Yikes! It's green!

Postby brianJ » Tue Apr 14, 2009 7:29 pm

I placed a want ad on my local kijiji and a guy sent me an e-mail to tell me he had a Farmall for sale.

I think this is illegal in parts of Illinois.

That is in fact illegal in Illinois unless your father in law is your Dads younger brother.

Could have experienced a head injury at some point or suffers from color blindness but one could still read the paint can.

That is a sad sight to see and the light on the side of the grille doesn't help it either.

Reminds me of a picture taken at a JD show I saw one time. It was a Farmall M painted JD green, with a sign on the side that read "John Deere's ideal tractor". They said it almost caused a fight.

John, that's exactly what I was thinking with this one. Don't take it to a show or there might be a dust up.

It is amazing when you look at a coat of paint and different locations for the headlights how much it makes me think of an Oliver tractor...

I like IH red better!!

I would take it to shows just to see what kind of uproar I could start. I am still debating with myself what color I am going to paint my 48 I am rebuilding.

I'd take to Red Power Roundup and charge a Dollar a rock to throw at it! Retirement in 1 hour! :lol:
That tractor is just wrong......... Hope the poor guy got his Meds. straightened out :lol:

We have enough problems in Illinois, we sure don't need that one! I'm kinda thinking it needs a one way ticket to South America :twisted:

You folks form Illinos should get together and strap a couple of your ex governors to it and take it to either RPRU or to a Gathering of the Green. :lol:

$1 for a small rock or $2 for a big one but throw them at the painter instead.
