    Default 60 year old 8N verses 60 year old car. 8N wins!!

    Man I had fun yesterday. It was the most fun seat time I've had in a few years.

    We're cleaning up an old home site on my brothers ranch trying to scrap all the metal.

    There was an old 40's model Chevy upside down with a hackberry tree growing up the middle of it.

    I thought to myself "this could be fun?"

    And it was!

    I used the box blade and backed into the car from various angles till it finally tore free of the tree.

    Then I pushed it around with the front bumper, tied it to the box blade and hauled it up to the road where we cut it up with an ax.

    That was a lot more fun than the blading I did the rest of the day.

    Enjoy the pictures.

    Them old tractors still like to work.

    Funny thing is.. you see a 50-60 year old beater car that still runs for sale and it's 50$.. you see a 50-60 year old beat up tractor.. and if it still can run.. it's worth 1500-3500$.. likely as much or more than when new in adjusted dollars.. etc.

    Ductape,
    No, but thought it would be fun to see it take a spin around the tree!
    Too bad I did not get to see it
