Dale Hoerl, owner of Dale's Automotive in Lenexa, is Terry's partner in the antique tractor adventure. Many of the tractors in the following picture belong to Dale.
1941"B" John Deere Tractor (hand crank). Terry restored this tractor.
Terry and friends drove 500 miles to get this tractor 01/16/00. It is a payoff for fixing a tractor. They think that it even runs!
Now, the fixing starts on the JD "A".
Terry got this tractor in trade for a log splitter. We can't split logs anymore, but who cares. We got a pretty orange tractor!
Terry, himself, with his brand new (restored) 1977 Truck.
But let me tell you something about the heating and cooling insulation. This truck sat around many years and was the home of many fine mice families. Terry didn't completely get rid of all the insulation. Now, wifey refuses to ride in the truck when the air conditioner or heater is turned on. (Old mice urine smell never goes away!) gag...ps Terry will probably put wifey's head IN the insulation when he reads this!
This is a dying tractor, but someday it will be a green work of art. It is a 1958 420 John Deere tractor.
This yellow tractor is a fetching 1960 LowBoy Cub. Our daughter-in-law, Laurie loves to drive it. It's cute, not big and scary!
This is a lovely 1965 Oliver tractor. It's all dressed up with no place to go!
Terry gets irritated and gumpy at Susan when a tree branch reaches down to breaks off the muffler, when a large sapling leaps in front of the tractor and breaks the tie rods, when she tries to mow bushes with 3" needles and flattens the tires, when the tractor wants to race and goes too fast, and when the tractor decides the dam bank is too ugly and tries to mow the steep dam.
