Glad you got these posted, love that F20 and Fordson

Would also love those steel wheels to be on my F20
There was a pile of steel wheels leaning against a tree. She wants to sell some of it, and I'd bet those wheels are something shed sell. If you feel like driving down here to redneck territory

If I had my druthers, it would all be in my shop already. We will have to see what she is asking...she's unsure of value.  I offered to help. So if you know some rough values feel free to post them. There aren't many big tractor collectors in this area...

Too far to haul them and still common to find around here, just hope they don't end up in a scrapyard  :-\

Perhaps a live auction is simplest.

Lastly for tonight...
Imagine. It is winter, and a nice balmy 30 degrees out. You are laying in your bed after a lovely meal of beans and cornbread when nature calls. Indoor plumbing being unobtainable...out you go to this:
Looks vaguely familiar (it's been about 70 years ago) but our two seater had wood seats.........and a bag of lime with a Planters Peanut can that had a handle soldered on. Ah. the good old days!
Regards,
Larry

My grandparents had one of those houses at there lake cabin. As a kid wasn’t my favorite especially with a the ground hog living under it and my cousin telling me it would bite when I sat down. Good times.
