Murphy Drives a FordJD AWhere are the wheels?Wayne in Pull Pit

Antique tractors and engines are an important part of our industrial history, our culture, and our way of life. They are also fun and interesting for the whole family, especially children.

To celebrate the 10th Annual Eliot (ME) Antique Tractor and Engine Show, director Eric Gleske brought the big camera to record the displays, the parades, tractor pulls, and more, creating a fast-paced and informative look at this unique hobby passion, and some of the people behind the show.

This short program was created, as much as for any other reason, for Murphy Gleske (cute kid in the green sunhat to the left...), who, at the tender age of two years old, could already differentiate between John Deere, Farmall, Ford, Allis-Chalmers, and other tractors. (Ok, the Deeres are easy to find by ear alone...) If your child is anything like my son, this program will have a permanent spot in your video collection.

NEWS: This independent program received a CINE Gold Eagle award
for Short Documentary in the spring of 2006

So you know it must be worth watching!
