My brother was making a run to look at an old buggy frame.  i went along for the ride, just to be a nice guy. While we were there the gentleman showed us all of his "projects", and mentioned selling a few. 

 

The next thing i know Big brother is twisting my arm, threathening, and cursing and forced me to buy an XL10 and a  32"  snow blower.  ( At least that is what i told the wife.)  :D   

 

The grand plan is to have his and her tractors when I match it up to the XL10 i already have.  :thumbs:

 

( At least that is what i told the wife)  :D

And I suppose you told her was going to blow snow? That's what ruined your plan.

Very nice find! Maybe a little rust but the sheet metal looks to be in great shape!

The truth is if he hadn't had got it I would have!. But settled for the buggy frame instead. The camera lens  fogged over from the humidity while taking these pics. Sorry.
