George, I gotta go with #8 on this deal. It might be important to ask Marilyn what her choice is! I can't wait to see how artistic she gets with it. Maybe you can have it done in time for Marion.

Obviously, George

I like the traditional color, but whatever she picks she deserves a seat full of :wink: roses.

Well, I voted yesterday, but I'm not tellin' what my choice was. Gramma Willer will be pleased with her pretty pink cub!

They all look kinda neat to me. BUT, being a "Graphic Artist" by trade, if I where to break tradition... I would go all the way! Not just one color!

If it's not going to be traditional red, I would be painting it at least three colors maybe more. Maybe even a little air brush art!!

The problem with all one color is some people may see it and just think it is painted "the wrong color". But if you really make it different it is obvious that it is an expression.

Although you did say the artist in you wife may add to your paint, so maybe everything I just said is moot.

Have fun!

It's hard to imagine a Cub other than red butt if I were to choose something other than red I'll vote for #6. Me and my neihbor painted a Gravely L series Cub Cadet yellow last year and it turned out nice.

Dad:

I had a dream last night that Maw and all my nephews decided to paint Maw's cub by themselves. Whadda U think? Maw was really proud. Maybe my son BD won't find it now.

Looks like somebody already was.

GW,
I was kind of leaning toward the blue, but then thought #4 with a nice cream color on the wheels, just like my '49.

GEORGE,
MY WIFE AND I BOTH LIKE NUMBER SEVEN, BUT WE WILL VOTE FOR NUMBER FOUR. WE THINK A CUB MUST BE RED.

George,
I consulted some of my friends and a few neighbors and they all agree that the choice needs to be # 1, since #8 is just too feminine. All the other colors choices are nice, but too common. It was also suggested since Marilyn is the artis, that maybe She would like a multicolored unit
once the main color was sellected for the main body and leave the wheels, fenders, light fixtures, and the starter as a primered base for
her canvas?

Good luck with this most interesting project! Good luck to Marilyn too!

Best wishes for all concerned........ Randy W.
