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.
