Showing Her Age

February 9th, 2016

The old red truck is showing her age. She’s our plow truck, in fact she’s been plowing this driveway for many, many years. With our last snow storm, the 49 year old engine mounts gave out.

She’s not down for the count, parts are on order and a plan is in place. It’s amazing to have a vehicle that’s 10 years older than me still working hard around the farm.

With tender loving care and a little luck, she’ll be able to keep on trucking for years to come! Even though our other vehicles are also getting old, she makes them all look like spring chickens.

How old is your oldest vehicle?
