Virtual antique tractor tour

This week, the nation’s top farm machinery engineers will discuss the latest advancements in farm machinery as part of the 2013 Agricultural Machinery Conference in Waterloo, IA. But first, they will take a look back at the machinery made decades ago.

On day one of this three-day conference, engineers are taking a self-guided tour at Antique Acres, an antique tractor museum in rural Cedar Falls. The museum holds old-time and valuable collections of farm machinery.  Founded in 1964, Antique Acres is best known for its yearly Old Time Power Show in August, where you can view all kinds of farming equipment, from antique garden tractors to powerful steam engines.

If you haven’t been to the museum yet, here are some snapshots of what you’ll see on display.

I just found out about HID conversion and i think that now is the perfect time for that. I used to go with my uncle at these kind of events when i was little and i can't wait to take my son too.

This is a good idea but I don't know how successful it's going to be. I mean look at http://www.garageappeal.com/ and the times we live in, we don't even choose our car ourselves, we ask someone to help us pick it, not to mention recycling in real life. We throw away everything that we could recycle because it is easier and takes less time.
