      what I heard "It's sooo much easier for me to justify a tractor to my friends.... please god, get that huge ugly truck out of the yard. You are too weird for words some times. That's why I give you "that look"... you need help."

      we get it. We probably get the same look. If she looked at the wrecker and started drooling a little, we'd seek help for Kerri.

      I know you love the truck, but I still have to vote tractor.

        Wrecker! Much more useful. Put a snow blade on it if necessary.

          Where are you going to store this stuff?

          Do you have to move before you can build a garage?

          What are the codes in regard to those "car tents" leaving projects sitting outside sucks - and having the weather dictate when you can work on stuff sucks more.

          I thought Buford was going to be the long haul cruiser - but now it's getting a BBC.

          If you sell the wrecker - what are you going to tow a tractor around with? I suppose air bags and a hitch and Buford could handle a smallish tractor / trailer.

          What class would the wrecker fit into at the pulls???
          There's always something new to learn.

            I'm with Dan, Wrecker all the way.......At least with the wrecker you have a roof over your head if it rains...........

            All I know is I'm glad my wife doesn't make me choose between cars, all she ever says is finish the cars you have now before you buy another, but it's never you have to sell one to get another........

              Keep the wrecker and do exhibition pulls with it.

                No one is making me choose anything, but I am not going to make my house look like a wrecking yard either.

                If I trade the wrecker on a tractor I can tow the tractor with my pop's truck and trailer or my dad in law's combo. I don't want to ditch Brutus, but having an old farm tractor to use for pulls during the summer (and there are a shocking number of them within a 100 mile radius of my house) would be neato and if I can score one that comes with a plow blade of removable bucket loader on it, I could be Mr. Plow again in my neighborhood over the winter.

                Just thinking out loud. I thought it was cool she brought it up!

                  I personally, would rather have a tractor anyday. So much back-breaking work can be done with even a small tractor!
                  As I have grown older, I have learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

                    She thinks your tractors sexy.


                    I bet you would get more fun out of an old JD/Oliver/Ford/IH/Farmall than you ever will with the wrecker...the wrecker is cool but man, the fun potential with the family at he pulls, plus the boys could pull in a few years...memories...dude, I'd be on that like stink on shit.

                      I think that is one of the reasons she was into it, because there were a bunch of youg kids pulling. Like this guy...

                        Is that Pun intended??

                        I say keep the Wrecker and buy her the Tractor........ This is what I did with the '71 GMC, it is "her truck"........

                        And I ask what would be the bigger conversation piece, the Wrecker or a tractor.......Unless the tractor you want to get is something special, like the wrecker is I'd stick with the wrecker......

                          You think your old Worthington would be towing your broken Caprice home today?

                          Turn Brutus into a pulling truck. HA!!!

                            I learned to drive on an old Allis. Mom's got pics of me at age 6 driving it with a big ass hay trailer behind it...

                              Why not the best of both worlds? Keep the wrecker and get THIS tractor. From an email I got from a guy in Ontario.

                                Braub, you like tractors. That's Okay with me. More importantly, it seems your old lady is Okay with it too. Go ahead, start looking and get yourself a tractor. If you think about it, certainly you can see that you deserve a nice tractor, and like you said, pullin' with it could be an exciting family activity.
