Re: How old do gt's need to be to be concidered antique?
Interesting question. With tractors, it is indeed hard to say. When I lived in Colorado, I'd see the old JD 2 cylinders putting in a days work still. My JD 318 is turning 25 this year, yet it looks to be a very modern tractor. There are very few parts I cannot still get for it, so maybe 25 years is not enough.
Now 2 of my MTD 990s will be turning 40 this year. Getting hard to find parts, and they do look to be from a different era.
But then, a neighbor has a 1938 Allis B (yes, hand cranked still) that he uses a good bit. Coming up on 74 years old and still is used as a tractor.
Why don't you tell us what you think, KC, since the answer is pretty subjective.
