She ain't purty, she's a bit old

    Out lived her owner is what we were told
    A bit rusty, one could see this gal was old
    She wouldn't move, woudn't crank
    Not a drop was in her tank

    She rolled off the trailer without a complaint
    Lord, I thought, she needs a coat of paint.

    The hubby took her in and pittered about.
    A few days later he gave me a shout

    'Turn the key and listen to her purr'
    So I did and listened to the John Deere murmur

    I released the clutch and off she went
    Pistons pumped and her valves clattered
    Her engine is strong is all that mattered
    She might be rusty, she might have a dent
    But I do believe the old gal was heaven sent.

    [​IMG] and what a great poem!
    At one point I even considered starting a "pic and a poem" thread, but lost initiative [​IMG]

    I like reviving an old machines and putting them to back to work. This tractor steers well and the brakes work great. Always a plus for me!
