"Show tractor"  Where I come from thats called a POS or scrap LOL

 

I agree wholeheartedly with oldbuzzard, drives me nuts when people do this. In this hobby once someone posts wrong info it spreads like wildfire, if its already this bad with people thinking this is a ford I cant imagine what the next generation will be like, Its up to guys like us to restore these things back to original condition and preserve the machines history, so future collectors will know what these machines actually looked like.

 

 

Looks like a 650 missing ALOT of parts

Not the 1st, nor will it be the last "Ford Bolens" we'll see. I've had many people try to argue with me over the years that FMC = Ford Motor Company... some people will just never get it.

I've painted stuff that looked better than that while drunk with rattle cans from the dollar store!


Just a rough estimate, how often do you do that?

Not a tube frame

Well,  it is a tube frame - but a Bolens.  I totally forgot about the Ford tube frames when I posted that and recknowledged what it really was.

I haven't had anyone argue with me, but I have seen FMC referred to as Ford Motor Co in a number of ads over the years.

:D  :D I think you guys are being too hard on Charlie. If it wasn't for that mechanic's class for guys with special needs, he would be spending his days just playing with the spokes on his bicycle.
