We find antique tractor (and Farm and Dairy) enthusiasts everywhere! Reva Montgomery, of Lordstown, Ohio, was in Florida recently, and drove a 1950s Farmall M on a 50-mile tractor cruise with a group from the Florida Flywheelers of Fort Meade, Fla. The cruise traveled from the 240-acre Flywheelers Park, through the countryside full of orange groves, around lakes and into Frostproof, Fla., where the caravan was part of the Heritage Day parade through town. While there, Montgomery, with Farm and Dairy in tow, ran across the officers of the Ashtabula Antique Engine Club. Pictured are Montgomery, club president Henry Lipps, from Gustavus, Ohio, and his wife, Linda, who is the club secretary; club vice president Wayne Johnson, Bristolville, Ohio, and his wife, Marilyn. Montgomery adds that part of the proceeds from the cruise and other activities throughout the year are donated to a local FFA club for tractor restoration.
