Thrifty Find ?? ~ Rusty Minneapolis Moline Z Antique Tractor ;)

Here it comes... the next Minni Z into the fold.   As you can see by the leaves on the trees, this Minni Moline arrived at our house at the end of September.  I know, I am late on posting this!  But as the guys were working on it last night, it dawned on me that I had forgot to put it up on the blog.  Just to busy trying to do too many things at once and forgetting half of what I am suppose to be doing! ;)

I am waiting to see what will leave out of my backyard to make more room...Hmmmm....

Have no fear, it is suspended with the chain from the wench! ;)  This beauty didn't come home in running order.   The last month has been spent in disassemble mode.  A list has been formulated, and the guys will be leaving on a parts road trip to find out how much it will cost to get this old machine in working order.  

My Farmer boy has decided that he will probably let this one leave the fold.  Depending on the cost of parts, he will either get it running or sell it as is.  Could this be true??  The possibility of actually letting one go???LOL

They obviously don't leave as often as they come in, eh? Well, get some Christmas lights on it and make it useful in the meantime! LOL

Great idea Annie... My kid would love it for this one, since it doesn't move...yet! LOL I will be afraid to tell him this idea. Would look great on our empty lots across the road. But knowing my boy, he'll put it on the little patch of grass that is smack dab in the front of my house. ;) LOL
