I've always picked up vintage things from yard sales, like tools, cast iron cook ware, and any hand forged hinges, latches, or other hardware. These old garden tractors just have a look to them that I like, and they are well built and easy to work on. Bob, the Gibson model D like this one came with the Wisconsin AEH engine which was made until 1949. The AEH for the Gibson has a crankshaft that's 1-1/2" longer than the standard AEH crankshaft, to accomidate the 6 groove belt pulley. Cheiffan, I hear you about cutting wood in the cold weather. 18-20 degrees is about the lowest temps I'll cut in. I've cut down a couple of monster oaks in the past, but just split the wood on the spot before hauling it out. It's good winter time exersize and I don't overdo it. John, I have some old cross cut saws, but no clothes from back then, HA! It would be cool to take some pics like that, though. We should start a vintage thread here with black and white photos only and see where it goes. Thanks Kenny, Allis looks good in your edited pic! I never consider anyone posts a hijack in any way. I see what anyone adds as a contribution to the conversation. Hank, you have to get some "classic" pics of the nice tractors in your collection. They would look like they are straight out of a magazine advertisement. Well, glad you guys enjoyed the pics!
The thread with only 'vintage look' photos can be done. I could 'pin' it so it wouldn't get lost. Up to the folks here. I'm asking the other Mods where we should put it. For those of you without editing software, I can help with that. Just need a good sized pic to work with.
