The Buckley antique tractor show is next week and because our house has not sold yet, we will be able to attend the show this one last time.

I have already taken some of my tractors down to my sons place earlier this summer but I kept five tractors here just in case we were still able to make the show this year.

This morning I got them all out of the barn to start cleaning them up and making sure they are running good.

 

Because these tractors mostly set in storage for about 11-1/2 months of the year, it would sometimes take some work to get them all running.

I have always put Sta-bil in the gas before I put them storage but I still would have one or two that wouldn't want to run right and I would often end up having to take a carburetor apart and clean it out.

About three years ago I started running Seafoam  in all my tractors.

Since then, I haven't had any trouble in getting the tractors started and running good.

 

It is suppose to rain the rest of the week but today was a beautiful day so I decided to set the tractors out and take some group photos.

Nice group shot.

I thought you sold the R/T?

I tried to sell it to help pay for my eye surgery but no one thought it was worth what I thought it was worth.

Great looking lineup Ray. I thought the R/T was gone too. From what I saw of the auction you weren't asking enough.

I wonder how many people google 'R/T' tractor after seeing pictures of that thing.

The R/T is even more impressive up close and personal. I would like to be able to keep it in Michigan.

I knew I missed something.  Sometimes I fell stupid.  Then there are times I just know its true.

 

I was trying to figure out how a Farmall grill became a garden tractor.
