I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Maybe you got lucky, might have been always pushing you around :lol:

The battery on my 66 Beatle started to lay down on me while in High School. It was a 6V, so in 1973 there weren't many vehicles to even jump it. So, I would park with a back tire on the curb. When I was ready to leave, would just let her roll down and pop the clutch.. Worked until I saved enough for a battery..
