Ferdinand Porsche did more than build the 911...

Hey not bad!

They had a couple of those four doors...panamerica? there. The wheels are so huge and the car is so long....reminded me of an suv built to look like a 911 on an SUV chassis.

A few days ago the wife was grumbling about moving to a new house. A nice place in Dallas is available for a little over $1.5 mil on .25 of an acre, but I found a place in Oklahoma for the same price with a nice home and some acreage. About 2,500 of them.

She wanted to know who would mow the lawn and I told her we would get a tractor. I didn't tell her it was one of these I had in mind.

And check out the horn. The same one found on Mercedes of the era and some Porsche 356.

I like the design, very Art Deco. The prow reminds me of some of the streamlined steam trains of the 1930s.

Lots of these tractors for sale in Europe. The going price for a fully restored unit is about $13,500.
