    Lionel you are the man. No project to big to handle. No basket case to confusing to figure out. Look is that a 646 or a 648, only a Case Tractorman knows for sure. I'm sure with you at the helm this will be another interesting post.

    Keep the Peace

    I am heartened to see other Caseophiles drive what many would say are ridiculous distances to save a machine (in January no less).

    A big tip'o'the'hat to Lionel for 14 plus hours each way - maybe a record?

    Thanks guys,, the owner came back to me late afternoon yesterday at 5:00 PM. Seems like #2 purchaser was jerking him around a bit, with a story from earlier that he was on his way, then his truck broke down, so he couldn't make it. So, he texted me and we worked out a deal that we could both agree with.

    He's going to roll it into a storage shed pending a pickup at a later date.

    Distance wise, oh what a guy will do for that case tractor, but not my furthest one,, they've all been a fair distance though, Some I drove to pickup, some hitched a ride from a Kijiji add, and one, came via Canadian Freightways. (After looking at the distances, a guy should just check himself into an asylum someplace!) Oh, as well, last summer, a failed attempt,, drove to Westakewin for that guy, "just south of the 648's location by 40 minutes or so", and left it where it sat!

    Way to go Lionel!!! I have several sets of engine tins if you decide to restore it (providing the BF-MS sets will fit?) Looks like you were out of projects anyways!!

    Awhile ago some guy had a Case GT locally. He was jerked around by the guy who paid for it. Always an excuse why he wasn't coming to get it. The guy asked me if I was still interested, which of course I said sure. I was getting ready to leave to go get it and the guy txt me and said the buyer was coming to pick it up. He later said the buyer was a jerk when he came to pick it up. He told him he changed his mind and he wasn't going to sell it after all and then sell it to me. The guy called the cops on him saying he had a bill of sale from him and then he had to sell it. Crazy people out there, beware!

    Our local Police Dept offers a "Craigslist Exchange" service. If you meet the buyer/seller at the police station and let the dispatchers know, they will monitor the transaction through the building camera system.

    ALWAYS good to have it home. But the weather up here has to cooperate too. We don't want to see Lionel's Ford in a future episode of Highway Through Hell!
