Thanks for the tractor pic, Howard. Seeing that brought back a great memory of a tour me and my former wife took through the Tired Iron Tractor Museum in Cuylerville, NY.

It was an accumulation of steel-wheeled tractors (and some attachable equipment) that a Cuylerville resident, "Bump" Hamilton, had put together. Sadly, Bump has passed on. But, the day we were there, he and his wife walked through the exhibit with us, explaining the uses for (at that time) long-retired equipment.

His passion for what he had amassed was quite evident. One couldn't have asked for a better "tour".

Not sure, but, I'm guessing that the items in his "museum" were probably sold/auctioned off to others. Too bad that was before the age of "everybody has a video camera".
