About a decade ago I drove my brother over to his church and setting outside on the back of the property was a rusty, weathered, setting outside Ford 4000. Looked like it had set there for years untouched when I saw it. There just wasn't any reason for that. Had potential for someone that wanted one or it, but I wasn't interested. Turns out the church deacon borrowed it from his brother down in Kentucky, trailered it up to use for bush hogging the acres. As I understand it, after a couple of years of telling him to bring it back down to its home where he borrowed it from, the southern brother had enough and brought a trailer up to take it back. When he saw what his deacon brother did to it, let happen to it, he took it back down and they haven't spoken since.

His farm must be south of me cause there's a lot more ground showing, the snow ain't melting that fast here. Have to show these photo's to my wife and tell her, see I'm
not the only one. Thanks for posting got some neat stuff there.

I'm thinking a bit of a hoarder.
A farmer in Indiana took 50 years trashing his property, before Indiana Department of Environmental management stepped in and told thim he had to clean it up. IDEM told him anything with an engine that doesn't run you have to get rid of it.

I will tell you a true story..you have seen my Ford 2000.When I found it at an older fellows property sitting in the woods,the old fellow told me it wont start.He said he had three mechanics look at it .Also his son in law,,who he said was a crackerjack mechanic.The man said I want 2000 dollars for the tractor,a ford disc harrow,a ford 2 bottom plow with trip back shares,a brush hog,and the single three row cultivator.I called my brother and described the tractor to him,and it had 1000 hrs on the meter.He said buy it,even if it wont run youll come out ok. We went to get it with his truck.He brought a comealong to tow it on the trailer,but also,some gas,a battery,his toolbox,etc. In 20 minutes he had that tractor running,I drove it on the trailer.Then he helped me fix it all up,,and I painted it. His first little trac loader he bought when he was 18.It was in pieces and I helped him carry some baskets of parts too! He got that running,traded it up to a JD 450 that didnt run ,got that running,traded again for a better one that didnt run,sold that...Most of the stuff he has he didnt buy,,he traded and he has sold many parts over the years which you or I would call junk,,,believe me.He found a part of a Caterpillar in the scrap yard,,bought it,,sold it for 800 dollars two days later,,,thats not some dumb is it?

TV show "Pickers" would have a field day at his place. Wouldn't know where to start the bidding. If each could tell it's story.
