I used to run a 1948 Allis-Chalmers model G that had been retro fitted with a floating grader board. I sure wish I had one of those now.

The Oakdale Tractor Rodeo

A BIG sign for such a… small town. ;)


Wow that was cool how about this one?


She’s seen some recent attention.


The both of em look pretty good.


But don’t forget this working girl she’s ready for the job site.


He was too, till his wheels got jacked. Bastards!






Of course they have a nice little fixer upper for the handy persons amoung you.


Just picture the fields you’ll plow…


And then there’s this guy


He’s built for one thing…


Hauling ass, yes Sir!


Man I wanted to buy em all!


And ride on out of there in style.


So stop on in if you get the chance its just across the highway from the rodeo.

And spotted this on the way to work; such a sexy chassis, even in disrepair.

Bring it into the garage and fire up a coffee maker beside it.

Bring it into the garage and fire up a coffee maker beside it.

If you mean the rig atop this page, sitting in her little copse, I like to imagine this already happened.

She sits about 50 yards off Route 1 in Northport, sort of the start of economic depression along that coastal road. Her perch seems deliberate rather than accident or inevitable; I suspect her owner wants to show her a bit without risking vandals sullying her reputation.
You can see her paint, and while clearly not a full restore, it speaks to me of a month or winter under roof or canvas, with a short-stack woodstove or kerosene blower and yes, cups of joe, black with a pinch of salt (lots of ex-Navy around here). Her immediate neighbors being run-down trailers, overgrown dooryards, and abandoned sheds from gone-by boatbuilders, once you know where to look, she stands out like an apple among withering fall leaves.

I could not have built my house without my Ford 8N tractor. All the beams I made in the woods were hauled out by the 8N; including many truck loads of logs used for floor boards etc.
Most of these are 8x8-30 ft. long Oak beams. Lower left are 12x14". <br/>

This is only about 1/4 of the beams made. The Ford 8n is a real workhorse.
