    • FEATURING: Hart-Parr 22-40. While Hart-Parr No. 3 is the oldest Hart-Parr tractor in existence, the most overlooked machine in the history books is this particular 22-40. Purchased in 1904, it is the “second” oldest Hart-Parr still around, but the accidental discovery made with this machine laid the foundation for great success within the Hart-Parr Company. To make this tractor even more significant, it is still in the hands of the family who purchased it new 116 years ago! Feature tractor owner: Peterson Family - Wheatfield, IN.
    • World Famous: The Olivers and the American Dream. Oliver tractors and plows were the centerpiece of World Famous: The Olivers and the American Dream, a new exhibit at The History Museum in South Bend, Indiana. 
    • All Dressed Up and No Place to Go: With no tractor shows to attend in 2020,we interviewed several Oliver collectors online to see what was being restored in their shops. You may recognize their names from previous articles.
    • Our New Zealand 88s: I was five years old in 1959 when my grandfather took me to see two large green tractors on a railway transporter in my hometown of Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand.  
    • Cletrac Facts: C.W. Watson & Sons, Inc., Pt 2. In 1956, only five percent of C.W. Watson's business was agricultural. Ralph Watson approached Oliver about canceling his agricultural contract. Mr. Watson said the agricultural part of the business was more trouble than anything else. On October 25, 1960, he received a letter by registered mail from Oliver officially terminating their agricultural contract. C.W. Watson & Sons would now have exclusive sale of all Oliver crawlers and Oliver industrial wheel tractors. 
    • Not For Sale: Because Mom Said So. Statistics show that 90% of farms in the United States are family-owned. In that case, all management and at least a portion of the labor are controlled by family. Several years ago, Oliver Heritage visited the Klein Farm, owned by Earl and Bernie Klein of Waconia, MN. In that article, Earl and his oldest son, Jim, proudly stood beside their Oliver Super 66, 77, 88, and 1750 tractors. 
    • Super 55: A girl and her grandpa's tractor. A story by Amanda Griesbaum.
