Busted Tractors and Rusty Knuckles: Norwegian Torque Wrench Techniques and Other Fine Points of Tractor Restoration

Busted Tractors and Rusty Knuckles: Norwegian Torque Wrench Techniques and Other Fine Points of Tractor Restoration Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a tractor restorer, Roger Welsch is, well, he's a fine writer. Yet despite his mechanical shortcomings (and they are many), he's determined to bring rusted heaps of farm machinery back to life. In this hilarious follow-up to his best-selling Old Tractors and the Men Who Love Them, he chronicles the unlikely restoration of an Allis Chalmers tractor.

The missteps, mishaps, and local characters Roger encountered while reviving his now-beloved tractor (nicknamed "Woodpecker") are recorded in Roger's lively and humorous style. From his earliest misgivings about the project to the bizarre victory party thrown to celebrate the tractor's rebirth, nothing is as it should be in Roger's world of restoration. It's a wonder he can type since he's all thumbs.

Knee-slapping fun for everyone!

Listen-in as Roger tells the humorous story of the challenge that led to the Woodpeckers restoration, and the victory party that followed.
