OLD TRACTORS AND THE MEN WHO LOVE THEM
president Gibson Tractor Club author of Vintage Garden Tractors 4200 Winwood Cr. Floyd Knobs, Indiana 47119
I obtained a copy of this book on September 18, 1996, after my supervisor agreed to pick it up for me from a Walden Bookstore in Carmel, Indiana, when I gave him a sob story about our local Walden's not having it in stock. Actually, when he first told me about this book, I just knew he had to be pulling my leg, knowing of my affinity for the mold tractors especially Gibsons, that is!
It's now October 2, 1996, and I'm up to the final chapter but having 'reader's blockage' nothing to do with 'writer's 'because I don't want it to end it's too good!
Many times throughout I found myself saying hey he's talking about ME and I don't even know the man especially when he refers to various snafus and dumb things novice tractor restorers do!
Author Roger Welch, a noted writer, teacher, CBS Sunday Morning commentator, and down-to-earth WC Allis nut, covers a wide range of topics, from 'getting started' to tools, parts and resources, with many funny anecdotes along the way.
Highly recommended reading! Attention old-iron-nut wives: Definite stocking stuffer material! Published by Motor books International in 1995. $14.95, 160 pages, soft cover.
Ed. Note: This book is available by mail order from a number of sources advertising in this magazine.
