My neighbor down the road sells and parts out things on Craigslist all the time,  So 4 years ago he has the Wonderboy  For Sale in the top of the picture  so I go Look at it and I say no I don't want it, don't need it and I don't have Room.  He says $50 so I say Sold and Bring it home.

5 Days later He has the 2010 For Sale so I go Look at it and I say no I don't want it, don't need it and I don't have room. I think we settled on $60  so I went and got the 920 and trailer and brought it home. No need to Strap it down with the flat tires.

So I wash it , remove the Ropes, Cables and homemade Lift lever.

I park it in the Back Corner of the Garage and it becomes a storage area.

Fast forward about 4 years and I'm walking behind it and I decide to Check the Serial number so I wipe the Tag, look at it and read the serial number....

Then I lick my Finger and wipe it again to see this. 4 years and never knew I had it.

Are there any dealer stickers left on it?  Just wondered if the tractor has migrated or if the dealer is still around.  Very cool, glad it is in good hands now.  That is a neat piece of history.
