Bird Sanctuary to Christmas Ornament

My name is Dave and the tractor story I have is about a 1944 Case model DO. What started all this was my father and I were sitting down at my parents house in Florida. They bought a house there over seven years ago and moved there full time.

Now back at our old family house hold around Christmas time we would pick a piece of equipment or a machine and decorate it with lights for the holidays. The last time we all as a family did that was in 2007. So two years ago around November early December my father and I were talking about how fun it was putting the lights up and how we both enjoy our tractors and machines. The last tractor we did was our 1941 Farmall H and it looked good so we thought and talked about how can we do this in a subdivision in Florida?? Well after some time trying to figure out how to get a tractor home, we found one that worked perfectly!

Here’s the Paul Harvey story lol, I was on the internet and found an ad for our Case tractor that the man we bought it from couldn’t keep anymore. So naturally we inquired about it and found it in Tampa Florida about a 30 minute drive from our house. Now when we got the directions where to meet the guy we were surprised to find out it was a Bird Sanctuary. Mr Zaksee was his name and birds were his game. This place was just amazing for what it was and sure enough there was the little Case sitting by a tree. After awhile of chatting and some laughs we made a deal and the very next day got a trailer and picked her up and brought her home. And boy what a feeling it is bringing a new toy home. The main reason we purchased the Case was for a Christmas ornament for our home. And to find a vintage tractor in a bird scantuary is neato.

We fell in love with it because it needed to be saved from where it was. We brought it home and cleaned her up. Even put a quick coat of Case orange to protect it a little. When Christmas came around that Case looked great in our subdivision.

The Tractor Lover’s Holiday Gift Guide

Here are the top 12 gifts for tractor enthusiasts this holiday season – all sure to please!

  1. Magazine Subscription or tractor calendar. Most tractor brands have their own niche publication, and a subscription is the gift that keeps on giving!
  2. Hat with a tractor emblem. Steiner sells hats for many brands, including the hard-to-find Allis Chalmers and Massey Harris.
  3. Stainless muffler for their tractor. A shiny muffler is a great finishing touch that many collectors overlook.DSC (52)
  4. Tractor book, literature, or manual. A well-researched book on their favorite brand can be a real treat. Even better: original sales literature or a manual, framed for display. This can be hard to track down, but makes for a really neat gift!
  5. Tickets to visit a tractor museum or show. Smaller museums may even offer one-on-one tours with a knowledgeable guide.
  6. Tractor seat cushion. Ride in style and comfort! Cushions can be found in colors to coordinate with most brands.
  7. Collectible toy tractor. Go ahead and buy the dream tractor – scaled down in size and in price!
  8. A coupon for a custom tractor wash – “custom” means you do the work! If you live in the north like I do, be sure to note “weather permitting” in the fine print.
  9. Tractor Christmas ornament or stocking. Steiner sells stockings for many brands, too.
  10. Tools. If you don’t know what to buy, just ask – I’ve never met a mechanic who couldn’t think of something to add to the collection.
  11. A coupon for a shop clean-out. If your mechanic has lots of tools, keeping them organized is probably a bit of a challenge. Spend an afternoon organizing socket sets and sweeping out the corners – bonus points if you come with fresh shop rags.
  12. Bake cookies in the shape of a tractor and decorate. At my house, Santa gets tractor cookies – perhaps he’d enjoy them at yours as well!255747_10150276599484400_4299130_n
