New Tractor...Well, It's New To Me. It Was A Craigslist Find

Frequent bus riders will know that I came into possession of 1947 8N Ford tractor last November. I really didn't want it but I was owed some money and it appeared that the only way I could get my money was to take this tractor. Which I did, I brought home, powerwashed it and could never get it started again.

It spend the winter in the Private Mechanic's garage getting overhauled. Now, I have a very nice tractor that needs new rear tires.

This afternoon, I found this nice tractor on Craigslist at a very affordable price. It had two new rear tires on it. So, I bought the tractor for about what I would have paid for two new rear tires. Plus, I got a finish mower and a box blade.

Soon, with a litte paint, I will be keeping up with Brother Tom (aka the Horsefarmer)and his green machine.

To those who ask why do I need two tractors, my answer is for the same reason tv on the back porch.

Here are some photos of a tractor I sold last October.

Green acres is the place for me.
Farm livin' is the life for me.
Land spreadin' out so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.
