I was up in Bartlesville the other day. And I drove past a business that must of had at least 50 or 60 rusty old tractors. Looked like a real good collection. I didn't get a good look, but I did see many of them had steel wheels. Looked like all of them were from the 40's, or 50's.

I wanted to stop at look around. I did see some 2cyl JD's and a few Oliver's, there were probably about every brand there.

I thought I had died and woke up in Tractor Heaven!!!

It's north of Bartlesville on US75, just before you enter Dewey, on the east side. You can't miss it, all that rust just screams out!!! LOL

I might give them a call to ask about them.

I find it a bit sad to see tractors rusting away! It always makes me think about all the work done by these machines and their operators before they were abandoned to rust.

Lee, I think they are a little large for me to bring home. But, when I get back up that way, I'll try to snap a few pics!
