Looks like it is a cross between a sprint car and a Cub.....

Reminds me of the first "tractor" that our company built.

There are a surprising number of those around here. They give me the willies.

Thanks for sharing that video, Stan! That's really neat! As far as the "G" goes, my wife has been wanting one of those ever since she got to drive one I was working on last Summer. They're neat but kinda odd at the same time.

My father in law once had a G. I planted several acres of corn with it once upon a time. Full set of planters and cultivators, manual lift front and rear, I was give out after a few hours on that time. But still a fun little tractor to drive. I would really love to have one again.

A neighbor up the road has two of them.
He hopes to restore one or both, one of these years, ...in his spare time :lol: .

They were as common as cubs around here, in the 60's. A lot of vegetable growers used them to cultivate. The G's, and the vegetable growers, are pretty much gone , now. Ed

Truck farm around the corner still uses one to cultivate his fields. It's a strange thing to watch them operate will you are trying to drive :)
