The top ten reasons why the judges wouldn't let you participate in the stock antique tractor pull:
- Hey, this is stock! It came with that V8 in it!
- That "R" on my tires stands for "really old" not radial!
- Blue gas? We thought it was a pretty color!
- What wire hooked to my throttle?
- I always carry 100# weights in my pockets, really!
