Woke up to 3-4" of snow so my brother and I went out and plowed/snowblowed. Got a couple more inches and counting so will have to plow later today or in the morning agian. Here is the lineup. My brothers '78 GT/16 with crude homemade snowblower plow, my '67 Sub 10 with big snowblower, my new '68 Super 12, and my '69 Sub 12.



Finally got to use my restored snowblower today, didnt do as good as I was hoping but maybe it will do better with deeper snow. Now I need a snowcab. Anyone in Mi have one for sale?



Took the deck off my new '68 Super 12 today and put the plow on from my '69 Sub 12 because the lift handle needs straightened on the plow it came with. It did pretty good considering it didnt have chains on it. Wheel weights and cultivator helped though. When I was done using it my brother noticed a considerable amount of oil on the frame. I think its coming from the block halves. Need to fix that now. So the plow is going back on the '69.




More pics later.

That's some serious snow removal equipment.:fing32:

Is that an old Dodge Pickup I see in the background, does it have Joe on the door ?

Thanks, I was hoping to have my '69 SS 12 going too but its still down for repairs. Its a '59 Ford Truck. Yeah its a fake shop truck with mostly real patina. My dad has been working on it all summer. New brakes, lines, 60 over 223 six, and the usual rust repair for a michigan truck this old.

Thanks, unfortunately thats where most of them have to spend the winter. Hoping to build a garage or shed for them all in the spring/summer. Hate to see them sit out in the weather. If I could talk my parents into selling their '08 John Deere mower I could put one more inside. LOL Not going to happen though.

Nice fleet.
Thanks. Still snowing here.

Thanks for sharing the pics; they're all nice...even the one-eyed one!

BTW, if you get tired of plowing snow you can bring a few loads down for me to play in...
No problem. The other headlight rattled out and didnt put it back in yet. Thats along way to go just to bring snow. lol

Nice heard of groud pounders you got there!
Looks like the snow blower need to be turning faster.
Has anyone played with the pulley size to increase rpms,and did it help?

Thanks for looking. Sears also made a '67 SS 12 that was blue, but I dont have one and a '68 Suburban 12 that was orange that I dont have, and a '69 SS 12 that was blue like the one in my sig. pic. Sears used blue and orange on alot of older Sears suburbans.
