Antique tractor collecting and restoration has never been more popular--and all the newcomers need to be warned, according to old tractor guru Roger Welsch. Otherwise, they'll end up alone with three mortgages and two ex-wives--but they will have a barn with a sparkling restored tractor. Here, in a tone comfortably lodged between wise and wisecracking, the man Charles Kuralt called "America's premier storyteller" recounts falling in love with bringing old tractors back to life--and, along the way, manages to impart some sound advice, including the basics: What is old? What is a tractor? And what is it with old tractors, anyway? He also covers the finer points of restoration and repair, from the tools of the trade to tractor parts to the restorer's use of common household objects in a pinch.
