I thought i would post a picture of the two togather so it would show how they compliment each other :lol:
:? Only problem is I am afraid to open the door at the shop this morning they were parked next to each other last night :twisted: and there may be a litter of cadets running around under foot :roll:

Now I have a problem-my Cub saw those pics and thinks all Cubs look like that ! Next thing my Cub will want is new tires, paint, tune up--I need some beat up Cub pics to leave around before my tractor revolts and drives away.
Seriously-they look great-nice work

That would not be a bad thing...you would not have any trouble finding homes for the little ones!

They sure are quite the pair. You know BD wouldn't mind some cub cadets running around. I'm sure he would adopt them since he is a kind person like that :lol:

Ralph, yer killin me!
Can I use your nice garage as an excuse?? (mine has 2 truck campers in front of it and the 86 Town Car is stuck in a snow bank, Rufus couldn't escape if he tried)
Possibly I should ban beer from the garage? (nope nothing would get done)
I have got to give you credit, that is a fine looking team.

Question... you painted the starters black, but the generators are yeller. I did the opposite, mostly because when I started to clean up the generator it was just too much of a mess so I took it to the old guy in the bigger city to rebuild it and he offered to paint it black and I said ok. I painted the coil and regulator black too. Is it just your preference?

Ralph,
Those are two of the most beautiful yellow and white Cubs i've seen. I'm so taken, i was wondering if i could print that picture off to show my grandpa? (Long time IH lover and former employee) and also a restorer of Cub Cadets, and i know he'd love to see your cubs. Keep up with such fine work!!!

Ralph..."SPEC-TAC-U-LAR"..."Blackie" looks like he's as "Fresh" as ever...y'all must was & wax him after every use 8) ?

"Flo" & "Blackie" are a "match made in the garage" Ralph...I hope they produce several "Originals"...a Model 70...a Model 73...and a Model 100 (just for starters) :lol: !!

When it comes to the end of the day...Ralph is the "Cub-Git-R-Done-Guy" :wink:
