1947 Farmall Cub A

In 1950 or '51 my Grandpa Gresser bought this Farmall Cub A along with loads of attachments at an auction. At the time he would use it to care for his and his neighbors small, semi-urban farms. When Grandpa passed away my mother inherited the tractor. Last weekend we took it out to the small farm of a lifelong friend of hers to be used for both work and fun and after sitting for nearly three years of no use it only took some fresh gas and a new battery to make it run like new...for about an hour until it blew a radiator hose...oh well.

I've had the opportunity to ride motorcycles at some very serious speeds (I won't post actual numbers because my Mom reads this blog and that's something she just really doesn't need to know) and it is so intense and such a rush...this is nothing like that at all...yet it's still an absolute blast. There's something so very cool in the simplicity of it all.
