Well for me it is. Going Saturday to get me a Springfield model 36. I have been looking for one of these within reasonable distance for well over a year. I know they are not as popular as other tractors but they have a soft spot in my heart. My Grandfather had one of these. Fond memories of him on the Springfield and me on the little Huffy rider running circles around one another after his front yard was mowed. It's going to need work but I wanted a project. Ill post pictures as soon as  get it home.

What a great find for you and a cool little tractor.  These old tractors seem to evoke memories like nothing else can.  I get a flood of memories every time I get on the old Pond.  Have fun with it!
