The part of the Dakotas I live in is very Rual. Heck I have to drive 56 miles just to get to a Taco Bell. Where I live is where most of those pictures come from when you see 4 or 5 combines running in a row cutting the havest, a small farm here is 3000 acres. Well there really was not a lot of people buying "garden Tractors" here in the 60's and 70's due to farm sizes. So my luck of finding great deals like the people on the east coast is very far and few. I have to drive hundreds of miles to pick up a single part or attachment or even a lone tractor. Well today I managed to buy out a small engine shop "old stuff" stock, what is to me a great deal. not really sure what is all here, or even if I can use any of it. But what I did figure is that I am sure with all the brands that GT forums covers someone will need this stuff. I know of hard it is to find new old stock stuff, so I bought all this and will be offering it out to those who need it. I just could not let it get tossed or go somewhere to collect dust till it is tossed.

Things like this just don't come up often here in the middle of nowhere.

Here are a few pictures

Wow, looks like you hit pay dirt.
I understand how some things are more available as part of a location.
My Mom had a weakness for the Wheatland Fender style MH tractors, unfortunately they aren't around here in numbers and when they were found, they were usually more money than could be justified.

Sardinia, Ohio. Blink and you have drove by, 1 1/2 hour one way to Airborne in Wilmington 6 days a week including sleeping on base to work 3rd shift.

 

In Montana, through the winter, Caroline had a 25 min walk to the buse stop, 2 hour ride to work in Bozeman and vice versa back home every day, 5 days a week.

 

Now, it take a few hours or less depending on how fast I drive to cross Massachusetts and people here wine about distance, please !

wow he sounds a little upset, I bet you, you can't drive 192 miles on the same US highway and only go thru 1 traffic light and still be in the same state.

I also bet there are more people in your fine City of Boston then the entire state of South Dakota.
