Hi everyone. Ok...not sure if this has been done before...but I thought it might be fun. Well..we already know we have a common thread between us all...STAR WARS. But what I think would be interesting is to see what other types of hobbies, passions, and interests we all have. You know..what makes us tick. Sometimes all we see is a screen name. Its easy to forget that there is an interesting person behind that avatar.

Maybe you got a favorite pet...post some pics of it...tell us about it..a car..ect ect. You get the idea.

Damn Fetty...is that a real chopper? Thats cool as shit!
Well for me..I like to restore old tractors..garden tractors..in the summer. I tend to spend more time messing with the prop stuff in the winter on acount I'm couped up in the house all winter. Here are some pics of the different models that I have right now.

1979 john deere 200 series.
Image

1980's john deere stx38
Image

The stx has been my primary mower..its still like brand new..my grandfather gave it to me last year. The 210 was just restored this summer..I replaced the 10hp kohler engine with a 12hp kohler. I've just started to run her..got some tweeking to do but she runs like a champ.

These next ones are my future projects.

1975 mtd hydro 990. 16hp
Image

The 990 has a shaft driven 50" mower deck..3 point rear. I wanted one of these for a long time. finaly got it. :thumbsup

Next a 1969 sears suburban 12hp.
Image

The suburban is going to get a front loader. As soon as I get the time to begin fabbing it up..that may be a few years down the road.

The last one is my very first mower..I beat the living hell out of it..it just keeps going.

1990's mtd 600 series. 18.5hp
Image

Well thats my other hobby...I like to take every nut and bolt apart. When they are back together there is nothing about the machine I don't know.

Now..besides my wife my other love are my cats..I got 19 of them. They are more pampered than most peoples children. Spoiled rotten actually. I loves me cats. :lol

I used to really enjoy riding myself...that was some time ago though. Not sure my 40 year old bones would take it now. :lol

Love the tractors, it must be very satisfying to restore something. Thanks for sharing pics.

Here's my new hobby. Got it about three weeks ago...1976 Stingray :cool:
That's my son posing with her...

Image

Not much I need to do to her, just little stuff, which will keep me busy when not tinkering with armor.

Further proof that my life is stuck in the mid 70's. :thumbsup
