Reminds me of some sayings like---Beauty is in the eye of the beholder----One mans treasure is another mans junk.

Maybe some widow resented the tractors because her husband spent money on old tractors and deprived her of things she wanted. Ditto for kids deprived of their wants because money was spent on "junk" tractors.

Years ago when I moved to my present location a neighbor had a collection of what I considered pure junk. For health reasons he needed to move so he advertised to have a sale. My thought was no one will come to his sale. WRONG. A big crowd showed up and bought every thing such as old glass jars, broken leather parts of horse harnesses, junk, junk junk.

Then there is the hassle factor. Years ago before the Internet and digital camera, I had a good 205 JD cornhead that I no longer had any use for. I walked around it in the barn for several years and then parked it outside along the tree line where it became an eyesore to me. Finally, I hauled it to the junk yard knowing someone somewhere would like to have it. It would have been too much hassle on my part to find that someone.
