Father and Son "Spark Plugs" Prepare Old 1926 McCormick-Deering Tractor Gasoline 'Alley Test'. Dad 'Spark Plug', Wayne Whitenack watches, as son 'Spark Plug' David slops water into radiator of old tractor. David earned the money to buy old tractor by working after school in local supermarket. It's a new way to cement family relationships, and teach youthful responsibility and pride. No doubt Wayne has climbed old telephone pole in background more than once.
