My uncle bought 2 5088 just before they went under hoping to support IH and keep them from going under ...  He said hope everybody else buys one to help support them. The dealership went under as soon as he picked up his tractors a week later when they announced the buy out. It was the last 2 tractors the dealership sold....They had the western interior !!

For some reason I like the looks of the open station, non ROPS 86 and 88 machines.  Also like the lines of a W450 and the red crawlers with twin stacks and/or headlights on top of the grille.

For me it's the 1206, 50-series, Boxcar Magnums, Deere 4320, and a large-frame 55-series.

806 diesel for me. Maybe just because this one's been on our farm since I was 11 years old. (1971). 

I have 56, 66 and 88 series here too, but  I have more seat time in this one.

OH you DO love to stir up controversy don't you?? 😰  Duck, high speed comments incoming.....

I''m in the minority that thinks the black stripe design looks weird.   Give me a 1456 or 1466 white panel any day.

I didn’t care for the Black Stripes back in the day when they were new. But the last few years they have finally grown on me. So much so that I would now prefer them over the previous white panel jobs.
