Very Confused... LOL.. Thank you though. You, as well as several others, have been very helpful.
Yes. I used to have a 65 Plymouth Valiant and my father and I built a 66 Plymouth Valiant from the ground up back in 2004/2005. Hot street car. We swapped the drums for discs! lol. Also crewed on for a 1964 Plymouth Savoy drag car running Nostalgia super stock for a year or two.
Anyway... For the most part all the terrain in this area is flat or made up of gradual rolling hills. No steep inclines. I am sure I would be fine with drum brakes on a tractor...
As for my budget, I think my wife would kill me if I spend anything more than $6500.00. This is a "starter" tractor and until it is justified (as being useful) I wont have the green light to spend much more money. Happy wife, Happy life principle. Plus, as I mentioned previously, most of it's use will come creating more hunting habitat FOR ME!! lol. She has no interest in the tractor only in the money I spend to buy it and maintain it.
Is there any truth to quality control taking a dive on the 1980's through min 90's tractors? Regardless of manufacturing. I know in the early 80's we started becoming a throw away society. I have also read that many of the major tractor manufacturers started outsourcing around this time and quality control started on a downward slope. This is specifically why I haven't looked at any of the 80's models. Budget as well. Newer usually means more $$$.
