That is one fine looking tractor.

When I moved back to Southern CA in 2008 from Wedbey Island, WA in the Pacific Northwest our pulling club was just starting to have some modified Vintage Tractors with BBC / BBF motors.

I've never seen a lowered 8N,----- or a hi-crop one either. Go for it.

Today, I was driving a friends hundred year old tractor. It's a nineteen-nineteen, No. 1 Massey-Harris.
The steering is geared away down so it takes 15 or 20 revolutions of the steering wheel from stop to stop. You'd think this would be at least light turning, -----Wrong. It's not too bad turning a corner but correcting back to straight is horrid. One guy was taking a video and it became clear to me that I was going to not get the tractor straightened out in time. His car was nicely out of the way, but right in my way. He was happily filming away, next you'd have seen me on U-tube, me and a fairly new Volkswagen. Did I mention that there are no brakes on these tractors, hadn't been invented yet. ----Luckily, the guy riding with me pulled the clutch in time to save the day.

One of those where the camera man pans back and forth 10 times before the crash

Sounds like where the old saying 'Give me 40 acres and I'll turn it around" might have came from!

Memorable experience, indeed, Bob, I was starting to sweat.
OI, This cameraman was one of those guys that would film himself being attacked and eaten by a bear and at the last second, throw the camera to a safe place so the video could be viewed by all. ---- It was his car and he wasn't worried at all.
Bam, I'm a trucker that prides himself in his ability to turn around, forwards or backwards, but just then I needed 'forty acres to turn that rig around'.

Default Hart Parr

Every year we have an event in this area where a number of local collections/collectors/museums participate in "open doors", where everything gets displayed for the public. I'm lucky enough to live within a few minutes drive of about 6 or 8 of these collections. Here's the one I attended two years ago, it's primarily a Hart-Parr collection, but the owner also has a collection of everything old!...and a pumpkin cannon to boot . I forget exactly how many tractor seats he has ~250 or something? All numbered and cataloged too.

Then last year I went to the Massey Harris museum, privately owned and immaculately kept! These few pictures don't begin to do it justice.
