14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Jim I think you meant sixty years ago? My family had a couple of those too. I still like to hear that pop pop pop pop ----pop pop pop pop.... Wonderful tractors..  You could add a long belt and grind grain, making your own livestock feed also with these tractors...
