I’m just a glutton for punishment, that is very obvious by now.
This was one of those deals you just can’t pass up, even if I have absolutely no fucking clue what I am going to do with it.
But I mean, come on, right?
How am I supposed to say no to this?
And this, that goes with it?
I am weak, WEAK I TELL YOU!
It’s no use.
I couldn’t resist.
It took two trips to get it all home.
Now that everything, including myself, has had a bath, it is currently sitting out in the garage, calling my name.
Very softly, very insistently, and very often.
Phiiiilllllll, Phiiiiilllll, Phiiiillll, come save me, Phiiiiiillll.
Like I needed another project.
Now the Sprite has been banished outdoors for a while, parking around here is all fucked up because of that and like I said, what am I going to do with it if I do get it all fixed?
The deal is, this was my brother’s girlfriends , father’s tractor and it was his baby.
I have actually known this absolute jewel of a lady longer than my brother has.
The Dad used the shit out of this thing and had a huge garden every year.
He also took really good care of it.
He passed away quite a while ago and her and my brother were cleaning out a shed to put some of HIS crap into and this was kind of in the way.
My Grandfather would have torn your arm off to get his hands on something like this and he did own more than one Walk Behind Tractor when I was a kid, I can actually remember him teaching me how to use one.
When they finally got it un-buried enough to see what it was, they looked at each other and pretty much said, what the hell are we going to do with that?!
My brother suggested my name right away and it wasn’t long before I was getting texted and pictures were being sent.
So there it is boys.
I’m sure there will be updates in the future once I start in on it.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, the wheels and tires are in pretty good shape and extra bonus goodness, the tires are filled with Calcium or something, There aren’t any air Schrader Valves or rubber stems sticking through the rims.
No flat tires, ever!
