A poster on YTMAG.com pointed out this site to me. The website shows only old cars but the poster says they have several cubs and possibly some attachments.

Yikes, there's a 1951 Ford truck in one of those pictures looks exactly like the one we had on the farm!

John,

I only saw the one tractor in these pictures, BUT is this MY KIND OF PLACE, or what?

Model "AA" tuck and looks like a regulular Model "A" tuck and SO many other neat interesting items, now would be the time to go, before the weeds, bees and snakes take over lol!

I just love going through old salvage yards of yesteryear, especailly growing up in one, lol What I would do to be able to go back to my youth.

John...Salem, NJ is in the Pine Barrens area of NJ...Thus, all those photos of "pine needle preserved" wrecks :lol: ! Looks like a Cub, or perhaps an Allis "B" in one of the photos (too hard to tell for me) :? .

For you guys who LOVE tractor graveyards...there are several, just across the Deleware River in Eastern, PA (between Stroudsburg and Easton) :wink: !!

Wow, you guys are good. I went through those pics several times and saw NO tractors. I DID see what appears to be the right tailfin on a '58 or '59 Plymouth, though

:( Looks like a logging crew would have to go through first before you could get anything out!

Jeff,

If you go to the right hand column of pictures on the 7th one down you will see what looks to may be an old A.C. tractor on the left hand side of the picture, There's a 30 or 31 "A" pick up in the picture and this tractor is sitting just left of that. You can just see the rear of a tractor.

I even took an saved several of these pictures to the hard drive and lightened them up and zoomed in on things. It's like going back into my own past when I was a kid. We had about 25 acres of stuff just like this graveyard.

However this one here has got me wondering. I looks like some kind of homemade contraption. I added some light and zoomed in on it and got to distorted to make out what the engine was, but you can see the big soild disk wheels on the back? Looks farming-ish don't it?

Hey this is my first attempt in using Photobucket image hosting site, let me know if it's working ok here.

C'mon, Country! Look closer and you'll see it's a Farmall C. Clues: octagon axle housing, Farmall fender, steering wheel angle, wheel size, drawbar mounting. I'll agree it has the wrong seat resembling an Allis B, and the light bracket is field engineered.

Gotta go!

That drawbar looks like an Oliver drawbar.

I've heard such contraptions are called "doodlebugs." Enterprising farmers during the Depression would cut up old junk cars, trucks, whatever they could get their hands on. They'd put a second tranny in behind the first one to get some really slow (and really FAST) gears, slap a heavy truck axle and big wheels on 'em, and call 'em a tractor.

That is what my dad always called them. He started farming with one following WWII. He didn't want to farm with horses like my grandfather and he couldn't afford a tractor. I've only seen pictures of it. By the time I can remember, he had traded it for a tractor.
