Another road trip but this one is only an hour or so away. Had some errands to run on the way to the city to pick up new glasses. Taking a short cut to stop at a friend place to see what he had scrounged lately, I went past several houses on the edge of town. Sitting next to the drive along side a couple golf carts was a GT. I thought the back look kind of familiar with the so did a quick look back and seen the word BOLENS on the side of the hood.
Business taken care of and made a return trip back to where I saw that tractor. I pulled in the drive and there sat a 1476 with a blade standing on end in front. Looked a little rough due to the fender pan being bent up good on one side. Went to the dor and a young lady with a baby came to the door and I told her who was and why I was at her door. "Does your husband want to sell the tractor?" I asked, "As a mater of fact he does, I will get him on the phone". After asking some questions about the tractor, etc. I asked what he though he had to have for it. He said "I will never get it fixed up so all I want is what I paid for it, $100. and there is a deck that goes with it also. Needless to say I agreed on the price and going back tomorrow with the trailer and pick up the tractor and blade. will get the deck later as it is still at the PO residence. I guess after getting burned on the G16 and the trouble I had with the Gardener I MAY have got lucky for a change. Will know more when I get it home.
