The State Farmers Market at Sandy Ridge, NC held a tractor show yesterday. It was a small show with the tractors coming from a club in Mocksville, NC. Mrs. Jim and I went there yesterday afternoon after our trip to the market where we sell our wares. I just had to show yall this one. Note it is bolted to its trailer. It's always ready to go to showtime :!:

Is that chain drive on the back to operate the lift?

That’s a pretty tractor but it looks like no fun at all to play with since its bolted down!

It's a beautiful show/museum piece in it's altogether, but must be a city dweller that owns it.
A farmer couldn't resist driving it around just a bit, even just loading and unloading it. ;)

Beautiful! I'd have to get it a little bit dirty. Bust them bolts off that thing and have some fun!

But then again, this guy could be on to something. You could do all the cosmetic work and make it look pretty but never worry about the internal side. With it bolted down and a chain guarding it's perimeter, it could never even have a crankshaft in it and who would ever know?

Not saying that this one doesn't run, but just a thought...

Have to agree with some that is one beautiful piece of art but seems to have taken all the fun out of owning it. Guess it is what he wanted though and likes. He earned that right big time :lol: :lol: :lol:
Just curious was it wet there or is that trailer that glossey?

Beautiful!!! The way I look at it at least it isn't rotting in a field somewhere or getting hauled to the scrap yard.. It is difficult to move these steel wheeled tractors around at times. Maybe this was the owners answer for the problem. At least it is outside for people to see.
