September’s featured tractor photo was submitted by Robert Guy of Hollywood, Maryland. Photo taken by James Drury.
“This 1952 Super C was a project dreamed up by me, while remembering my younger days working with my Dad and my Uncles farming tobacco and gardening on several different Super C’s. Our family has been part of the farming community in St Mary’s County, Maryland for hundreds of years.
I went in search of an old Super C and found this one in Pennsylvania in need of some love, and so the project began. Assisted by some family members, we made the journey and brought her home. It took about 14 months to rebuild the motor, get all of the parts that were missing, strip off layers of old paint, and prime and repaint.
I couldn’t have done it without a lot of help from my Dad and many other family members who lent a hand along the way. I have added many implements over the past few years to dress her up. In the picture is a (2C-221 Drill) Corn Planter.
Now that my project is finished, I enjoy taking the grandkids for cart rides, displaying my tractor in the front yard on patriotic days (with old glory waving), and participating in parades.
The picture here was taken during the 75th Anniversary of the St Mary’s County Fair. It was a fun day to show off the old girl and to enjoy with family and friends. The photo was taken by James Drury, who was kind enough to let me use it. I love it, and I hope you do too.”
