Default Hart Parr named Goliath - Anyone name their old tractor?

I officially named my old Hart Parr 18-36 "Goliath". It was easy, I created a nice vinyl opaque decal 12"W X 18"H at Signs.com for $26.72 plus $6.00 shipping. There are actually three generations all named David slaying the great Hart Parr in the photo. Enjoy! RDM

Hadnt named all of ours but the 17-28 I call Adolph after the original owner and decide on Lester for the FTA because my Dad's uncle Lester was an M&M man and was always really crabby.
My wife thinks my W-12 goes by pookie.

I'm afraid a bunch of my old junk have names attached to them! Grey, Rusty and 2 are the Twin City tractors I have named! Don't ask me about these damned Ford model T's that I love too.
Nice 18-36!

The only names I've given anything with an engine are temporary names if they don't start..…..

Photo Re: Hart Parr named Goliath - Anyone name their old tractor?

sadly and maybe some what childish but I name almost all of the ones I restore. Some are named after the person that I purchased them from some after good friends and some as I see them? My latest was a late 10 - 20 Mogul that looking at if from the back is how I got a name for it. Do really like the Tractor but named it Fat Ass as you can tell by the photo

The GS&M Ideal is called Fred because it has Fred XIII stamped into the axle. Not sure who Fred was but he might have been someone at the Brantford works or at the delivery point in Manitoba. I guess we will never know? The Wallis is named Wally of course, but also because the former owner was named Wally.

Never owned an old tractor... or new one for that matter I have quite often named my cars and trucks, though. My old IH Metromite was called "Vincent" (Vincent van go). Called my Honda CRX "Elsie" (L.C. for little car). My F250 truck is called "Hoss" (self named from "whoa hoss!" from having weird brakes when I first bought it.)
My first VW bus was called "Whiskey" after Kirk Douglas' horse in "The Villan". First VW bug was called "Vibes".
