This is my Ferguson 30 Tractor. I think it is a 1954 model...or 1952...actually, I don't remember right now. I do know it is gray.
My dad bought it for his mother to use back in the 1960s. When his mother died several years ago he got it back. Well, first, his sister tried to steal it, but that didn't work out (but she stole everything else of her mother's), but when my dad re-obtained it, it was not in real good shape. My uncle restored it. Did you know you can buy a brand new fender for one of these? Amazing, but you can buy almost any part you need for this tractor. Anyway, I bought it from my dad many years ago. And now I drive it up and down the road once in awhile slowing traffic but enjoying my myself. I have no use for this tractor but I like it so I have it.

There is a car show every Saturday night downtown in a town near me. Strangely, I was the only one there with a tractor tonight. People kept looking at me weird too like they have never seen a tractor driving through the center of town.

That is cool Peat. It's a model pre merger with Massey Harris. I may be in NYC but I'm a bit of a tractor head too. My cousin has a jubilee anniversary '50s model Ford tractor in his garage next to his wife's new car in Long Island..

Uh...well then, I am not telling you where I keep my tractor.
And speaking of headlights, I gotta figure out why either my headlights work or my taillights work but neither will work at the same time and it kinda of goes back and forth all by itself which ones work at any particular time.

On the tractor. But since I don't plan on doing any plowing at night, it should be okay.
Heck, on the BMW, more of the electric stuff doesn't work than does work. It is a nightmare. But the stuff that doesn't work I don't need anyway--like cruise, or the computer trip thing, or other junk, or taillight check lights, or temperature or trip meter, etc. But when the windshield wipers don't work, I push on the cruise lever and then they work, so the cruise lever is still good for something. When my dad had the car, none of the gauges worked. He had those fixed.
