Talking Bought a new Ford vehicle...well..lol

Hey guys,

So..i love ford..end of story.. lol

I went home for xmas for 2 weeks, which is a 23hr drive from me, and ofcourse i took my rig

When i got home i relaxed for a few days and my mom and i went for a drive, we live in a remote logging camp..50ppl there on a good day,and you find some interesting stuff kicking around once and while..

GUESS WHAT I FOUND...

An old Ford lawn tractor...thats right a lawn tractor..lol this thing was a beast, in awesome shape just sitting at one of the neighbors houses, Big blue with massive FORD written on the lid..i made the joke of how id love to have that in my yard to my mom..she call me a nut case.

When i got home a few weeks later she gives me a shout..says hey remember that tractor..i ran into the owner he said he'll sell it..this almost took my breath away..it works 100% im like how much..she replies with..ummm couple cases of beer?..i was in shock..she made my day! lol

So my mom needed a few parts for her old 323..i traded her a mirror and a window molding for the price of a couple cases of beer which bought me a ford ride on mower lol!

So coming to me is my lawn tractor..this thing rules.. built FORD tough and it shows it..comes witha trailer to boot! ill post pics up as soon as i get some..lol

When I was a kid my best friend's grandparents had a big ford riding mower. Foot controlled hydrostatic, which was years before John Deere started pushing the hydro in their lawn and garden tractors. That blue is awe some. I always wanted one of those blue diesel fords the state road crews used.
