I don't own one, but the farmall 450 is right next to the 1206 for all time favorites (don't own that either). Following that, I'd say the 706/806 in wheatland form, 2+2. All of them look great, just if we're talking about favorites.

Well here she is folks , I put this together this spring in a few weeks after picking it up from my Case IH dealers salvage yard . It’s our new farm stock puller /3000 rpm class , it’s going to be labeled as a 1086 Red Power Special in memory of the one we had on the farm back in the day . I put a DT 466 in it , new TA for a 1586 /heavy duty pulling unit , along with fixing all the lights , tighten up the shifting all the small stuff it’s going in front  of the sand blaster today in prep for its new look ??

Mike I sold that tractor 7 years ago, a man made me an offer on it I couldn't refuse.  Been kicking myself for selling it ever since.

Truck spreader broke down so had to finish up with the 4166 and the Meyers M700.  Short haul less than 1/8 of a mile. 4166  doesn't  shift well with a load behind.

Think this is someone on this boards ?   Always partial to 460-560 paint scheme...  

Ive always thought the white 94 series case tractors with the orange rims were really slick looking.

 

That  one looks familure, ?  but I love the styling of these guys .  70A19348-0B9B-44CF-8563-FC5B540CDF79.jpeg.89ae67f044ae11ca31b8bdc68c7a0fc3.jpeg

I’m pretty biased but I think my ‘02 Peterbilt is one of the prettiest tractors I’ve seen. Wait,  was this only for farm tractors? $&@&#%#, sorry, I couldn’t resist.

I am kinda partial to the one 2 doors down!  But definitely wouldn't mind having the 1086/5088 tractor in my barn!!

Since IH OAK likes big tires, maybe someone can find the photoshopped picture of the articulated four wheel drive with 7 or 8 tires on each corner?  I can’t find it.

With all due respect, Mike, I’ll keep the Peterbilt. The first truck I drove was an R model Mack with a 237 hp Mack engine and a two-stick six speed Mack transmission with a silage box on it. I don’t remember the gear ratio that old girl had, but I think if I put it in low gear and dropped a cinder block on the throttle I could’ve jumped out of the cab and pounded a stake in the ground beside the front tire to make sure it was moving. High gear it would do 68 mph, but from 5 to 6 was a BIIIIG step. 
 

BTW, I did some mapping the other day. I have a sister who lives near Greytown, on the south end of the North Island. Turns out she’s only a few hours away from you. Maybe someday I’ll get out there to visit her. My Dad goes to visit about every year in January. She’s married to a farmer. Dad tells me it’s beautiful country but much different than Iowa.

How you been feeling? Peterbilts are sharp looking trucks I like the kenworth better though.

Been feeling pretty good, thanks. I’d say about normal again. Found out a couple weeks ago I’ll be on meds for the fungal infection in my lungs for another six months at least, terribly hard crap to get rid of. Thanks for asking. 
 

That truck looks black in that picture, it’s actually a dark purple. Black Cherry is what Peterbilt calls it. This picture maybe shows the color a little better. Just got home from Ft. Pierre.

Prayers and good luck getting over the infection.
