I thoroughly enjoy your magazine since I have been a wheat farmer for thirty years, and an earth mover, and I have had experience with a lot of the tractors and stationary engines shown in your magazine.

There are a lot of old American tractors lying around farms, plus headers (or combines as you call them), plus stationary engines which our people now are starting to realize have value and are restoring them. 

I am restoring two Lanz Bulldogs, an AR 1947 John Deere, and a series 2 Field Marshall diesel.

I have included a photo of a 1938 P model Lanz Bulldog which belongs to a good friend of mine. He has restored this tractor to mint condition, and enters it in the tractor pulls where it has been beaten only once. That was by a WD-40 International which has had the pump opened up; I believe it now develops 100 HP.

In my 30 years as a wheat farmer, I have owned a WD-40 International, W-30 International, three Lanz Bulldogs, three Field Marshalls, Case 500, G Model Twin City, two 686 Internationals and a Super 70 Chamber-Ian.
