A good read

I just read a book that most people here would probably enjoy, called "The Tractor in the Haystack: Great Stories of Tractor Archaeology"

Here's the description from Amazon-

"For the aficionado of farm equipment, or the scion of an old farming family nostalgic for the old days, or the grown-up boy who still loves a classic piece of old-time machinery, the vintage tractor can be a thrilling find like no other. This book tells dozens of stories of such discoveries, of the treasured old tractor parked in a shed since 1927, of the pristine model unearthed at an estate sale, of the broken-down old beauty stashed in a barn where generations of children have made their secret hideaways. These are the classic tractors that are often as hard to find as a needle in a haystack—but far more fun to discover, as all of these delightful stories make abundantly clear."

It has some great stories and pictures. If your library doesn't have it, they can probably get it from another library.

I just ordered it. You can get used ones in like new condition for under $6 plus $3.50 shipping, or if you have a Kindle or similar tablet for around $13.

Eugene, that is a great story. I wonder whose idea it was to pay for the crime with a calf ? Seems like a pretty light "fine".
