  1. I was almost shocked! I can remember some of those old tractors chugging around when I was a small boy. And those “Mini” cars, I was given a ride in them sometimes. It was like being in a Goldfish Bowl. I heard about a Dutch man who bought one of those cars and built himself a “Mini” garage. He drove his car in but couldn’t open the door because the garage was too small ……
    And the car had no reverse gear……….
    For a short while I worked with a Blacksmith, hammering white-hot steel, making chains and tools for the leather industry. If I see an anvil these days – I turn and run!
    Thank you for these wonderful photos,

    • Hello Clive.

    • Hi TBM.

      I love too those two first photos. I am glad that You did find something among this “peculiar” post.

      Happy week-end!

  3. Yes, I like the first two photos too! Interesting to see how comfort has been a factor in the design developments of tractors. And I know that safety has been an issue too. Apparently, when the old tractors ran over large stones they could jerk the driver off backwards and cause terrible injuries. Fascinating to see the size of the most recent one – the 2010 model. The back wheels are the height of an adult!

    • Hi Janice.

      I also think that this tractor gathering was nice presentation of the development of tractors. Thank You for Your comment.

      Happy Monday!

  4. I love these old tractors — I remember seeing some similar to these growing up on a farm. I haven’t driven a tractor in years, but it’s hard to believe how large some of the tractors have gotten to be. I also enjoyed seeing the miniature cars, but I must admit that my favorite photo is the first one. The look on the child’s face is one of pure joy.

    • Hello George.

      Thank You commenting. What comes to those miniature cars in photos # 41 and # 42, they are BMW Isettas which were made between 1955-1962! Photo numbers can easily be found by moving mouse pointer over some image. It was very interesting to read that You have driven tractors.

      Happy Monday!

  5. Who would have thought there could be so many kinds of tractors?!

    • Hello Anneli.

      You are right. It is sometimes good thing to visit in this kind of happening and to be “surprised”.

      Have a lovely day!

  6. I like history and I like the old tractors 🙂 Judy

    • Hi Judy.

      I am glad that You like history. The history of tractors is maybe “unknown” to many of us. It was also to me. Thank You for Your visit and comment.

      Have a wonderful day!

  8. I love this collection of tractors! I could easily spend several days there admiring them, old and new. When I was a boy of about 8 years I started driving an old Farmall on my Grandparents’ ranch, pulling a hay wagon while the men loaded it with pitch forks. It looked very much like the one in photo 17, although I suspect it was much older. I loved that old tractor!

    • Hi Terry.

      Wow. I have never been driving tractor. I spent my childhood (10 years-22 years) on countryside. I remember that once I (maybe I was 12 years old) had possibility to transport grains to the mill to be grinded into flowers. I was afraid at first how to stop and start the horse!🙂 Now it sounds ridiculous.

      In past days that kind of tractors than in photo # 17 where popular in Finland too. Thank You leaving Your comment with memories.

      Happy Monday!

  9. Yes, indeed. We sure do love our John Deere tractors in TX. They come in green and yellow, but there are others… probably other companies… that come in blue and other colors. Why shouldn’t farmers enjoy their tools of the trade, too?

    Comment by Deli Lanoux, Ed.D. — May 28, 2012 @ 03:44 | Reply

    • Hello Deli.

      Thank You commenting. Yes there are many tractors made by other companies. Even in Finland we make tractors. The history of tractors in Finland is 61 years old. First prototype was made in 1949. They are called Valmet tractors and nowadays Valtra. For example we have tractor factory in Brazil near Sao Paulo, Valtra do Brazil since 1960. Here is link in English to

      Finnish tractors in Brazil

      I checked how many horsepower tractors have and I did find that Valtra S352 has 370 horses (272 kw). Compared with my little blue car with 280 horses, it is much.🙂

      Have a wonderful day!

  10. It looks like a nice program that the whole family could enjoy. Great pictures too!

    • Hi Megtravelling.

      You are right. This kind of gatherings is not so popular than car gatherings, but to me tractors are generally speaking quite unknown. I see them on fields and that’s it. Thank You for Your comment.

      Have lovely day!

  11. Oh what wonderful machines! I was totally absorbed with the tractors, and then you delighted me even more with the photos of the old cars. I spied an old Volvo like the one a college friend used to drive. I loved that car! Like some other commenters, I think the first two pictures are wonderful. You captured the joy on that child’ face so perfectly. This was a wonderful trip!!!!

    • Hi Janet.

      Thank You for Your lovely comment. When publishing a post like this, I was afraid that few people can find nothing interesting. It was nice that You spied an old Volvo.

      When looking at photos 38, 39, and 40 (move mouse pointer over photos to get numbers of photos), there is interesting truck. It is so called: Wood gas generator car. It is getting its power from firewood. During WW2, we had to use them due to lack of fuel. Also some tractors were powered by Wood gas generator.

      Have a wonderful day!
