Now-on to 2019! This is the fifth year of the program, and we wanted to do something special, so we have not one, but two tractors to give away on December 7th, 2019 at the Southern Nationals in Tunica, Mississippi!
The photo below shows one of the actual tractors: The Farmall M was donated by Robert Niethammer of Saline, Michigan; a huge thank you to Robert for your kindest of gestures! It is a 532cid Baker Engines machine and is a nationally recognized tractor in Division 3 and 4 NATPA competition. It has also been a runner-up in King of the Hill competition at the Southern Nationals under Robert's guide. While we are proud of all the tractors that have come through the program, this tractor is a leap forward in performance and potential.
But wait, theres more!
The Unstyled G shown owned by Ron Kolweier is what the 2019 Unstyled G will look like. Still in the build process at the shop of nationally respected 2-cylinder specialist Jim Matzenbacher, some of the best of the best in the 2-cylinder world have their hands in the build. It is THE green tractor build folks have been wanting, and it will be an equal to the M in potential and performance!
