Hello everyone,

name's Jim Bordelon, located in Louisiana. I've been lurking around this forum for over a year, having purchased a '58 Cub last July. So far I've gotten a lot of good advice, and hope to return the favor in time.

My dad bought a '58 Cub ~49 years ago, and he and the tractor are still around, with wear and tear to show. The longevity and simplicity of these tractors was a big selling point, and finding the parts vendors through this forum has been a gold mine.

So, with all that out of the way, thanks in advance for the welcome!

Jim

Jim:

One of the best things in life is being able to share a common interest with one's father/son etc., and you got that. Getting your own cub to play with ranks up there. Glad you came in out of the woodwork,... and you probably already know your way around, but just in case..

And you have come to the right place for all things Cub related. If you click on the Site Rules, Regulations, & Important Information,
it will point you to :arrow: the Welcome Wagon wherein you will find links to many useful sites and
topics. One of which is the Cub Manual Server. Enjoy!.


Enjoy playing Cubs with Dad :!:
