He lives 11 miles from me. He got the tractor bug back in the 1940's he now 80 sharp has a whip and one of the nices guys you would ever meet. I was going to stay for 30 minutes ended up being 4 hours.

He started for under $20 back then. The poor guy has 350 tractors and 150 hit and miss engines.

He love to trade for parts and will sell parts.

The Bull is a Bull Tractor 1911 only 25 were made and he know of 5 that run.

His front yard Fordson Roller

Your friend should show his tractor on "Classic Tractor" on RFD TV. Sounds like it would make a very interesting piece! :thumbsup:

Nice engine pics :thumbsup: Those cast wheels by the JD engines look like the Texas cast fronts you could get for the JD 2 cylinders. Worth a few bucks they are :)

When I was a kid (1960s) there was an elderly gentleman that lived a mile from my family's house, that had a couple of old cars that he would drive in the nearby town's July 4th parades and other special ocassions. One was a Stutz Bearcat and the other was a 1909 Buick and both were absolutely in MINT condition. When he passed away, and other folks entered the barn where these were kept, there was a SECOND Stutz there still in the crate, plus several old cars and motorcycles that no one knew he owned. All I can say is thank God for these guys that preserve bits of our machine heritage.

Yes Joe, I'm with you, these people are invaluable. Wouldn't you love to just walk around the yard, Like being at a museum. A restorer's dream.

Here's a Bull that a guy down the road from me own's. I think he has about 100 or so of the smaller type tractors. Most of what he has, are the big ol tractors like Flower City, Rumely,Avery and the likes.
