Classic car culture in Germany isn't just about Maybachs and original Audi Quattros. There's also this thing, the HR9 D2531 Lanz Bulldog Eilbulldog, which has to be the crispest tractor we've ever seen.
Since the Bulldog was built between 1921 and 1960, we'd wager that this is a fully restored model. It has amazing paintwork in sky blue with contrasting red for the wheel hubs. The interior is also immaculate and can be protected from the elements using a convertible tarp top.

But that's not even the half of it. The engine is, a single-cylinder 10-liter engine, with outputs varying between 12 hp and 55 hp, depending on the model year.

That's not a lot is it? But then this was one of the tractors that pulled the German economy through. Taking people to the fields, trailering livestock, plowing fields and more. The engine used a hot bulb ignition and could burn waste oils when there was no petrol around after the war.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
