  • A Cool Thing
  • My daughter and grandson noticed a fellow mowing fields in their neighborhood. All 10 acre parcels. My grandson said, that guy is driving a 8N Ford tractor!
    They took the gentleman something cold to drink, and my grandson told him about "our" 8N. He then went and drove ours down to the road to show the fellow.
    His 8N is all restored, and beautiful. Ours, is Non restored, and not so beautiful.
    Turns out this gentleman goes around the countryside offering to mow folks fields IF they will make a donation to Toys For Tots! Yep, he spends most ever day mowing, and the peoples donations go direct to Toys for Tots, not to him.
    My daughter is having him mow their front field and she donated $150 to the charity. His name is Howard Mears.
    I have reached out to him, and giving him the information about our 8N club. He was thrilled to know about this site.
    Thought you might like to know about a very Nice man, doing some great charity work, and doing it on a 8N.
