I agree with most of what is being said! Its so sad to see much of this eq. go to furnace.
I would love to save all my favorites ( anything l.p.) but its impossible and I agree with young people its hard on a budget to get to envolved.
As to making money on these oldies I have no talent. I have four reds and a orange restored and am working on my UTN. If I told of money invested you would have me committed but they were family tractors and replicas of family tractors and I have emotional tye to them and my Dad who passed when I was 19.
So, I will have saved 6 oldies but the cost I will never recoup but my heart is satisfied and fulfilled when I look at them.
I am 67 still working and using some retirement monies to restore ,If my health holds I'll keep working till 75 so I can save a few more.
What I have is a L.A. Case l.p.,Farmall H. FArmall SMTA l.p., Farmall 400, Farmall 560, M.M. UTN l.p.
Again I can't justify the money but I can Justify the emotion and at this stage of life I prefer restoring to trips to Europe or Casino's
So not sure what I'll do after M.M. UtN ,maybe a 806 hummmm
If your interested I can post pics,but don't want to bore.
