Possible Wheel Horse Graveyard!!

26 posts in this topic

ID: 1   Posted

So my buddy stopped by today to check out my newly restored C-120. After he gets done complimenting the C-120, He tells me that not too far from here, there was a Wheel Horse dealership, but sometime in the late '70s, it was closed down, and converted to a residence. THEN, he tells me that he was at the place about 5 years ago doing some work for the owner, and the owner took him out back to an old out-building, and my buddy said it was FULL of old wheel horse tractors and parts and pieces!! No new ones that he saw, but just old ones in various states of disrepair. And he also said that out behind the old out-building were even more old wheel horses in the bushes!! Guess we he and I are going tommorow AM !! Let's hope they are still there! I'll keep you guys posted......... :notworthy:

In none of his posts, or his profile, does he mention what part of the country he's from. Darn, planned on doing a little detective work :notworthy::thumbs:

He did slip up and sign one of his posts "Jon H.". Hmmm...... how many Jon H's could there be in the USA anyway? :WRS:

I'm 90% positive he's in Maine.

I was through that state a few times and am pretty sure that it's entirely too much territory to go exploring (blindly) looking for a backyard full of Wheel Horses. :notworthy:
