About “WTF?!?!”

this isn't my car but i found it on some other forum, and figured i'd put it on here to show everyone

About “Massey Ferguson”

Acquired: 2003

This was my dad's tractor that I inherited. It's not a car (no, really!), but it is a great vehicle. Awesome to drive, and probably the only vehicle so far on this site with a PTO or a three point hitch. I also have a Ferguson back blade for it.

I've thought about restoring this machine, but it has a very nice patina, and I think a fresh paint job would take away a lot of its character.

In today's world of airconditioned, GPS controlled cultivation systems, this is a gentleman's tractor.

Resto update:

We built a new house in 2006-7 and it has a 300' crushed limestone driveway. No way am I using a snowblower on that! So in went the Massey for some overdue maintenance. Just a few things like a rebuilt motor; reworked head; rebuilt carb, starter, generator; new radiator, clutch, ring gear, water pump; oh, and why not a paint job? I'm sorry to lose the patina, but with the engine rebuild, at least part of it was going to be painted, and it wouldn't look right with a shiny motor and a weathered everything else. Eventually, it'll get that look back, because I own it to use it.
