I'm a 100 percent tractor person. When I was a teenager in the mid-1940s we had a Massey-Harris no. 81 and a Farmall H. The 81 had custom rear wheels and oversized front tires. The tractor would go places horses couldn't. A few years ago, I came up with the bright idea of making a small tractor/riding mower with two engines. It is made out of a 1967 Mustang riding mower and a 1970s Ford riding mower. It has a Simplicity garden tractor deck on front.
