I guess that I like walkers the best because my first tractor was an old David Bradley, the model with the hood and the cultivator that hung from the handle bars with
rods. I was about 9 years old when I got that. We had a neighbor that passed and I went to his widow to buy it, but she would not sell it to me because I was just a little boy. I had to get my Dad to come with me to get it that night when he got home from work. I think I paid $50.00 for it. Had the snow plow too. Spent about two
years savings of chore money on that one. I will never forget the disappointment when Sears dropped David Bradley from the Farm Catalog.
I do not mind riders, but the stuff made after 1960 really has no class to it. Our best bet for a newsletter is to contribute what we know to Dougs newsletter. Just make sure that what you contribute is true and not some crap from the internet. There are some very knowledgeable people out there that really know the brands that they collect. We had a pretty good group of them at Brownsville and Kinzers this year. If Doug received one or two articles an issue, it would make his life a lot
easier, and he could improve the quality of his newsletter.
I am working with the Zagray Farm group in Connecticut to have a Shaw meet for Spring of 2017. I want to include all brands in addition, 1960 or earlier, and we will have an area to plow. If interested, share your ideas.
