And the tractor slush fund is empty! The first one was a red Cub, a 54 or earlier, for sale at a used car lot out in the middle of nowhere. Looked pretty fair from the road, though it was missing one headlight and had a jazzy looking bucket seat from a car instead of the usual pan......had a belly mower under it. I suspect it's one of those "sherwin-williams" restorations. Tractor had turf tires.
The second, which I lusted after, was a yellow/white, with a flail mower and a trailer behind it with what looked like were cultivators sticking up. This was all going 60 MPH but it looked good and had turf tires on it. I'll be going that-a-way again next week and if I can remember to, I'll take along the camera and try to get a pic and contact info if anyone's interested. Same goes for the red Cub.
