|Got it Back|
I'll step back 50 years to when I was 5 years old and my dad bought a Ford 5000 tractor to help run our 200 acre dairy farm. I distinctly remember the day it was delivered and how proud my dad was of that tractor. Over the years we put many thousands of hours on the tractor raising crops for our dairy herd. As time went on farming became less than a lucrative adventure. It had been good to our family but it was time to move on and dad had an auction, the tractor was sold. I wanted to buy it but I barely had cash in my pocket to put gas in my car in those days. A few years ago my dad was diagnosed with cancer and itís not a cancer that can be cured, itís just a matter of time. One day dad and I were sitting around talking and discussing things we wish we had done but hadnít. I mentioned the tractor and he looked long and hard at me and said, ďletís go find itĒ. So, long story short, we started on a journey that ended in locating the old tractor. It was in poor shape and not for sale. I had to buy another Ford 5000 tractor to replace it and pay money to boot but I eventually made a deal with the owner. Over the past year dad and I, with the help of my 84 year old uncle and his grandson, restored the old girl. Itís 50 years old this year and back to what it looked like the day it was delivered that spring morning in 1969. Itís a fun story, it was fun to restore, and full of lasting memories. I put a picture in the Tractor Photos area of this site. Look for it under 'Ford 5000 utility'
