My son, Pat, was telling he saw Case tractors being put in a scrap wagon by Veblen SD today. Couple 930s and a 970. Using a grapple, had the front of the 970 knocked off before loading. Hard to believe people are that stupid as to send them to crush, rather than advertise and sell.

I've been thinking about this since the other day when someone posted about several tractors at his local scrap yard. Sometime the heirs to an estate may just need to get the farm cleaned up and ready for sale. They don't want to gather and advertise and have a sale or sell things individually.They have little to no connection to the equipment or what it has done for years. They possibly have regular jobs and must do all this weekends and evenings, taking away from other family activities(little league, soccer, scouts, church etc.). Or possibly they sell the property as is, maybe to a developer. The developer just need to cvlear this out and plot the land for resale. So whatever the scenario they are looking to move on. Sooo call the scrapper, get rid of everything to one buyer, problem solved. The scrapper may cherry pick a few, but his business is scrap. Pounds equal dollars and thats how he makes his money. I guess we can't save them all. I may have more tractors now than I can get to a resonable state of "restoration", sometimes we just can't save anymore. Sad but true I'm afraid. just my thoughts....gobble

TomT,

Sad, but true. They typically are only special to 1 generation and to the next they may be considered a burden. Antique Power has pages of collector tractor auctions. I'm sure the children (and auctioneers) are grateful for the CASH. Don

I understand what you said, as my 3 kids have questioned my collecting Flamebeau Red Cases. I have 5 at the present, along with a 2 bottom trailer centennial plow. They have already told me that they will sell everything, when I am gone. I have considered willing them to someone that will protect them. I know one 3 year old grand son, likes Grandpas toys. When he comes by, he is on top of a tractor, and into the seat and grabs the steering wheel and in his mind he is in Heaven, before they can catch him. I bought a MM BF, to keep it from being scrapped, as a neighbor put up a sign, if not sold by a certain day, I'll scrap it. The engine is stuck, has 4 good tires, pulley, pto, 3 point linkage, and a drawbar.

One way to look at it, is that for every one crushed, it makes the others that much more $$$ valuable.

Wow...what temerity! If my kids came right out & told me they would sell my collection I would will it in a second to someone who cared about my passion & about our farming past. This goes to show the lack of respect for the past because without it, there would be no present of what they consider good. I don't think I would even have the heart to say this to my dad about his possessions. Money talks. Just my 2 cents.
