The Pull of the Tractor

I know that opposites are supposed to attract. Why then, am I drawn to old rusty broken down stuff.

I love the chain-linked steering.


 This is where the farmer stood and steered. That door with the lever is where he'd toss is some wood. (or coal) I'll bet it was pretty toasty standing right up against the firebox.






Here's a view of the single cylinder engine. I'm guessing that the half moon shaped block of wood on the other side was the clutch.

Probably the pressure gauge ? 

Aren't you glad your car doesn't steer with one of these ? 




What the heck. I needed to get some gas anyway - and there was this tasty looking tractor...
