I have been a subscriber of GEM for several years, and enjoy it very much. My wife and I have a building 170 feet x 60 feet full of horse machinery, 40 old tractors including a model L Emerson Brantingham 12-20 HP, 380-plus cast iron seats, we enjoy collecting very much.

We have had several groups here to visit with us, we had 40 Australian farmers here last August and never had such an enjoyable day.
