Karen,Okay guys! You did it! I am hooked! I am the farthest thing from an antique tractor fan. I prefer the theatre and a book of poetry. But I found myself at the American Museum of Agriculture in Lubbock this weekend. I saw a Kitten steam traction engine and found myself photographing it like it was a new grandbaby. How does that happen???
This is so interesting. Now I'm "itchin'" to go to a tractor show. So just call me a new fan!
Welcome to a neat hobby!
That Kitten you photographed came from up by me here in Michigan. It was owned by Walter Knapp. I have a photo of it sitting on the lowboy at our farm. My Dad hauled for years before Walter passed away. I hate that it is just sitting down there. It needed some serious TLC before Walter passed away.......Look up the Kitten thread & you will see it.
Should you need some encouragement, please ask. ....we "females" can run the engines just as well (if not BETTER!) than the boys! Here's a shot of me running my 24 Port Huron this weekend at the LaGrange, IN show. I was pulling a 10 bottom JD plow.... that had been the lead plow for the Rantoul Case exhibition... My 12 yr old niece, Marissa was up there with me. She helped her Dad (my brother, Rol) run his 20 hp rear mount double Nichols & Shepard around at the show.
