Another Cubber!

Postby davajones » Thu Apr 01, 2004 12:58 pm

Hi Cubbers! I grew up on a tobacco farm in Eastern NC using a Farmall Cub and Massey Harris Pacer. I am now the proud owner of my own restored 1948 Cub (same vintage as me)! Love this little red tractor! She will be used to do some mowing and gardening. No heavy lifting. My tractor is the one on page 3 in the photo gallery. Glad to be among such dedicated red-blooders!

Thanks! I think that it turned out very well indeed. The folks at Longlane, LLC in Newberry SC fixed this one up for me. Takes me back to the days when I use to drop tobacco worms down the muffler and rev' her up to watch 'em fly out! Boy, didn't know it then, but those were the best days of my life!

David! Welcome to the board. Nice looking cub and I enjoyed the before & after pics. You need to plan to join us in some of our cub activities such as Cubarama or Cubfest. Bring that little jewel along and I'll give it a ride on my trailer! :)

I'd love too! While I'll try to keep her "shiny" she will get some work-outs!

Dava, glad to see you posting. I and my 48 are also same year. My signature file used to read

Mine was in better shape in the "before" pictures. Only wish I could be "restored" as cheap! ;-)
