I Found My Grandfather

It all started when I got my first 1958 Cub tractor. I restored it, then started showing it off in parades and tractor shows. I started looking for another, for my son. I found one about 6 miles up the foad from where I live. At first, he didn't want to sell it, then in about 2 weeks, he called me back and said that he didn't have time to restore it and that if I was still interested in it I could have it for $1500. I went to look it over, and when I did it was too good to be true. He was letting me have all the attachments which included double plows, front snow plow, saw mill, sickle bar and tire chaines and also tire weights and a bottom grader blade. We talked a little about the tractor, and then we loaded it up. To my amazement, it started, and we drove it around in his yard, then we loaded it up. Just before I started to leave, I asked him where he had got the tractor. He had bought it down the road just a little ways, so I stopped and talked to the person who had originally owned it. I was in shock to find out that the Cub tractor was my Grandfathers, he had bought it brand new in 1947. He also owned the International dealership where he sold tractors and International trucks. I couldn't believe that - I had come across a tractor that my Grandfather had owned! I take it to parades and tractor shows every time I get a chance. I have been offered $5200 for it. I gave it to my son so that it could stay in the family. He's 13 and that's all he talks about. My grandfather died before I ws born, I never knew him. But now I have a piece of him to have forever because I know that my son will never sell that tractor. Cub tractors forever!

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
