Al, I don't know of any around here, but while I was on vacation in N.C. last June, a friend called. Said he was in Indiana at a tractor show and spotted another IH. He's an IH tractor buff. He said it was $50 and he would pick it up the next day. He went back, kid wasn't there, Grampa said $75. He got him to $60, but was too stuburn to buy it then.Those two machines are gorgeous! Glad to see you have them on some type of display for friends, neighbors, unwanted guests, ect to view them. And thanks for showing them to us in all stages of restore. You and all that contributed have a right to be proud!
And speaking of showing off our machines-
Are there any old machinery (tractor, old engine) shows in the midwest where you might want to let strangers gawk at them and watch contest judges scratch their heads in wonder? Just curious, because the few old machinery shows I've seen didn't have any push mowers entered. But that day may come soon.
If I hadn't gone looking for Lawn Boy info, I never would have found MTF and they would still be right there,,, in the dump.Just think, only months ago those mowers were doomed forever. You made them come back to life to be enjoyed by all who see them. Sure a few people helped you gather components but it took your enthusiasm, hard work and dedication to perfection to bring them out of the dump and into the light again. Now you have them bringing you pride of great accomplishment.
