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.

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.

The front end of my 8N tractor would be off the ground hauling that beam
out of the woods.
