"Big Boy's Toys"
Here’s a photo of what I call my “Big Boy’s Toys”. The big tractor is a 1954 Massey Harris 44 Special. The engine was beyond repair so I replaced it with a Chrysler 318 Industrial. This tractor is a nice conversation piece at tractor shows and is fun to ride on tractor drives. I’ve used it to plow and spread manure and it works great. The small tractor is a 1/2-scale model that I built using a Chevy Geo Metro engine, the floor shift transmission off an older 1/2-ton pickup, and the narrowed-up rear end off a 1/2-ton pickup.
