I ran across a couple of pics from garden tractor ads from back in the '70's on Facebook this week. I thought they may be of interest.

 

First pic is the Queen of Country music, Loretta Lynn on a 716 A/C. I don't know the year.

 

Second is a promotional from 1976, a  "Spirit of '76" Cub.

 

I thought they were cool old pics. Anyone have one of these tractors?

Thanks, Noel! I'm a fan of hers also. She's still doing well in her mid 80's!

She may have also sung "I'm proud to be a Allis Chalmers Driver"---LOL!

I ran across another facebook pic tonight that is kind of disturbing---to me anyway! I think Kris---Gtractor and possibly more of you folks can tell me if that is a Struck Mini Dozer being used to make a pile in this pedal car junkyard? I could dig getting my hands on a couple of those pedal cars and a dozer like that too!

Don't know if anyone studied this some but there are 2 possibly 3 pedal tractors and one pedal airplane in this sad scene!---LOL!

 

I guess I hijacked my own thread changing the subject, didn't I ??!!
