If you like antique farm tractors, you'll fall in love with this book about the people who collect and restore so-called "old iron." Author John Harvey highlights 29 exceptional tractor collectors. This book begins with a description of the oldest Hart-Parr tractor and the man who now cares for it. The spotlight then turns to other collectors and their tractors, including: Allis-Chalmers, John Deere, Heider, Farmall, J. I. Case, Massey-Harris, Minneapolis-Moline, and more. Much of the text is anecdotal- stories about real people, who, through their love of old tractors, are preserving an important part of this century's agricultural heritage. Most, but not all of the collectors featured in this book are farmers; most, but not all are men. Here's a hobby that bridges the gender and age gap. Stunning photographs showcase each collector's tractor. Almost every tractor is shown in brilliant color (over 170 color photos).
