That's a good idea about a picture of my tractors, will take some doing but might try to get them all corralled some day for a photo op.

That's why I'm taking my 71 656 and not the 41 M, tires aren't real good on the M, engine has been overhauled and converted to 12 volt so it's just the tires. I run an auger at the bin site in the fall with it so it gets a pretty good workout.

We've gone on the WNAX/Tri-state old iron tractor ride. It's a two day ride--about 70 miles each day. It's fun but my M left me in Nebraska the last ride we took. Had to haul it home. Can't really trust it anymore--I'm looking for a mechanic (I'm married to one!!) LOL

I think it would be fun if you posted pictures of your tractors in the team photos.

My good friend convinced me to join him and 85 others this Aug. for the 6th. Annual two day Tri-County tractor ride. Really looking forward to it, will take my 71 International 656. Have a 41 M but the tires aren't good enough for that long a ride. Will let you know how it goes.

We belong to a tractor club. There is nothing but older tractors, a lot of them all shined up, some not so shiny, but we go on tractor rides and get-togethers throughout the year. You hear a lot of those pop-pop's because a lot of those are the old John Deere 2-cylinders.

Wonder what ever happened to my granpa's 1949 FarmAll. One of my childhood memories is riding behind Grandpa on the hay rake. I knew when to trip the rake and leave the hay in long furrows for the baler to eat up later. emoticon

Our neighbor came by today to scrape the moss off our driveway with his new 1962 tractor. He was so proud of it. I loved the sound of the tractor. You just don't hear that hard working pop pop pop sound anymore.
