79 year old farmer sells off his tractor collection, as no one else in his family cared for them. I bet they're looking forward to the inheritance though

a 1941 David Brown tractor that was built for the RAF and used to haul heavy bombers and fuel bowsers into position on airfields.

Paul Rackham has spent 25 years buying up and restoring more than 230 old and rare agricultural machines, amassing what is thought to be by far the biggest collection in Britain. He went to places not commonly though of as tractor locations, like the athletic cricket field, and found 2.

The collection includes the only surviving example of a Holt 75 - a military tractor bought by the British army from the Americans in World War One to replace horses for pulling hulking Howitzer guns to the frontline.
