Newb from California

Postby rdub29 » Thu Oct 01, 2009 10:44 pm

Hello, my name is Ryan. I do not own a cub, however, aspire to. I am a self taught gearghead. Which really means I tinker w/ things until they break. Then pat myself on the back when I somehow manage to fix them. My accomplishments include taking a perfectly good CJ7, and messing with it until it needed to be fixed, lol! I have had a love for tractors all my life and now that I have some property, I'd love to give a classic IH Cub a home. Its great to meet folks who share this passion. PM me anytime.

Ryan:

Hope you get your Cub sooner that later. Although Cubs seem rare in California, Robert seems to be able to find em. So they are available.

Welcome Ryan!

I hope you live up to your aspirations and get that Cub! You will find that tinkering with a Cub is a bit easier than a CJ7!

Good luck,
David

Ryan,
Welcome to the best forum on the net.....you just have to open your eyes in California and start looking.....they are everywhere....some are tucked away....I only paid 800 for mine and it ran good.....I'm in Bakersfield.....It's in the madesto area being restored right now....And I live in a typical neighborhood.....but be careful because once you get one & hear it run....you will be hooked.
