Nice entry Ray.

Alright guys, don't let the two entries we have so far scare you from getting your nominations in. Would like to see at least 5 entries before we start the voting.

I would like to nominate my 1977 Ford LGT 165. Since I live in the USA, it is always patriotic with it's paint scheme. (Unbeknownst to me, the Ford and windmill got together to show off their colors). I have had this tractor for a little over six months. When purchased, the Ford came with a set of chains, a 48" trip blade, 42" mower deck, 10" plow, and a 36" tiller.

So far, I have only used it to till my little garden. I have mostly been getting the motor back in shape and getting some paint on to slow the rust. I am going to continue to get the mechanics in shape this summer and build a few items to add to the tow hitch and tooth bar(harrow teeth). Hopefully, we won't get a large snow like we had last winter. But, if we do, I feel confident the Ford will get the job done.

I will look for some new rollers for the mower deck, and if these can be purchased cheaply, I will rework the PO's welds and get the mower working again. The spindles seem to be good.

The windmill does have a blue center, just hard to make out in the pics. George, here's the closest I could come to a T-shirt seat cover. Need to buy one of yours.(These comments may be omitted if need be)

I agree, Ray. There are usually a bunch of tractors added by now. Quit procrastinating, guys and gals.
