Goal: Have the Steam Tractor in the 2014 Hood River 4th of July Parade

Thank you everyone! We successfully restored the steam tractor and had it run in the parade! Now we're just after a fresh coat of paint and some minor detail work to really make this rig "shine!"

A great big thanks to all of the folks who are helping to restore our 1910 Aultman & Taylor Steam Traction Tractor. It is your financial backing, time, expertise, or volunteer assistance that is enabling this project toward it's completion.
