Bob’s Bad Binder

My name is Bob Weber. This is my site, and Bob’s Bad Binder is my truck.
Bobs Bad Binder
I grew up on a farm in Northern Colorado, and most of our equipment was made by Farmall and International. When I was a kid my grandmother worked at the post office delivering mail for a rural route. She eventually purchased a right hand drive Scout 800 for mail delivery. Since then our Scout fascination has grown. The family currently owns two Scout 800 2wd rhd, four Scout II rhd, four parts machines, two of them Scout IIs and two Travelers, Dad’s Scout II Rallye and, of course, Bob’s Bad Binder.

My Scout II was really a product of my father’s ‘encouragement’. We found it in Fort Collins, the advertisement said it was missing and wouldn’t pass emissions. I paid $400 for it and drove it home. Once we got it home we realized it had a dead cylinder and needed an engine rebuild, and things just escalated from there. It’s now been 10 years, many thousands of dollars and many thousands of hours of labor later, and it’s not even close to being done.
