I just found an A.J. Foyt Signature Edition Bolens, new, with parts manual.

 

1987 year, 14 HP Hydro.

I saw one junked on flea-pay and thought it was made up until I saw this.

 

But, $40,000.00??? REALLY???

In another 100 years, it might be worth that asking price. That's assuming that he doesn't increase it to account for inflation.

 

He had that on eBay for a couple of years and it was a joke here for quite awhile.

 

One can only assume that at some point in his early years, he consumed vast amounts of various illegal substances, and his version of reality is not the same as the average person.

Oh! It's not even a classic Bolens GT. It's a lawn mower. For 40K you could set yourself up in a lawn care business with commercial grade equipment.

There's a few threads taking about this machine from a few years ago.

I think when someone on ebay asked if the price was a joke they got a very nasty e-mail in return :D

So for $40K how much stock will you get in the dealership?

I think he will offer free delivery on the mower if you pay the asking price, as long as its within a 10 mile radious other wise its $10  a mile after that! :D

My neighbor keeps eyeballing my sweet ride when it's rolling coal in the thick grass or sending snow from whence it came. When he finally gets the courage up to finally cross and shoot me an offer, I will have a printout of that auction in my pocket. When we're done laughing, I will settle for 20K.

Send him a email and ask if he would like to trade 40 acres of ocean front property located in Kansas for it!
