My tractor's sexy

The view from the tractor seat.
Um, maybe not.

Actually, this is my Dad's tractor, an International 140 IH. We don't know the year because he bought it used (very used), but it was made sometime between 1958 and 1979. It's very basic, and a little scary to drive because the brakes are weird. It's pretty busted up as you can see, but it gets the job done. And it's RED, so you know I like it.

I learned how to plow last Saturday. Now, this may surprise you that I didn't know how to plow already, being that I'm a country girl and all. But Dad is very particular with his tractor and doesn't let just anyone drive it. :-)

For the record, my row was rather straight. Everyone was impressed. Maybe I could have a career in farming after all?
