I finally uploaded a video showing the results of my T102 pulling tractor's chassis rebuild this summer. I documented all of the steps in pictures and video, and am working on that now. By request, I put together a mini video showing how to measure the rear end ratio and make a leak-free rear end gasket. The direct links are on the renamed section of this site - Restoration and Performance. The general youtube channel is www.youtube.com/panzerclub.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
I have uploaded a LOT of manuals, fliers and other information to the Manuals&Literature section. Feel free to distribute them to others, but please do so FREELY!
Found! T205 Copar Panzer in Argentina
I received an email recently from George Amido from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He sent me some pictures of what appears to be a 1957 T205 Copar Panzer.
George indicated he wanted to sell it, but I'm more interested in the history of how it got to Argentina. I read that there were Panzers shipped to South America prior to 1960, but this is the first time I've received confirmation that one still exists.
If you are a member of the Vintage Garden Tractor Club Of America, you'll know there were other tractors like the "Self Helper" tractor that was shipped to S.A. and Africa as part of missions to help the local people. The word was that when they broke down, they were left where they were because few parts existed in the areas intended to be helped. Oxen and other animals are more reliable for the tasks the tractors were intended for.
If you are interested in purchasing the tractor or want to contact George, he would like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would also be interested in how much it would cost to ship 500 pounds worth of metal back from Argentina...

Jorge Ariel sent me some pictures of his T120 that has been in his family since the early 1970's. Read his story in the Panzer Stories section of this site!

The new web site for the Vintage Garden Tractor Club of America is back up and running! Jim Cunzenheim does a great job of running the club, but nobody has taught him how to use a computer yet. The new site, thanks to Daryel Shaffer, looks great - check it out!
When I began as webmaster for Bill's Panzer Page back in 1996, I had no idea it would still be going strong all these years later. Over that time, I've made connections with people all around the US, Canada, UK, Argentina, New Zealand and South Africa.
It is my intent to provide future generations with history regarding these tractors, as they will certainly outlast everyone reading this.
Thank you for your support! Panzers do attract the nicest people...
