Hello All,:howdy: i have been pondering this question for some time how old do gt's need to be considered an antique? I know cars and trucks are 25 years but what about garden tractors? Also is there a age limit at the tractor shows of how new a unit or old a unit has to be to show.I think my gt is an 1988 model (917.255914) and my second(with no engine at the moment) is i think a 1987(917.255911). Thanks again for the help everyone. Tootles:050::050::bellyemot:bellyemot:050::050:

Technically doesn't something have to be 50 years old to qualify as an antique? Seems like that's the number I hear antique people throw around.
Vintage, classic, collectable, those are all terms that get throwed around quite freely in automotive circles but meant to mean an old pile of iron that might still move under it's own power.
The term "antique" is way over used.Furniture for one must be at least qualify.People use it as a selling feature,to jack the price a tad.It's all just words and how best to decribe an item.I once in time considered antique stuff to be so old an rickidy that it wouldn't be usefull.But the older I get----opps,sorry got off subject.----Your GT or as you see it,as long as it is yours.:trink40:
