Everyone has a “once in a lifetime” opportunity and mine came in 2009.
I finally had a chance to buy my dad’s 1951 Minneapolis Moline U tractor
from the second owner after keeping an eye on it for twenty five years.
This was my dads only new tractor and it was important to keep it in the family
specially since we still had the original bill of sale. During a tractor show
in Missouri someone ask if $5000 would buy the tractor and the answer was No it
is not for sale. Even though the tractor is not worth that kind of money---
life’s memories are worth more than money can buy.
