It's only polite...

to introduce myself before I expose you all to my strange sense of humor and irrelevant knowledge gained over the last several decades. I do promise to be civil. Really.

I've been looking for a fun and functional vehicle for my retirement years. Something I can take down a two-track to my favorite fishing holes without worry, maybe even pull a small boat. I remember the old IH Scout from my high school years, that thing was a blast! Vacuum wipers and all! Think the jeep is as close as I can get. One is on order, few more weeks and I'll be having fun once again.

From reading this site for the last couple of weeks, I've picked up on a lot of good information and the folks on here seem to be pretty doggone decent. Think I'm going to like it here.

Steve ..

Welcome to the Forum...from another one of the older guys.....we seem to be a dying breed.

Drove a Scout with a trailer in high school to deliver "Garden Tractors" for a local power supply garden store........put a Cub Low Boy with a 54" deck on the back of the trailer and it'll scare ya'!!!!!

For those of you that have no idea what I am talking about please go back to the first line about, "another one of the older guys".

Not one of the old guys haha but I almost bought a scout in high school. Guy said it was in good shape, I think we had a different definition of the word "good"

Thanks for the welcome folks.

JP2611, I pulled a small covered trailer with the Scout. That's why I mentioned the vacuum wipers... Trying to stay with traffic, my right foot was always firmly planted in the firewall which left no manifold vacuum to drive the wipers on those many rainy days. Got used to lifting that foot when I absolutely had to see, watch the wipers do their frenzied flipping' for a couple of secs and then back on the gas.
MoeBigs, I never saw a Scout in good condition. They were fair to middling straight from the dealer.
Gunmn74, I'd post in your thread but I'm afraid I would catch grief from you guys wondering why I was posting pictures of bait!
See you all on the forums and maybe on the trails.
Steve ..
