As I said before I like custom paint, but wow that first one is hideous. I kinda like the last one (green one).

Yeah I do believe that anyone cant paint their tractor the way they please and I do enjoy custom colors now and then, but the ones that get me most are the ones in picture 1 and 2.

I think you are onto something there. If someone, probably Casey, or you, that would be a great color. I kind of like it.

I agree, one and two are not cool.

I don't think I've ever seen one dressed that oddly, WOW, that's an interesting paint scheme...
Daniel, I agree, looks like it came straight out of the Big Top.

With all the color changes that Bolens went thru, are you sure that's not a prototype that didn't pass?
May be priceless. :poke:

I remember #1 on ebay. I can almost get the others, but 1 takes the cake. All the wasted time on the details to make something so ulgy. Yuck! That is one for the 'Dont do this to your tractor' file. lol
