My wife took the extra time to shine up the tires she really gets into the shows. Really added to the overall appearance.

Phil - all I can say is that it's one of the best looking M's I've ever seen. I spent a lot of hours on an M growing up and I think it is my favorite tractor.
You have done an outstanding job! Congratulations!

The only thing anyone ever gave me was broken chain saws! :(

I have a friend that was given a super MTA and a 450 wide front from a guy he meant at work!

Well got the M to her first show, SCRAP in Gibsonburg ,Ohio Nice time heat was up there,
We planned to haul out on Sunday evening rain was coing, boy did it show up in force.
it poured and made traffic into SCRAP pretty tough, my eldest son and I were going to attend the auction, however we found some folks from church stranded with all there kids in there van, we hooked my sons 4 by 4 up to it and just spun out, so we decided to give the M her first mud bath. at the end of the day we missed the items we were planning to bid on, but my son had a great time pulling folks out , around 20 cars and trucks, his biggest pull was a dodge 3/4 ton with a goose neck loaded with tractors, That M is a beast.
Good to see The Dotsons , Gary and Regina, Bill Darr and Spouse, and "Tent Camper" Kevin Ketcham
All in all we had a great show.and my son got to get on the M as well as help a few folks out.

I hope you got a video of the 'Big M' doing her pulling with all that crowd on hand. Your son won't soon forget that good will mission.

Phil, we wondered where the M got off to. Regina took SteveB over to check it out but it was nowhere to be found. I guess after Kevin pointed out the flaws, you figured you might as well get it muddy! That M is trully a beautiful tractor, GREAT JOB!
