So I saw an old John Deere mower sitting in front of this house all summer and during the beginning of winter so me and my dad drove up to the house and asked the owner how much she wanted for it, she said 60$, we said 40$ and she said "take it I want it gone"
here are some pics the day i brought it home

So it happens to be a 1982 John Deere 108 with a 319cc 8hp B&S engine and ive got big plans for this machine
when I actually made some space to work on it I had to move it but it didn't run and the transmission had 2 holes so I used my offroad lawnmower and my lawnmower trailer to move it like a mexican (I'm mexican btw)
here are some pics

Ive thought about holding off on doing anymore work on it so i could use it as my 2016 build off project which if i do that i'll probably just start getting parts and waiting for the build off to begin so i can proceed with this project.
