Default Kerosene Annie Under Glass

Walked by JUMP in Boise and realized the Kerosine Annie is now on display.

She looks a little rough around the edges but has survived for the most part. Looks like the hub on one side has a repair a fairly large break. The repair looks like it has crackand along one of the welds. The repair is old but I have no idea if the crack is new

She is fairly well protected but will be exposed to some strong sunlight. Moisture will probably not be a problem. Idaho is a very dry place. Might get some snow in there in the winter.

No kidding. By the time someone gets the bright idea of putting it on parade duty, it'll probably be back in such condition it'll need a LOT of work. :-/

Well I can think of a worse fate!! At least it still exists and can be seen at no charge! I really dislike museums as well. Most things get donated, mothballed and end up like poor Annie but at least they don't end up a new Toyota. A few times in the past I tried to buy something and was told "it belongs in a museum and we plan to donate it" My first thought was always "how many museums have YOU ever visited?"

Annie is on display and can be seen. Was Oscar Cooke's display better, though he originally saved it and did some restoration. How will it deteriorate so severely as one post indicates? Let's enjoy that it's still around and at least two folks cared so much for it.

The question of 'is this a good thing or not' is a tough one.

A lot of collectors don't seem to care for it. Me - I want to see it run so I don't care for the static display idea much.

The interesting thing is every non-collector I have talked to love it. I suspect more eyes will see it on static display because it's always out there.

One thing to note, while I was looking at it yesterday, I got to talking to a gentleman about the welds on the hub and a few other places. Soon we was talking about his father who worked as a welder building battleships during WWII. It was an interesting conversation so I guess having Annie out there isn't all bad.

There are good museums and there are bad museums same in America as in Europe.

Personaly i do not like the modern museum with the TV screens and buttons to keep the family’s busy.

The thing here is that most people in the world seems not enough to care about the most early tractors that once where made specialy Kerosine Annie.


I was last year in the Rijksmuseum at Amsterdam.
In every hall there are guards and camaras to watch the public.
And there where many paintings that even had there own guards as extra like the Sunflowers van Gogh had 2 guards and the NightWatch Rembrandt had 4 guards etc etc.

There are many museums in North America also having these kind of paintings and realy wonder how they are protected.


Last weekend was near T-Rex Trix from Montana in Leiden Holland the only North America original huge Dinosaurus that is hidding outside North America.

I coult realy come close towards the dino.
But there are signs that say do not touch me and there where 4 guards including an lot of camara’s survelance.

Many years ago 2 van Goghs where stolen from an well known museum overhere.
It took years to have them back and they found them near the mob in Italy.

I am missing the camara’s and guards in this.
The upper section of the glass show case is open to climp with an ladder in it or use an big hammer to break the glass.
Mention it is easy now to take parts of Annie as sovenir or artifact.

But it seems that most people do not see this yet or do not have intrest in it yet

Yes the tractor is dry but that is all we can say.

This is told by an collector,

"Things without all remedy, should be without regard. What's done is done."

This horse has been kicked to death, then dug up and kicked some more. It happened. Period. It doesn't excite me, but it's behind glass and hasn't been melted down.

Tractors of that stature should be in a proper building on display in my opinion

Annie will outlive all of us, heck she probably has most of us already, I think someday in the future she will be out of this prison and hopefully running again. I can only hope to be around then.

If anyone wants to look at any of the tractors at Jump, stop by the front desk and they will let you up to see them. There are a number of security guards wandering around so you need to stop at the front desk so they an let security know that you are gong to be wandering around.

Thought this was interesting, had not seen one of these before. 'The Gray Tractor' Kind of looked like a roller. I thought the rear wheel was a big single roller.

The Gray "Drum Drive" Tractors are pretty Rare, but there are a few of them out there.

Oilpulled has one.

If I remember right there was one on Morris Blomgren's Sale several years ago.

Trying to remember now where else I've seen one.

There was one in southern Mn, but got sold to someone out west, this might be the tractor shown, I got the engine running for the fellow and then he sold it. There are some around.

There's a Gray shown every year at the show in Edgar WI. Don't remember the owners name.
