For those in chat who remember our little trick on Adam's "Bolens Wanted" Craigslist ad, well karma sure got me today. Earlier today, we drove about 45 minutes south to look at some parts. Adam picked up some front wheel weights and that was it, so I thought I was in the clear!

Sure enough, he gets an email in regards to his ad from a nice lady whose father (a Bolens collector) passed away a few months ago. Well seven tractors later, we now own his collection.

The first trip included a Bolens 850.

Adam had to sacrifice his garage space.

The second trip brought us a 1050.

Garage is getting smaller....

Third trip (and final for the night) was for this guy.

We left 4 there to grab this week.

Here is one of them:

And another:

There is another 600 there and a newer one (ST something?) that we have to grab too.

... so Adam should be pretty happy now. For the record (since it's on the internet and everything on the internet is true), Delilah and Scout (fosters) can now stay!
