With all the shows etc we go to thought I would start a post and share photos..
I was there yesterday. It's a very good show isn't it
Great thread idea. Cracking photos
First time and its really enjoyable day out. Said on the loaded up and trucking thread spotted first truck my old fella drove after packing in farming back in the 70s. So only being 20 miles thought we would go have a look glad we did.
Where is this?
12 mile or so east of Chester on the A54/A556
One of the trucks there used to be ours. Spent many a trip out with my Dad in it which would also be back in the 70's.
Which one was it even though there was a lot.
A green one
Beggared if I remember, I was only 6. BMC I think,
Can I chuck mine in! Seen here at local Bath and West Show !!
Yes keep them coming more photo the better.
Helped an elderly neighbour who opened up her farm for an open day in aid of The Dorothy House Foundation, very wet but good turn out!! Took Along t he 1200 and the 1954 T20 which looked very comfortable in this farmyard setting!
Grandson sat on my knee as we watched the tractors parade at same show as Crevisbigx
Just sorting through photos our Model B first time out of the shed since 1964ish.
Question remains to paint or not to paint??? Looks pretty good when rubbed with oil I rather think paint takes away from it. Got it back on rubbers now (metric) and looks the part. we also foud the spade lugs for it so look forward to getting them on and having a go ploughing (away from the road)
29 horsepower used to pull tonnes of seed tatties to the local station using only the tractor brakes to slow it down. Wouldn't be me mind. The drawbar pin jumped out one day and the trailer and Tatties shot through the stationmasters kitchen destroying it. From then on the trailer was known as the Torpedo. Same tractor trailer outfit used to cart a Deere Model D or Cat D2 about in the 40's and 50's.
1986 John Deere 4850 at last weeks Lincolnshire Show.
A mate of mine got it new, now in preservation with 2nd owner.
All that patina tells a story, I'd leave it to be honest, only original once. But up to you.
