Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors

Good Book - Roger Welch; tractor restoration; the


Recommended Posts

I got drug into Barnes & Noble last night 'cause my wife wanted a new book. While there I stumbled on a great
book about the story of a tractor restoration. I'm not much of a reader but I devoured several chapters last
night. I kept laughing out loud as I read about Roger's situations and recalled my own learning experiences with my
AC Garden Tractors.

He refers to a "gene" which is triggered in men which hooks them into restoring things (making them work again)
and collecting them. Roger states he used to have a home with a nice yard, several trees, and a nice home &
garage. He now has a nice yard, several restored AC tractors in the yard, fewer trees, a nice house and a garage
full of projects. Sound familiar?
Anyway it is a fun read - just thought I'd pass along.

I have the "gene" - do you?

Enjoy the read, T.[A href='http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ts/book-reviews/0760303010/ref=pm_dp_ln_b_1/002-8335384-1853819']http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ts/book-reviews/0760303010/ref=pm_dp_ln_b_1/002-8335384-1853819[/a]
