Farmall Restorer Has “Deere” Sense Of Humor
“I thought your readers might get a kick out of these photos I took recently that show a nicely restored Farmall tractor on display at our local Broomfield, Colorado farmer’s market,” says FARM SHOW subscriber John Ottem. “Evidently the owner of the tractor wanted to demonstrate his preference for red tractors over green ones. You had to look close to see it, but even an old John Deere lover like me had to admit it was pretty funny.”
    The photo shows a small toy Deere tractor setting inside a glass jar that’s part of the tractor’s original air cleaner assembly.
    “Every year someone parks a different tractor next to the market. But older Deere tractors don’t have a glass jar as part of their air cleaner assembly like Farmalls do, so I don’t think a Deere tractor owner could return the favor in the future,” notes Ottem.
