VINTAGE PICS

Recommended Posts

@nylyon, Can we set up a separate section of our gallery to keep these vintage photos in to make them more accessible? If a person is doing a WIKI it would be great to include some of these.  :thanks:

By the way, my parents say they had the same car seat for me back in the day.  

My dad put a rope on that cardboard box and pulled me around.  Must have been before I got the Radio Flyer.  I remember him pulling it on the carpet down the hallway in the house with it too.

Have a pict of your LDT-24 to share Richard? 

 

Right now it is in the back of the barn, probably won't see the light of day until sometime this spring. I'll share a photo when I bring it out.

2 things about that home video: 

 

How did that trailer ever survive and how did they keep that tractor from popping wheelies? :scratchead::confusion-confused:

Rod Stewart is your son?    I'm just kidding.  :)

 

My dad still has the dump cart.  I think it's the same era, early sixties. 

 

Here is the 552.  I think this was the first :wh: my dad bought.   He discovered WH tractors when his boss, the Chevy dealer owner bought one.   From his description I think it was an RJ from late 50s.  It had a pull start.  Dad went to the local :wh: dealer and bought one with a starter.  The boss man was jealous so he went and traded tractors!

 

Oh, that kid is me again.   :rolleyes:  I was born in July of '63.  So these pics would be probably within a year of that. 

 

 

Great pictures, thanks for sharing them :handgestures-thumbupleft:

 1958 Wheel Horse Tractor!

:text-coolphotos:     Looks like the hood on the RJ got used as a seat a few times, my Suburban and one of the RJ projects in the haymow have that same custom treatment!   :ychain:     Love to see that covered wagon some day.
