Hello, I have been to Lloyd's  place several times , and he has been to mine.  It's always a time for good conversation.  I have also wandered around a few tractor shows with him and his wife. Good people!!

 

Thanks Ken in Mi

Tom we got home around 10 pm Saturday, got the tractor, what a trip, I'll have to tell ya about it some time.

Also met Jack Cobb in New Philadelphia Oh. another very nice gentleman, just sorry I didn't have more time to talk with both of you.

Always a pleasure meeting someone I've only spoke to on phone, It's what makes this club so great , for the most part great people

Wiz, I was lookin but ended up building another pulling tractor .

First picture is tractor I bought and second is new tube chassis everything is going into.

This is my love/ the fabrication part of anything I attempted to build, and of coarse the finished product

Been slowly selling off a few items to finance.

Original plan was to build a 4 wheeler like Stephan did only different sheetmetal

Back in the pulling arena Lloyd?

Yes, my fatherinlaw has  two with bike motors and he's 82 so told wife we would do it again so she can spend more time with him, she' a definite Daddies girl.

He has one with 2 x 350 Hondas and other with 1000 KZ, this is what we call Zinger class allowed 2500 CC, and 1400 lbs.

I'm sure I could come up with something to work it up or just set and nail the throttle a few times.

Did I ever tell you that we got close to 50 milk crates full of taters, Llama manure really worked

Yes , give me a bit and I'll post some

Got the rollcage partially welded up , run out of wire happens everytime right after welding shop has closed.

Finished up the steering , still have a lot of work to do but were gaining.

Hope no one gets upset that it's not Simplicity or Allis related.

There are Welders & there are fabricators.  I can weld, but you are a true fabricator.

I am not good at either one. :(

Looks more like a rail ( Dragster) then a tractor to me.O.o

First want to thank everyone for nice comments.

Wiz, it's a modified mini or as our local club calls them, Zingers not sure how or why they call them that.

Allowed up to 2500 CC bike or car engine, 6ft wide by 8ft from center of rear axle to farthest point forward, 1400lb with driver

Was considering orange but son wants his orange and I don't like being the same as others, granddaughter says pink or magenta, she has a way of winning out.

This was our Blown SBC, it is magenta, bubblegum pink in sun light changes to purple violet after dark under lights ( I built it from ground up also )

These look way to fast to be going that slow. Looks like a very expensive hobby.....but loads of fun.

Ruffly 15-20 second, 300 ft ride, quite the rush . Things happen real quick

I'll probably have between 6-7 Thousand invested
