My wife says I have an addiction :lol: , but my kids are out of college so now I have my allowance back :D , I only buy the cheap stuff, can't afford the restored ones and probably won't get around to restoring the ones I already have :( , my kids have no interest in them, which saddens me, but it's about all I spend my money on, still have to pick up a 12 pack for the weekend :D , but I'm not the kind of guy that comes home from work and hits the recliner. Maybe I do have an Addiction :lol: , but It's a good addiction to have, at least I think so 8) . Rick, I think I have 15 M151s but only 5 of them run.

Are they skid steer tires or 4 ply tractor tires? I tried skid steer tires on my Jeep once, not worth it, too hard.
