the collector

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

This is Avery Stevens, the tractor collector I met this morning. I believe he said he has at least 7 old tractors, including a Silver King, and Avery and others. Collecting is an addiction, whether it be tractors or cameras, and some are more pricey than others.

Avery is donning his gloves to tighten up the chains that hold the tractor on the flat bed trailer. Tomorrow he's driving the Minneapolis Moline in the Swedish Days Parade in nearby Geneva. That ought to give the kids a thrill - they love machinery!

I see you got some comment spam Zanne. Nice series on this old tractor. I see old tractors for sale all the time sitting in the front of farm houses but never this old.

Hey John - if I have comment spam does that mean I've made it to the big time?? Now I've got to go over to the dashboard and figure out how to delete it. - Regards, Suzanne
