Nice tractor. I miss winters in Blacksburg....So much easier than Upstate NY. Got my MFA from VA Tech.

Yes, I agree, that 700 looks great! Does anyone have a spare set of badges, please?

good luck finding a 700 pair they go for big money on ebay. I recasted a pair out plastic for mine. I was lucky enough to get a set of 725 emblems but mine is 700

I always was a dreamer! However, if anyone is getting castings done, I am certainly interested in a 700 set, please.
