Smile New here, Loving the site.

Hello Everyone, Pretty cool site. Im an avid John Deere 2 banger collector. Everything from the real deal to the 1/16th scale models. Not religous toward any color, as I have owned the Red, and orange.

Welcome to the Stak! We're a diverse bunch of oddballs but we're mostly harmless.

Take care - Elden

A diverse bunch of oddballs but we're mostly harmless! I like that description. I think I will get a tee shirt with that on it to wear to the next engine show. Welcome aboard. Keep us posted on your progress.

If you need parts, used or new, look up " detwilertractor.com" they would be able to make those front wheels look like new..

Welcome!

It is a great site. I never get bored of it. I think the two big reasons is the diversity of topics and all the great minds on board!

One other board that I hang out on says something like "We're all here because we're not all there" or something like that. Seems to apply to every place I go.

Fred:

Hmmm ..... All I got was fried bologna sandwiches and grits. How do you rate chili?

I guess we'd better behave - we've almost hijacked the thread!
