    Man Cave Upgrades
    Last night was a busy night out in the shop with some nice heat and humidity added in the mix.

    First and foremost, I feel very lucky to have been so fortunate to have a place to hang out.  The problem was it never was exactly right and I was cramped for space.  The barn was meant for the hobby, for my two kids to hang out, and place where the family could entertain.  Last night I was able to add some more decorations and get one step closer to my ultimate goal.  My wife has been out multiple times and it is becoming a place where my kids like to hang out as well.

    I have been extremely blessed with such a great place to utilize.  I am hoping that it will continue to be an area that we receive so many benefits from with our family and our tractor friends.  As I sat down last night exhausted from moving things around, I snapped a few photos while trying to take it all in.  I hope you enjoy them and understand that by no means am I trying to brag, but am very thankful for what gifts I have received.  I always enjoy sharing with those that have similar interests.

    Things are finally coming to an end.  With a bunch of mishaps, trials and errors, this machine is just about done!!!!!!!!!!!!  For a while, I thought we would never see the day. 

    We have had interruptions in regards to the summer, getting started back to school, and vacations.  But we have persisted and are just wrapping things up on this 2 year project!

    I am sorry that I have neglected to keep this thread going.  Time has been an issue, and the time I do have has gone directly to updating our club Facebook page found here:  https://www.facebook.com/HarrisonGTC

    I am excited for the kids and we are planning on getting some photos of the C-120 soon so we can finally find a new home for this beauty.  I can't thank the members in the Wheel Horse community enough for their support, encouragement, and praise for what the kids have been doing.  It has truly been a huge reward to me for having the opportunity to work with these kids.

    I have a video from last night and will try and get it posted of the tractor running correctly for the first time.  What a glorious sound that was!!!!

    I will be checking back in here real soon.....be sure to check back!

    They don't have to be show quality, and they don't have to be red.  We don't discriminate against any of the old machinery.  The more to look at the better.  It is nice to sit back and appreciate the design of each of these machines and hear some of the stories that go along with them.

    Yeah Don it is kind of a bummer since these were actually marked.  I have the gentleman so name on the hood so maybe with some deep investigation I could maybe, and I said maybe, figure out what number it is in the group of 200.

    I feel very fortunate to say the least.  It isn't perfect, but like I said about the first one.....it exists in my collection now.

    is there any way to determine which number this one is?  It does not have the number on the hood plaque and the id tag (sticker) is faded and unable to be read.
