Well as you all know I just bought to b series last Sunday well I found a big ten on here for sale and had to bite . do I have room for another one nope, will my parents question my sanity for buying yet another one in a week's time , yes. But look at these photos she's beautiful and its original again so I had to . I have a serious problem but oh well life's short right? If it helps I only paid four hundred for it and it runs like a top.

That's in great shape. Are you going to leave it as it is? I love it as it is in my opinion.

Now is time to shift into collecting attachments. As far as adiction is concerned, there are alot of worse things that we could be doing. Visit www.simpletractors.com and make a wish list of the attachments that were available in 1965. Then work on it as though it were a bucket list. I've got 3 B10s and over a dozen attachments but still want more. Good Luck, Rick

In the UK, tarp is ok as a temporary cove/ storage solution but does tends to sweat in hot weather. If you can take the tarp off from time to time in good weather so as to allow air to circulate. You will be better off storing it in a shed. Can you knock one up in your garden?

Lol I live in an apartment otherwise I would. Me and the misses are gonna prolly buy a house here next year so it is just temporary realisticly I won't get that one till July. That's why I'm putting the worst one out side since it lacks paint and decals anyway it won't matter. The nice original s will stay in the garage.

I use large plastic bags that cover the entire GT. I keep atleast one side off the ground to allow air circulation. Tarps work allright, but I have trouble keeping them from blowing off. Any protection should be better than nothing. Good Luck, Rick

Tarped tractors will hold up OK if kept on a dry concrete surface. The worst thing is if you have a lot of wind the tarps will rub the paint off the corners of the tractor.  I have about 26 tractors tarped but most were in poor condition prior to tarping. I definitely don't recommend getting more than five to ten tractors total.  I have reached a point of absurdity where I have over 30 units in one place but only one that can cut grass.
