Dale, a pretty fair showing.

We'll crank up the Waybacker Tractor and hit the time warp. What say we pre-set for Fresno, early 20th century?

Hit it, man!

Awesome, Mouse!
I'd love a print of that shot "Leveling the Fig Garden".

Not quite tractors

That cat is certainly a tractor in the truest sense. Nice rust find!

Some relics now serving as the perimeter fence on a ranch off Yerba Buena Road, Santa Monica Mountains. Not quite tractors but topical enough for being in a climbing area.

Those are very near Bob Dylan's place.
Never had the oppo to climb in there, but we always chose Tahquitz or some "better" class of rock to climb. Back when gas was cheaper...

Awesome thread. You have access to an incredible amount of old tractors - Perswig's access is beyond belief...

Some big boys. Three 730s, two apparently originally employed in Argentina and one from the Midwest.





I'm standing there checking out the clearances and this farm kid wanders over - we both agree it'd be pretty exciting working one of these given the topography we've got around here. Be ready to bail...!



And an aggie ATV.

It is hard to believe anyone designed a tractor around the Fairbanks Morse. Our neighbors had them, And I still loved them.

Does this qualify as a tractor? It's the only one I own.
