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.
Amazing...I might need to come out and check out his engines...
Is he planning to sell any of his engines....might be a fun time to take lots of good pics!!! how far are you from Hammond, LA -- zip code 70403?
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.
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.
