Atleast one carcass shows up at Zagray each year.

 

Part of the fun of these old tractors is learning the history and the reasons for their inovations. As far as postings, the weather is great, we should be outside more and inside less. When you need it, GTT is here. Good Luck, Rick
