My friend Ken has a T tractor that his father used for years to plow the family garden. Ken still takes it out occasionally to plow. Here is his video of it.

What a neat machine. Thanks for sharing, and tell your friend his camerawork is pretty neat. I like how the camera got knocked over, coming to rest recording the operator through the frame of the tractor. Cool!

This is the biggest reason I like the old stuff. Drips, smells, and always gets the job done. I wouldn't be surprised if someday in the future this is going to make a lot of sense,

I Like the old stuff that you can see things working without all the side panels and plastic. Most of the things being sold today won't be running a few decades from now,

I'd like to see someone doing this with a modern car. Maybe a Ford Focus or a Honda Civic.

That is neat. It is one Ford that I wouldn't be ashamed to own.

Ken also has a T touring car and a T depot hack, all handed down from his dad. Ken's a great mechanic and is in the process of restoring a '55 Buick as we speak.
