Andrew's 1st Ride

Postby Tinkertoy » Fri Nov 20, 2015 7:09 pm

My great nephew, Andrew (3 yrs)...had his first tractor ride and I'm sure it won't long before more rides are requested....good little sport he is... :spinning: He made his debut at my hayride with his Mom...who also loved it !! He got off the red Cub (Minnie) , he walked over to the yellow Cub and said, "I like Minnie...but I LOVE Moxie" ! Maybe he is looking to be in my will... :lol:

Smart lad! Obviously he knows his tractors.... but that red one is sure purdy!

Although Yeller is not my favorite color, my favorite Cubs are Yeller!

Love the pictures! Those all will be something special for him to remember years from now.

Being a Cub aficionado (for John *.?-!.* cub owner that means "Cub nut" :D ) I have to ask; why are the brake pedals and clutch pedal in picture two so far out of alignment? The brakes aren't locked on as the lock arm is clearly visible sticking up in the air. Are the springs on the brake pedals weak, broke, not installed? Or is the clutch pedal bent or maybe the platform where it hits against is bent?

Really, I thought you took better care of Andrew's backup tractor than allowing something like this.
Best fixit it or he make take away your seat time privileges! :wink: :D :lol:

Scrivet...you may be a cub nut, however, your eyesight is playing games with you...the pedals are fine and I don't think you can honestly say you can see all that is wrong with the pedals from just a picture...(you remind me of the Building Inspector from town who uses photography to condemn peoples' projects)...remember the little guy has legs only 18" long if that....try new glasses...lol

2nd and 4th photos show a mis-alignment of the clutch and brake pedals.

Could be my eyesight. I don't think so. I had my eyes examined just over one month ago.
I have an excuse. CRS.

That's a great looking cub. The only thing that out shines the cub is your nephew. Man get that last picture printed and entered into some contest and sent to some magazines. That is a prise winner.
