I seriously thought about doing blue accents instead of black, but I had the black and not the blue ... so that was how that turned out.

We were in your neck of the woods yesterday late afternoon. Sometime I want to make it out to see you. We're only 75 miles from Aitkin. I saw that Roger Wright's has a beater of an N sitting in front of his shop.

How do you know Roger?
He must be getting pretty old by now.
That 8n would be a real good tractor as he always took excellent care of his stuff.
I actually drove that tractor.
Back in 1975 after I got out of the Navy I stopped in there to look at some old cars he had in his lot. He had a couple Nash Metropolotans and a couple early 60s Falcon Rancheros. We got to yacking and he hired me for a couple of days to help him pick up a bunch of scrap and load it on a truck. I drove the N and used a home made boom pole to pick stuff up.
I had forgotton all about that till now.
He was a real nice guy but we didn't get much done as we stood there BSing too much. Of course that was all his fault as no one has ever accused me of being a BSer. :)

I wish I knew him. He sounds like a great guy! We were just driving by and I'm always rubber necking Fords (this fact makes my wife happy) and I saw his sitting in front of his garage. There are a couple of nice ones over at Aitkin Implement as well.
