Well fellows: I see mast of you were over the age of 5 when you first drove a tractor.
I was the boy on the that drove my mother into a tizzy; the men had come in from the field for dinner; left the key in the ignition, left the Ford 9 N in low gear and shut off; Mom looked out the Kitchen window to see ?? YOU GUESTED IT ME on the 9 N driving across the barn yard toward the lane >>>> WHICH lead to the road *** OVER a creek bridge. What I had done I climbed on turned the key the 9 N fired up there I was, standing on the transmission looking over the steering wheel, heading for the lane. Her quick thinking, she ran out the back kitchen door, called to me to drive to wards her. {{ the only difficulty> the back yard garden fence with a 12 inch corner post and brace setup was between us}} you guested it I hit that big post squarely >>>>> just right of the grill on the front I beam axle; pushing the post over only slightly stalling the tractor.
Ny next time driving was at about age 6. Dad made certain that I was well trained for that one.
I don't have the 9 N or the B 275 D both sold at the farm sale in 65 when my parents & I left the farm ( dad's health) But I am re doing the experimental that Dad bought from the IHC dealer he worked for in the 40 s & 50 s ope to have it complete later this year ( Built by IHC just as they were deciding on which ones would win out with touch control / this model didn't so it is very special)
