“Stuck” Tractor Draws A CrowdAt first glance, showgoers at the North East Missouri Old Threshers antique tractor show figured Clint Youse had a lot of digging to do to get his Moline tractor out of the ground. Clint told everyone there had been so much rain before the show started that one of his tractors got stuck during setup.
Of course, the reality is that Clint chopped off the top of an old tractor hood as well as two rear tractor tires, and arranged them on the ground with a real tractor seat and steering wheel. Clint said kids at the show had a lot of fun “driving” the buried tractor.
We got this photo from Cheryl DeLap Yearsley, editor of The Prairie Gold Rush, a quarterly magazine for Minneapolis Moline and Twin City tractor enthusiasts. If you like those old tractor brands, you’ll enjoy their magazine. You can get more info at www.prairiegoldrush.com.
