No, I have no idea who this man is but I do know that he owns this old Farm-All.  We've been out to a couple antique truck and tractor shows over the past week and it sure is amazing to see what's still out there working and being displayed with pride.  
The funny part is, we were thinking we'd love to have something old to restore.  Even funnier - we do have something we can restore.  Steve has his Fordson Major which is his working tractor.  He's also got a Ford 8n in pieces that he can work on.  We've got my 1984 Buick LeSabre and our 1978 Empire travel trailer.  The not-as-old stuff would be our 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty and my 1999 Jeep Wranger TJ.  
Now, about that TJ.  RedDevil has been to the doctor quite a bit lately with a multitude of old-age issues.  We've replaced the radiator, shocks, oil pan & gaskets, water pump, thermostat, having the transfer case gasket replaced, and the blower motor resistor.  I'm thinking I missed something there but that list is long enough.  After all this, I should be good for at least another 100,000 miles.
