That is one AWESOME selection of tractors that you have collected. I am a closet MF fan and have never seen a few that you own. Have you collected them in your neck of the woods or all over the country??

THANKS FOR SHARING!!

I have made less than 2,000 a year for the last decade. I made a decision to quit work (didn't have time to live life and be someone else's slave for a pittance)I also married a gal that had her own money, not rich just enough to pay the household bills, and didn't expect to spend my money (quitting my job insured that) and I bought only the essentials (tractors). I take 15-18 hours of college a semester and hope to counsel veterans and teach at our local college when I finish my Masters degree. While it seems I'm a over acheiver and extremely motivated now, that's not quite true, after being released from the US army in 1982, I spent the next 20 years being a wise guy, easy hours and great perks, if you don;t get caught, I saved myself for the fourth quarter of life.

I's not the size of the collection that counts, but rather that your participating and saving tractors. Thanks

After I got out of the Army in 1979 I decided I would NEVER work for a paycheck. It's been tough but very worthwhile, I do what I want when I want, if I had gone to work I would a have continued to go to work, everyday, then when would there be time for me, weekends, nope not long enough. Nope, working will drive a man into the poor house because the first thing that happens is that a man borrows money to get married, buy a car, furniture, house,etc, Now you cant quit, and your so far in debt your wife will have to collect on your life insurance for you to be really free. Do I have a pension, nope, do I have a retirement, nope. I have a house, a wife, three vehicles, plenty of tractors, and 20 dollars in my wallet, and I owe nobody a dime. if I can work I can make a few bucks here and there, if I can't I'll be dead. BTW, this is not advice for ANYONE and YMMV, lol

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
