These are pictures of the same tractor.
The first taken in 1974 and the last one in 2012.
Both pictures are of me sitting on the beast.

Since I looked a lot like you did in the first pic, I won't say anything about how "cool" we thought we were but how goofy looking back. A flight jacket that's 2 sizes too small... Really? :)

BTW, you should quit riding the clutch (2nd pic). :17875::wink::hammer::notthatway::yankchain:

That horrible jacket fit perfectly just a few months before. That year I went from 5'8" to 6'3"!!! I think the noise I made growing kept the neighbors awake at night. Lol!

Yea, I kind of remembered that but I never got much seat time in one. We had a JD630 but being a somewhat small kid, they didn't like me on that one. That makes no sense to me now that I'm older because instead of the smaller 630, they put me on the 4020 which is twice the size.

That old girl is in GREAT shape. Good pics. Always funny to see the different hair styles of the times. They say us guys finally find a style we like and we stick with it no matter what the fads are . Thank god I did not stick with the big hair 80's style. :yum:

I didn't have much of a choice. My career dictated a regulation haircut and it kinda "grew on me". Now that I'm retired and returned to the ranch I can grow back the locks. Ya right!

Nice little H, what year is it? I had an 1945 H with electric start and lights but no fenders.

Ooohh Electric start. I would have killed for that. Would have saved me from always parking it on the crest of a hill.
I think this on was a 1942 or 43. Yours looks great!
