It will be fun to see what the deere lovers say about that. I have seen craftsmans painted to look like deeres and the deere lovers get bent out of shape. Don't know why, Isn't imitation the best form of flattery? Or is it a deception thing?

Sorry Ed-

I don't think it is flattery... more like fantasy... when a person has to go out and buy a real, good, tractor then paint it and pretend there is a good JD made. I'd call that denial. Too bad it is such an ugly color! I'd like to see the color in a bout a week...after the poor thing turns red from shame.

He probably did it to the high wheeler (more visible) so people could see he was the only one who had a Deere that didn't break down.

:^)

I like the color. But then, I think all tractors should be green. Sure to start a conversation amongst Deere owners. I like the Case/Ingersoll tractors except for the color. I'm not real partial to the orange/red they use.

Bontai-

Yes, I saw that. Am a bit surprised as no JD guy should want it, and as for a Case man...green? It is a 70's model too...so what's up with that?!!

Well if it runs good, it is still lower then it's probably worth. Looks like they did a nice job[other then the color] so the same in Case colors would go for over a grand.

I'm a JD guy, and if it was local and I had the money, I'd buy it just to goof on the purists and folks with no sense of humor. I'm considering painting my truck green and yellow. I gotta paint it something because of the rust, so why not? I could even change the lettering on the back from Dodge to Deere pretty easy. If we can't have a little fun at no one's expense, we are missing out on oppertunities to laugh and have a good time. Just popped in my head, what if the guy had a whole fleet of Case tractors and one was painted like a Deere, one like a Farmall, one like an Oliver, etc. Why? Maybe he liked the delusion he had a complete set, or maybe just a frustrated artist. Whatever the story, as the new owner, you can make up any story you want to entertain people.:secret:

Yep, looks like you guys are going to be right. He offered it to me for $700 right off...looks like I should have gone over and taken it...But then again, green with my orange?...too much Halloween for me. LOL

"It is" pretty cool looking, if it was done right. FYI...I don't really hate JD's...just their old cracking hoods...and I like CC, Toro, and Case/ Ingersoll better. I do believe JD's are hyped way above what they actually are, quality wise, for the money. IMHO
