Today was kinda cold in AM, then got little warmer in Afternoon, then Real nice when we were leaving around 6:00 pm....of Course! Not gonna be many left for Sat, most left today and even some yesterday that were around the grounds. Lots of last minute "I don't wanna load it back up" sales going on. Amish folk today all over. Special buying day for them?? One Amish fella was looking at a Speedex S-24 right after me, and I went back for picture and he was riding off on it, SOLD! Some odd ones seen today. There was a weird Montgomery Ward brand that almost looked like was backwards tractor with the steering wheels being under the seat area and straight up wheel to turn it. Kinda looked like an attachment for a 2 wheel tractor really?? 2 Mayraths there, More Panzers and Bantams. Pennsylvania Meteor there, first I have seen, real nice. Had double wide seat and wide dash. Biggest thing was it was HYDRO! He said wide seat was stock, didn't know they Made hydros. Nice old Page and other odd rigs at the Bantam guy's trailer. Seems one was Fairbanks Morse, with single wheel and other I forget, but was cute like a Bug, with mesh seat on it. Thinking was a Moto-Mowette or close? I sold my MTD 990 Cucumber Clunker today and my engine hoist, some Speedes wheels and plows, other small items. Was pretty good day. Couple tractors "Jumped" onto my trailer as I was leaving and wouldn't get off! One was a C175 Wheelhorse with blown KT17 (like many) and other was the Sears I got yesterday. BUT.....these are the Last Ones I'm gonna buy.......mama! Found an MM BF (Avery) running and not bad at all for $2500 or offer. MAN! Way cheap on that one. Got his name in case I break down and wanted to get it. Those things go for 4 or 5000 or even more for nice done one all the time! Good thing I didn't have enough cash with Me, ha!

New wheelhorse and the Sears at home! Wow, trailer looked emptier for sure. IF...I hadn't let these stay on, would have actually come home with NOTHING left and sold it all! That would have been a first for me. Be looking for Horse parts now and probly a single to put on it.

G L, The first tractor is a M/W Power-Trac Rider built by Midland for M/W. Midland took the 2 wheel tractor and added the back half to it to make a 4 wheel tractor. There were 2 sizes of them, the Chor-Trac and the Power-Trac. How much were they asking for it, I would love to own one.

Not sure for sale, no one around. Many guys just bring tractors and then show people, don't really have for sale. Most like that just stay on trailer. This one was kinda tucked back near his camper.
