Jeff—he must be really close in age to my oldest given his size and the year! Very cool...thanks for sharing!

Born July '04, 13 now, if the video played he was probably around 6 then,

Crazy! My oldest was supposed to be born in July ‘04 but came a few weeks early in June instead.  It’s a small world...

Gonna try to resurrect this thread.  I’ll tweak it’s direction some to include tractors that you’ve owned for at least five years or that got you into the hobby. 

 

If you have have pictures of tractors that have been in your possession or your families possession for decades, please include those here.  I was just rereading the above posts with pics and enjoying hem every bit as much as when I first read them...vintage tractor stories never get old the just become more embellished with age!

This picture is only about 3 1/2 years old but it is a fabric of my life picture.  This is GhostRider before his sinister paint job.  I don’t ever plan to sell this plow mule and my youngest still loves to ride tractors and wants to plow himself now!

Me, my brother, and Dad pose for a quick pic in the early 80’s on dad’s 875.  

 

AND SO...got any stories and or pics to share from decades back or only a few years ago?

This picture was taken this morning with my son      . I know there is a few photos of myself at that age on the same tractor with my father and grandfather. I'll dig them out later. Here's a start. Grandfather bought this gem brand new with all sorts of goodies.  She's been working for 30 years and hasn't missed a moment.

Here's a few I found.

 

Our two daughters (now 38 and 40 years old). Heather on the 'B'-160 and Shannon on a 1054 I had just picked up. About 1985.

Heather posing with the 1054.

A few years earlier Heather and our friends son on a cruise with the B-80 prior to it becoming a 160. Geez! I don't have any gray hair!

A few of the family herd at my sisters place. Early 80ish.

:text-yeahthat: It is so neat to see how these little tractors are woven into the fabric of so many peoples’ lives.  Even new guys like @Nat Faust who just joined the site this week with his first WH just purchased, is starting a new phase of life intertwined with the :wh: brand. 

 

Keep these stories and pics coming...dig into your archives and find them.

My pulling tractor I built in the early 90's. Not sure where it ended up, wouldn't mind finding it. @prondzy and i used to go pulling every weekend he would pull off the lawn with my Raider 12.
