My sister-in-law was a Nebraska farm girl (she's still a Nebraska girl, just doesn't live on the farm any longer). Her dad collects and restores tractors, and has three barns full of them. One barn has projects, one has tractors that are mechanically restored, but not parade ready, and the last barn has tractors that are restored, painted and polished. These pictures are from the last barn.

He kind of specializes in Massey Harris, but as you can see he has tractors from most of the American manufacturers.



This one is from the second barn, not completely done cosmetically, but perfect running order. I just like “M”s










This is her dad's current favorite for tractor parades. It's a M-F 35 Deluxe. He likes it because it's usually the fastest tractor out there. He said it will easily run up to 28 mph. He used to race snowmobiles.






This one is pretty special. I promise you, there are a whole lot of farm kids who have never heard of a Sheppard. It's his most recent restoration.


This was my favorite, a Triple 5 MH. Really cool tractor. I think he has the entire number series of Massey Harris tractors. I'd have probably smiled if I knew my brother was going to take a picture.


He also has four our five completely restored tractors in one of the exhibition buildings at the fair grounds. One is a beautifully restored Allis Chalmers WC; I've always had a soft spot for ACs, and he's got a WD that he'll be starting on soon.

I used to attend the tractor pulls at the Montgomery County (MD) fair. In addition to the (heavily) modified class, they also had super stock, stock, and classic. Loved to see the old ones, and they pulled the sled very well. Nice pics, Tom.

I like it. I grew up working on dairy and pig farms in MI. Everybody had John Deere but I had a soft spot for Farmall an International. I think my favorite was an orange Allis-Chalmers similar to this one

Glad a couple of you like them anyway. Those of us who frequent this Forum have a lot in common. Sometimes, I’m surprised at those interests we don’t share. Obviously, we’re a largely urban community.

Awesome! My son and I were out working with our tractor pretty much all day today, he will love these pics when I show him. Our tractor is not vintage, it's a Kubota Smile

Found some pics of a few 'vintage' working tractors we have seen at friend's farms. These are definitely not for show, they still work pretty much every day!
