Old Tractor New
So, I own a 1953 Farm All Cub Tractor. For those of you who come to the farm - you might know it as the super rusty one. It's a great tractor: light weight, great for cultivting between rows and hilling potatoes. It saves a lot of back breaking labor and is fun to drive. Plus, it was made in a time when things were made to last. It's almost 60 years old and will probably go for another 60!
A friend took it this winter to work on the clutch - opened up the entire casing and now it "purr's like a kitten" and the clutch works great. That was awesome in an of itself - but when he brought it back to the farm I had a huge suprise waiting for me in the driveway.
So here is what it looked like old:
And here is what it looks like new:
Thank you to my friend - who painted it as a gift - it was a total surprise and and very happy way to start the season!!!!
