Just a note: 

anyone wanting to go thru Chicago to either Michigan or Wisconsin with a trailer

9 tolls @ $39.70

I've always took 80 to 39 north and only paid one toll $4,55, return we decided to take 90 to 355 south, after figuring up tolls and time spent starting and stopping believe it just as fast and not to mention the traffic

Lloyd - now you must have more loaders than tractors!  LOL!

No still more tractors, someday I'll count and see where we set as far as tractors

A couple are only short term, if you can believe that

ShaunE = 76 Corvette in background?  Looks a little nicer than my white 77.

'74.  

49,000 original miles.  Needs a rear bumper cover as the old one is degrading to the point where its like peanut brittle.  Just a simple L-48 but it's a four speed car.

Sold a '56 WD-45 & a '53-1/2 Super M to buy that car.  Family likes this better.

Shaun:  98,000 on mine. Had it 36 yrs. Was our 2nd vehicle for many years til kids couldn't fit behind seats!

Nice!

They are fun & I don't care what negative things people say about corvettes.  Bottom line is everyone turns their heads when you drive by in one. I especially like the C3 style because I love the curves!

No way.  You could always buy a Che-Vette instead of a Cor-Vettefm

He-He, would like to have another Chevelle though, think I keep with the tractors, like Josh I can afford them

I am 6'4" and 250...I want a Vette but there is NO WAY for me to look good getting in and out of these cars. I need to fall onto the ground and then stand up.  Instead of impressing the ladies all I do is make them laugh! :S

I get it! My son is 6'4" & wears a size 15 shoe!.  He crams himself in that car & has barely enough room to use the clutch, brake & gas with those feet!

You hit the nail on the head about falling on the ground to get in them.

Try that loader yet Lloyd?  Interested in hearing your thoughts after you compare.  

You are a lucky guy to have had the chance to meet shaun.  I'm not sure how you ever got out of there though...our 'hey, got a minute?' phone calls last an hour+!  4i

Going to swap them this weekend. Will try and have info, 

Shaun bought the loader for me, was just out that way not to long ago to Smilin Sams

will be making another trip back out but after the winter is gone, unless there's a buy I can't pass up.

We have those conversations and love everyone, most times I'm the one not wanting to hang up.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
