Tractors, Through the Ages

When we went to Pumpkin Fest at Delicious Orchard,
they had the coolest tractor display.
 
All shapes, colors, sizes and ages, this want-to-be farm girl was in heaven.
 
McCormick Farmall
New...shiny...red, this was a beauty!
 
McCormick - Deering
New...shiny...red, the tractor for the new age farmer!
 
John Deere
 
New...shiny...green, this is what my tractor would look like.
He might get a new paint job, do you think he would mind purple?
 
Allis - Chalmers
New...shiny...orange, I thought this was a strange lookin' fellow!
 
Cockshutt
Vintage...worn...red, this guy had earned his keep!
 
McCormick Farmall Cub
I was born in 1957, not retired yet, I am still working.
My sidekick is used to cut hay!
 
John Deere, of the Vintage Varity
 
 
 
I bet this guy has more then a few miles on him.
 
So what do you peeps prefer, new and shiny...or vintage perfect?
I like the "distingushed" guys best!

  1. These are awesome! I love the second one and the Allis-Chalmers! My grandfather had an old school Allis-Chalmers for years and it was still running after he passed away. It had turned a solid rust color, but was a great tractor.

  2. That's all that's missing on that vintage John Deer, is my uncle Lawrence with his pipe in his mouth.

  7. I think they are all incredible. My brother has a old ford tractor. He loves that thing, I think my favorite is that red one that looks like a spacecraft. I have never seen a tractor like that before.

  8. Living in farm country I have never seen the Cockshutt nor the McCormick-deering. I love seeing the old tractors. The ones they use today are HUGE!

  13. What a spectacular display of rural royalty. Great shots. That new-age/space ship one might scare the livestock - it would me...at the very least, I would have to stop my car and take pictures if I passed by and it was out in the field.
