Things I Can Help Other Collectors With; Currently working with Kate on the Antique Tractor Valuation Reports and hope everyone enjoys them and submits their own information soon. I've only been sick with the antique equipment bug since April 1995, so I've got a LOT to learn from everyone else!
Question for Other Collectors; Why doesn't my Allis Chalmers WC have the words 'Allis Chalmers' stamped into the top radiator tank? It's a very early serial number (000317), would this have anything to do with it?
Other Hobbies; Exploring caves, collecting obscure classic rock from 1970 to 1985 on records (yes, the circular vinyl things we've all forgotten about) and CDs, and photography. I also enjoy running the audio equipment for live bands, but I haven't been in a situation where I could do this for the last few years. I also attend as many farm and equipment auctions as I can. Thank you for your interest.
