The Annual Green River Tractor Show is an eagerly anticipated event for Jim Whitehurst.

Jim buys, sells, refurbishes and trades a never-ending roster of vintage tractors which call to mind his earlier years on a Vermont farm.



Jim loaded a current favorite 1958 Massey 50 behind old 'Snort'n Nort'n' [ his cherished 92 Dodge Cummins] and headed for the Home Place on Green River, yesterday, in spite of dark clouds and a spatter of rain.

By the time Jim strolled along the rows of tractors sunshine gleamed on shiny hood and fenders. The old Cockshut--something of a rarity--was one that caught Jim's eye.

No. Before anyone asks: Jim didnít buy a tractor yesterday! There are several still in our dooryard awaiting diagnosis and parts!
