Every tractor has a story.
And I was glad to hear all 30+ tractor stories last Wednesday in Alliance, NE when I stopped by the George and Belva Krejei farm after shooting a farm auction earlier in the day for our Machinery Pete TV show on RFD-TV. We strolled through George's beautiful tractor shed and went right on the down the line, me asking questions and George telling me the unique history on each tractor in his collection. A few highlights:
Farmall C: 3rd one delivered to Alliance, NE
1928 Farmall Regular: 1st tractor George's dad bought new
Farmall F12: from Texas, "roughest riding tractor ever" - George K.
1940 John Deere L: with Hercules engine
John Deere G: bought in memory of 1st tractor George ever bought, a G back in 1951
Minneapolis-Moline GB: George's uncle tractor - hardly used at all
Just the tip of the iceberg here folks. Below is the full Youtube video walk through and interview I shot with George covering all the tractors in his collection...and a special treat at the end of the video, George took me to the back room in the house and showed me his amazing toy tractor collection. Here's the video:
Lots of tractors...lots of great stories. Thanks George!
