RE:Family tractors etc.
I like the idea, John.  First, we'll start with my Grandpa Bush's 1952 Massey-Harris 44, which he always called "Old Sam".   I spent at least as much time in the field on this one as I did my Dad's 1953 M-H 44 as a kid growing up on the farm.

Grandpa sold this 44 to a friend of the family in the early 1970's.  That friend continued to use it on his small farm into the 1980's.  I bought it back from him in 1987, and restored it in 1991. 

I just realized that I don't have a nicely posed photo of this one.  Need to remedy that this summer.  Here is a shot of it at a Massey show in Southern Indiana, and one of it enjoying a bit of a workout at the Great Planting by Massey-Harris in 2001.
