Got my first 8N (now have four) in April 1994. Neighbors on small farm next to mine were getting a divorce. My wife called me at work saying someone had stopped looking for the place with the 8N for sale. She knew nothing about it so couldn't help, but I rushed home and found the neighbor woman next door. She said her soon-to-be ex was negotiating to sell the 8N to someone at work, but she said she wanted to sell it first. I gave her $1,005 for the '52 8N, a heavy-duty Dearborn loader, a one-bottom plow and a set of tire chains. Slightly worried about their divorce situation, I got a bill of sale, drove the N home and, possession being nine-tenths of the law, stuck it in my garage. (I was willing to cancel the sale if the divorce settlement required it.) Other than losing its prime if it sits for too many weeks without running, it has been a great tractor as old tractors go.
