Tractors on Parade


Well, I'm not sure if this is a tractor or a tank, but it got a lot of cheers at Saturday's West Dallas Antique Tractor Show!

Sponsored by the Orrville Volunteer Fire Department, the show attracted a huge crowd from all over Alabama. They came to bring and see dozens of old tractors and cars, browse some 50 vendor booths, eat barbecue, roasted ears of corn and homemade ice cream.

There was music... country, bluegrass and even "Elvis," along with a rock climb for kids and a Country Kids Playground that had a slide attached to big round hay bales. The gorgeous weather as well as no Alabama or Auburn football until 6 p.m. helped round up the folks.

I've always loved tractors so I would have enjoyed this...but I don't know what to make of the tank/tractor...I wonder if it's used for some particular work or it was created just for fun (and parades, of course).

When I saw that tractor, my first thought was rice paddies, and if memory serves the Sacramento area is where Caterpillar tractors were invented.

Just MHO

Apparently the fields that is meant to be used on are pretty rugged.
