Thought of the day - Tractor Pr0n

And yes...that is a CLEAR engine cover....oooohh.

It's actually  a pretty cool idea.  A clear cover on a demo model so all the people walking by cane see the guts.  Is the inside really that different or special?  Probably not, but people get the sense it is...and that causes product desire.  Interesting to see how many other manufacturers copy John Deere's tactic.  Of course the fact that there is a John Deere in Home Depot is interesting unto itself.  I haven't researched the impact that it's had on the John Deere dealers but it is not hard to imagine that their residential business has fallen off sharply.
