I had to drive within five miles or so of Bill's place today so I drove by to see him. Found him working hard as usual. He has a garden tractor of a kind I've never seen, A PANZER. Neat machine-no telling when that thing was made.
Bill cranked it up and ran it for me---darn thing takes off like an ATV. If he put it in third gear he could probably run down a rabbit.

He's got a green thumb, too. His tomato plants and peppers looked good--I came away with a sack of tomatoes, including a couple of handfuls of yellow pears, in my opinion the best-tasting of the salad tomatoes.

Thanks, Bill

Wreck; that's it---according to the articles I could find on the net that is one of the earliest models made, 300 of them in the first run.

Go to U Tubes, and type in Panzer tractor plowing. Theres a place where they had only Panzers out in a field plowing.
They kinda remind me of a little mini dozer dragging a ripper. They don't wanna let anything stop them....

I've never seen one of the three wheel ones.. Now that's even cooler lookin..
