Ford 7000 Michael Keaton's ranch next door owned it so dad and grandpa told me I was running the bat mobile tractor. I took it when we sold that Montana ranch it started when nothing else would in the winter. Eventually sold it to a coworker he loves it 6k hrs and running like a top

My Favorite tractor was my dads IH 656 Hydro on the feeder Wagon. burned a gallon of oil for every tank of diesel, but I never got over listening to that run every morning and every evening to feed the cattle.

Have 2.
An International 300U
As well as an International 460 Diesel.
Learned to drive the 300 when I was 7. Picking stones and roots. I have the one I grew up with, and two more. Love those tractors.

Mine was a MF35 Deluxe.  This was my Great Gandfather's tractor and the first I learned to drive.  I still have it to this day and still use it; great little tractors.

I would have to say my favorite tractor growing up was our ford 2600 diesel. I remember every spring and every fall tilling our 20 acre field with a 7ft 3pt disk. No cab, no radio. Even though it would take me about a good 8 hours to cover the whole field, and if it was hard soil and dry that year I would have to go over it twice to get a decent seed bed. I did this from the age of 8 to 19, then the field was passed down to me and now I work it with a JD 5100e with a cab and a 12ft pull type disk. even though it was not to much fun with the old ford, I will always remember it. I also just bought the tractor from my dad and I just got done with fall tillage, with the old 2600. I just wanted to bring back old memories. We now have 8700 hours on the tractor, with I have never heard of a 2600 with that many hours on it, it is just built like a tank and keeps trucking along.
