Just find a happy medium, all about balance. There is some really positive stuff going on with the antique tractor hobby. There are auctions, one coming up in Fremont, NE in April, where it is solely about quality restored stationary engines, tractors, equipment. So all that effort and skill you put into your collection, you can feel happy and proud of, in that you can sell it to another hobbyist who will appreciate the heritage and fun piece of agriculture history you saved.

Add that to the Mecum Auctions. They have 2 a year and there are a number of high quality restorations at each. There always seems to be a collectors disposal at each sale as well. An aquaintance (if that is how you spell it. I wouldn't call him a friend) restores a somewhat rare JD for each sale. He is getting quite a reputation and has been a featured tractor at the last sale. He is the kind of guy who does a VERY good job to the point of over restoration. He even sands/fills the castings so they look pretty similar to sheet metal. Some guys like it and some don't, but he has never sold one for less than 5 figures.
