I have a 1952 Minneapolis Moline Z. My dad and I restored it a few years ago;

I have 11 tractors in my collection.

It's fun working on something that is not a computer.

Luckily, my brother kept the family farm, so I have a place to store them.

I got a "Dear John" letter one time....does that count? :wacko:

 

Seriously, that is a nice piece of American history.

On my family's 1901 farmstead there is a 1928 Ford tractor that's still used for cutting the lawn.

Very nice guys.  I love old tractors. That part of living in Wisconsin was very enjoyable while it lasted.

Finally got to my computer so I can post a pic.

This tractor is pretty neat.  Engine was made by Waukesha engine company in Waukesha, WI (company is still in business today).  The tractor itself is the Rock Island Tractor Company from Rock Island Illnois (only a couple of hours from where I live).  This tractor company is now part of what we know today as the Case International Company.
