This appeared in Tractor Talk the other day. I know I've read about in the Corresponder before, but have forgotten most of the details. Anybody know the specifics of this?

I believe the exhaust is the silver pipe aimed downward behind the LH headlight. It does run.

Doug, John is talking about the lady on the tractor in the black and white picture that Dennis P mentioned, but that is a different experimental tractor than the one pictured in this post. This tractor belongs to the Casteal family. (not sure I spelled that name right).
