FRED HOWARD'S COLLECTION

Having been a reader of your magazine for several years and enjoying it very much, I am sending you a group of pictures of tractors and engines that I have restored.

I am semi-retired now but I still enjoy working with old tractors as I spent 36 years working at a tractor dealership, E. K. Hofstedler and Son, in Plainview, as parts manager and later as manager. We were a dealership for Ford tractors since 1939 and also Oliver and Minneapolis-Moline.
