This Ford 3000 tractor was my father’s. He passed in January of 2000. The tractor sat in my Mom’s barn for 20 years. I bought it from her and cleaned and painted and repaired and replaced as necessary. It’s running great now, and I use it most EDC every day at our 23 acre ranch in Mason, Michigan. For me it’s an honor to use my father’s tractor.
