I'm going to look at a panzer for $375.00 and a power king for $400.00. The panzer ran when it was stored in a barn 2 years ago. The power king runs but carb leaks. Any openions on the 2?

There is a problem with people getting pit bulls and training them to be mean in this area. They will dump them or kill them if they can't get them to fight. This one is really small and non agressive. She only weighs 50 pounds at a year and a half. She has a bunch of scars on her head. and her fur is very thin fro, malnutrician. She is terrified of men. You can tel she was abused. She won't leave my daughters side.

i tell ya kent i can't stand it when people mistreat animals my wife would fight someone if she caught them hurting a animal.We've got 4 cats because of people dumping them and our dog to was dumped , some little girls brought her to us.You are a good guy my friend not to many around that gives a crap about anything anymore but themselves.Our dog is one of the smartest animasls i've ever seen not just saying it because she's mine she just really is.knows probably 20 toys by name puts them away and will go get the one you asked for,when it storms she goes and gets in the tub lol .The idiot that dumped her could have had a real fun life just being around her but he probably doesn't even like himself and i know I wouldn't like him!.I just never figured out people that would abuse anything for fun other than they are evil.Again you are a good guy my level of respect for you is at the top
! Makes me have a little hope when you hear stories like this KW

We are really involved with pit bull rescue because the shelters in Ohio kill all that go in no matter what. I use to thank they were bad dogs, untill we ended up with one on accident. I reallized that they are great dogs. Very easy to train because they love to please there owners. So you can make the agressive. To do this they use abussive training techniques. That thing that peaple say. It's not the dog, it's how they are raised. Is true. We have 3 of them and I wouldn't be afraid to leave them in a room full of 2 year kids. I wouldn't have a problem kicking someones but for abusing a animal. We had a chiwawa a couple weeks a go that the owner covered it in lighter fluid and set it on fire trying to kill it. His way of getting rid of it. It is the sweetest dog you could imagine. You wouldn't believe how many people wanted the dog when they heard what happened. Sorry to go off on a rant. I know I should be talking about tractors. I am planing on going to look at the panzer tomorrow. Maybe the power king if I can get ahold of the guy.

the bantam i would put back the rest i don't know man,I've got a lot of slack over the years,as you can see my tractors are hardly ever original.I just can't stand not putting my own stamp on it.I've always said garden tractors are not 57 vettes,tractors were done the way they were to be made to work not show,if they thought of them that way and they thought your normal joe would pay more for extra's they would have had a lot of chrome and some fins lol.If you are worried about value especially if your selling then you go original to satisfy the original nuts (which trust me more want original) I look at it to my liking never cared of what it's worth thats why i'm not brand specific,i've pretty much owned them all and still don't prefer one brand over another.Bantam's,copar panzer's I myself would put back,most other things i do what i want,i do usually stick to the kinda close shade colors tho,like the punkin is orange but way way more brighter than power king's reddish orange,i just didn't like that color man i ramble a lot on here lol

I do alot of cars stock every part but they are the cars that are worth big bucks as for tractors they are my toys I do them for fun. I have done some close to stock some far away the way i look at it is they are mine I will do as i please if the next guy don't like it he can always paint it any way he or she likes it!! as for the animals I am not a big fan of animals!!LOL I only have 30-40 birds a bunch of rabbits a pond filled with koi and A dog. heres a few pics my dog smiles for my son looks angry but never is!! We even got into hatching our own birds ! And the pond is pretty much finished . Hope you all like pics..

Love the pictures. Good to see animal lovers on here. Looks like a lot of back breaking work in the pond. I hate the bantam color but will probably do it and the panzer right. On the power king. I may end up using it in my business here and there, so I will probably do my own thing on it. Thanks guy.

in my opinion thats the right way to go kent.The power kings you can still find in every state with a little work the other 2 are gettin really hard.I've never seen a bantam or panzer up close yet and trust me i've been into tractors for over 25 years.Larry and i have pretty much the same outlook and we are all you got at the moment lol.I started out doing tractors exact to original and I never liked them.later i did thyem my way,to be honest when they sold it didn't seem to be a big price change either way,it adds up they are garden tractors people will still only give so much,i've always looked at it if i can break even i'm doin good of course labor always turns out to be free lol..

I think for now I'm staying with the flat black because it seam like every body trys to do the Tbirds original. I'm powder coating all the chrome black. And having the windows tented presidential black. Interior is also black. Originaly the car was that pukey green. If I ever sell it I might put it back to original. For now it' a toy. I didn't make it down for the Power King yet. May be this week end unless some one beats me to it.
