For the aficionado of farm equipment, or the scion of an old farming family nostalgic for the old days, or the grown-up boy who still loves a classic piece of old-time machinery, the vintage tractor can be a thrilling find like no other. This book tells dozens of stories of such discoveries, of the treasured old tractor parked in a shed since 1927, of the pristine model unearthed at an estate sale, of the broken-down old beauty stashed in a barn where generations of children have made their secret hideaways. These are the classic tractors that are often as hard to find as a needle in a haystack - but far more fun to discover, as all of these delightful stories make abundantly clear. Bound to appeal to tractor enthusiasts as well as car hunters and collectors, this has the same appeal as "Cobra in The Barn", albeit on a different subject, an will appeal to those who like following clues, and the thrill of discovery!
