Post Christmas This Year For The Elderly 
 
I have quite a few mates who get into vintage bikes, cars, tractors and stationary machinery
and now I have been bitten by the vintage tractor bug and I want one for Christmas. Top picture
is a totally unrestored Case and this was the culprit that bit me hard, the bottom Fordson tractor
is sitting in my paddock right now and is up for sale, just waiting for my mate to settle on a price.

I know it is not a bike but hey most of us have a half decent collection of them so now it's time to
add a new member to the machinery collection to join other machinery, I aint into cars never have
been so why not a nice old tractor.

How far would you go with it Bluey ??

Full .. to as she was when it left the factory ..
Running .. to run like new but still looks old & weathered ..

I like the running restro jobs .. runs like new {even better in some cases} but looks like it hasn't being touched or used in years, all rusty 'looking' but not corroded ..

The bloke that owns the Case will not touch it in any way but the old Fordson is also basically
standard as well, it runs like a gem and all hydraulics work fine, crank start petrol engine. I
think I would just leave it as it is due to time and cost of restoring machinery like that, it is
very sound with only a bit of surface rust.

Hey Bluey, are the tractors based down your area, as a mate who lives at Winton, was looking for some kinda tractor, last time I spoke to him,/ Not sure if he got one yet

If you love old machinery Bluey, you'd love Lake Goldsmith Steam Rally.
They hold it twice a year about 15 minutes from my place, and it is HUGE!!!!!

It's been running for over 100 years!

Yeah they are Steve, really big following of them down here and some are
fully restored, some partially and a lot as they where found. Here is what I
slash my property with and this is my favourite hands down, this one without
the slasher cost around the 3-4 grand mark and is in very original condition
except for the paint work, it is also down in the paddock and I have also offered
to buy this one as well but I don't think he will part with it.

Yep I wouldnt mind getting down to this one maybe next year, your area has a heap
of heavy machinery which is what I like, we dont get much really heavy machinery
coming in so we dont get steamers, not you Steve, because of transport problems. I
have been told you also get a good turnout of veteran and vintage bikes as well, not
many flat tankers are being displayed at shows these days, mainly classic and post
classic.
