    I live in a town where farming is the main business and there are heaps of tractor collectors in the town and what do they send me 2 tractor part works ,do they not look at locations when sending these things out ,obviously not as i have heaps of surfing magazines and not a wave within 1000ks

    Shaun, I recieved two and both were damaged- not that I’m in a farming town. We’ve got heaps of surfing mags and are 5mins to the beach and yet they don’t sell that well.

    I think Newsagents should have more control on what they recieve.

    Michael – funny how things work out, eh?
    Maybe you need to be four minutes and 55secs closer to the beach LOL :-p
    Ours do well, being 5 seconds from the beach, but I can’t see tractors putt-putting out our doors until they’re parceled up in returns boxes.

    Location is a double-edged sword, it seems.

    thats all pretty funny ,oh well dosn’t really matter i suppose, i am going to win the lotto tonight and someone else can deal with the tractors

    This first tractor should do well with sales.

    The grey fergie is a very popular small tractor in Australia.

    If you’re quick, you might be able to find one if any left, before agents get them parcelled up this morning.

  • 14 Grace // Oct 15, 2009 at 10:25 PM

    Hmmm, obviously someone bit off more than they can chew when they decided to sell this collection. Can they not sublet some of their work out to fill all of these backorders. I want the entire series, but my newsagent just put her hands up in the air and shrugged!

    Looking to purchase
    No.19 from the collection


  • 16 Mark // Aug 28, 2010 at 6:14 PM
