It looks like there are towels on the tractor?  Maybe he hadn't finished drying it off after washing it?

I'd give the second ad "two" thumbs up  666

Someone needs to call him and ask if the extras go with the tractor.  Maybe it is like Menards, with their bag sales, anything you can pile on the tractor goes with it?  It does amaze me how some guys (or gals) show things that they guarantee are well maintained and in good shape, laying under piles of junk.  I once saw an Allis B farm tractor for sale, said running condition, and the rear tires were about 20% sunk into the dirt floor of the shed it was in, and the shed had collapsed onto the tractor.  Amazing!

We have a local JD guy here who always had ads for his GT's, and the main picture was a bikini gal practicing some sort of stretching on the tractor.  I ended up over there once, picking up Simplicity wheel weights.  I saw all the JD stuff in his barn and asked if those were his ads on craigslist with the model.  He said "yeah, that's my wife.  I told her it would help sell off my tractors".  He said the amount of email he got was amazing.  Half were folks complaining about the 'nudity' and the other half were perverts.  His prices seemed to guarantee none of them would be buying his JD's, but he posted those ads with his wife in them for ages.

Maybe the wife said "Put that ---- thing out for sale - you don't use it enough", and he said - "Okay".       Lol.
