I hear you Hobo.
On the other hand, where do you quit? Diesel?
Independent pto? 16 forward 4 reverse? Shuttle shift? Loader capable hydraulics? FWA?
Cab with heat, air and windsheild wipers, satellite radio and CD?
Might as well sign on the dotted line for a new Kubby, NH or JD.
Many if not most of these guys are entry level tractor owners with their entry level Ns. They didn't know about live stuff or PS or differential lock.
Didn't know that the Ns were never Ford's best tractor - only their first (not counting the early Fordsons) And they do get a lot done with them.
One thing I don't understand are fellows who will buy a $1K N and spend another $3K "restoring" it. If they had known they could have spent that $4K to begin with and got a tractor with the features you mention.
But live and learn...
I'm always enthusiastic to see a fellow like Ken thinking about making the upgrade to a better tractor though.
The first time you jumped on your 3000 you just had to marvel at the live stuff on it after using an N and just making do with it's quirks and inadequacies.
