    Default Who makes a purple tractor?

    Saw a truckload of new compact tractors going the other way on the Interstate today... whizzed by too fast to catch a name. Well... not exactly purple, but maybe grape colored... much darker than the blue on the NH's (no offense intended if anyone is an owner [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]). Is it one of the "other" brands? Any ideas?

    I was actually considering getting some of that color powder for our implements until you mentioned the Barney thing.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I buy the filters from the dealer, but I have been using Castrol 10w40. I have been changing my oil every 100 hrs. I am thinking of going with Shell Rotela (sp?) as it is specificly for diesel engines.

    Ed,

    I'm not picking on your tractor or Barney here. In fact, I just bought a Kenworth T600B I've been christened "The 'Barney' Truck" as it's two tone purple. I don't have it cleaned or de-lettered yet or I'd send you a picture of it.

    A good friend of mine and her husband have a bright purple airport shuttle type bus that's long been known as "The 'Barney' Bus". The bus was used to shuttle customers between three Gentlemens' Clubs they own. Of course, it has the clubs names and large logo prominently displayed in silver on each side. [smile}

    One of the funniest stories I've ever heard involved that bus. My friend was taking her young daughter and some of her daughters' friends and their Moms to the annual Shrine Circus here with a block of tickets she'd bought at a charity auction. Someone they knew had a limo service and took all eight of them out in a super stretch limo. Pretty cool. huh?

    Well, the limo was busy when the circus ended so the driver grabbed the only other vehicle that would accomodate that many people. Yep, he pulls up in front of the coliseum to pick up these kids and their Moms in The Barney Bus-complete with logos! My friend said she had never been so embarrased in her life!
