sixchows…

You know I always wanted one of these, outfitted exactly the way
this one is. But talk about room, this thing would need it’s own garage !
Not to mention the cost to transport. After seeing it last night, I made a
few calls this morning just to get an idea. Looks like around $1500 to
get it picked up and delivered here and the guy won’t really commit
to the price. He knows I'm just looking for an idea of what it would cost.
He said he it would depend on him having a load to take near there on
his way to get it. Otherwise a dedicated pick up would run more like
$2500. I think the tractor will go between $2500 and $3000 so that
could put the total delivered price at between $5000 - $5500.

BTW you and aguysmiley are killing me, between the both of you there’s
nothing left on ebay to bid on. You could have left me ONE of the signs. :lmao:

I got outbid in the last 20 friggin seconds! Snipers get on my nerves. (sorry sixchows)

I really wasn't going to bid any higher on it, but it's just really frustrating to lose it like that. Some people have to work ya know.

I know what you are feeling.
A while ago I got outbid on an HT-20 with a load of attachments
with 12 seconds left. By the time I rebid the auction was ended.

I should have PMed you, I would have gone MUCH higher on the sign

Well, that sign wasn't really what I was looking for. Since all my tractors are before the days of green and white. I deffinately would have bid higher if it were older. Kinda like that one sixchows is bidding on.

I always bid early, and bid what I'm willing to pay. I very seldom rebid. I introduced the magical land of ebay to my dad a few years ago. He build O scale trains. It didn't take him long to turn into a sniper. I always give him a hard time about it, but I've also let him bid on my account for me a couple times. I thought about having him bid on this sign for me, but he would have no way of knowing if he was bidding against you guys.

My quest for a sign continues though. I just heard about a guy that used to have a small dealership at his house.

Btw aegt, I have a solution to your shipping cost woes. Just find someone that will ship it to Indiana. It's a lot closer this way. I've made this offer before. I really wouldn't have a problem with "storing" it until you could come pick it up.:D

Guys
How would you feel about a "copy" of this sign? If I can get it that is. I'd be willing to have a sign maker copy it and send one to each of you guys.

aguysmiley..
Thanks for offering, I think I’m done for a while but will be trying to
pick up the Flail Mower, maybe a power broom, possibly a snow blower
potentially a back hoe…….

sixchows…
As a purest, I can understand you affection for the original older sign
(you even infected aguysmiley, he likes it too), but I wasn’t crazy about it.
I really liked the green one, it just looked good to me.
I emailed the guy and offered him 2X what he got it for, but no deal.

I think you have a great idea with the sign maker. I’ll bet the attachment
(red / white / black) logo could be made into a sign. Now that would look
really good hanging on the back wall of the garage.

Did you see that hat ? The guy could have at least cleaned it before he
took the pic’s. That was one funky looking (smelling ?) hat.

BTW..The “G” went right between my $2500 - $3000 guess. Ending bid
was something like $2700. If the buyer was local that’s a lot of tractor
and attachments for the money.

Same one. He even admits it. He does say he fixed the oil leak and changed a hydraulic line and sharpened the blades. Paid about $500 in shipping and the starting bid is/was $3499? makes me wonder though, did he really find out it was too big or did he find it has "bigger' problems?

Sixchows,

Have you got that sign yet? Thanks for the offer to make a copy. I'm still looking for an original. I was just kinda curious how your's looks.

Yeah I got that one and a wisconson engine repair center sign. Both look good. The wisc sign has a slight bend on one corner but I should be able to bend it back w/o cracking the paint. I'll post some pics maybe tomorrow?

Well the auction on the $4500 GK closed without a single bid offered.
Guess the $2700 GK is still the $2700 GK after all.

On a brighter note, I did get 2 of the signs I was after.
They should look pretty good on the back wall of the garage.
