Anyone up for a Turkey Day weekend romp at my place (Fossil Rok)?

I hear ya there. Bought 2 new woodstoves (you know, the 30% tax credit for "bio-mass" heaters) and got one installed and the other 90% done. Just trying to finish the hearth now, and then I'll be off the grid as far as heating goes.

Now this "no wheeler" issue needs to be resolved. Would suspension seats in an air shok'd buggy be back acceptable?

If you're riding an 8N, then you can stand being in a crawler.

Well The tractor seat rides ok. lol Besides it's a 53 NAA/Jubilee. (You know the tracker of the ford tractor line.. lol.. )

I am tempted at times to build a small single seater, just been sooo busy with the house. Got a lot done, but more to do. Alan moved back (with his GF and her two young kids so I am a sorta grampa.) and We have been showing the willys MB and doinf well at shows with that and running parades.

Ooooo... I almost bought a 1960 Fordson Dexta Petro (yup, a gas burner). Deal fell thru, but the owner didn't know what they had. This is uber rare, and worth ~$20K. Would have been a good 2K investment

Well, if you want, as soon as I sell the GV, I'm starting a Toy-based buggy build. We could dovetail the builds (no pun intended). 2 minds work better than one, brother.

Yup, I've gone over to the dark side. Okay, maybe the pale grey side, as Jeep is the Evil Empire.

But I will always have and love Samantha. i just need something I can get jiggy wit, and not feel like I'm destroying it.
