A Priceless Prom Picture

1975 Case 1070
Owned by Jon and Zack Jones, Cadiz, OH. Restored by Tom Jones.
Pictured, Zack Jones and Jana Fenstamaker.
The 1070 Case was purchased by Zack Jones in September 2010. Zack was 14 at the time and was battling cancer at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh. Being stuck in a hospital bed was hard for this farm boy to handle so to help pass time we would look at tractors online. When he and his father, Jon came across the 1070 in an ad they called about it and purchased it that week. Zack couldn’t wait to get home after chemo treatments to go take his tractor for a drive. The tractor needed some work done so they called on Zack’s great-uncle, Tom Jones, to see if he could repair what needed fixed. A year and a half later the tractor was totally restored complete with new tires purchased by Zack’s grandparents, Jon and Pauline Jones. The last details were finished the night before the local prom, just in time for Zack to drive it and his prom data, Jana Fenstamaker, through the promenade. It may be just an old tractor with a new paint job to some but to Zack it was much more than that!
