Thanks Firebird, we are still debating wether or not it was an impulse buy!
We've looked at a few but not seriously, this I hope was just meant to be. Thank you for the info on pricing. Sorry I posted it but wasn't sure if it was a decent deal or not. We are tickled! Bobby Ray went over every inch of it with DH, let us know what he'd done to it, pointed out a few flaws and threw in the rear shocks that hadn't been put on yet. He kept saying he wasn't going to lie to a neighbor, afraid we'd show up at his house late at night! How funny, we are sooo not those kind of people, but our other neighbors are, LOL!

What kind of tractor did you get??

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

definately a good price. theyre great for workin around the farm, and when your done, it'll be a fun truck to drive into town. ive bought a lot of vehicles, and the best ones ive bought, ive got when i wasnt even lookin lol.

i got a 52 farmall super c. it'll be a decent light duty tractor, but mainly a restoration project. i stopped by a neighbor's house down the road yesterday to introduce myself since i got this place a couple months ago and just got around to meetin everybody. its an older guy and invited me up on his porch to have a beer lol. while we were talkin i noticed the old farmall by the barn and asked him about it and was tellin him i'd been wantin to restore one for a while. he said he'd take 500 for it. had the original owner's manual too
