Tractor tales.

To add to the Alvis in my imaginary vehicle collection I have selected a Minneapolis Moline tractor.This tractor is not a gentleman's conveyance in the manner of the TF21 but I would feel adequately kitted out if I am ever lucky enough to buy one. I would imagine that they are rather thin on the ground over here in the U.K. but perhaps in America I will be lucky enough to find one....or perhaps I will surprise Vinogirl or Vinomaker with an unexpected Christmas present, for their use only of course!

If you're going to get a Minneapolis Moline tractor don't bother with the Jet Star 2 but invest in the classic 1938 UDXL Comfortrator:

That is one cool set of wheels!

I like work horse vehicles too. Whenever I go to an air show it's the Hercules and Nimrods that get my attention.

I like diesel locomotives over steam or electric too.
