We paid a visit to Clyde Jr. yesterday. Susan and I happened to be in the area, so we stopped by to see if Clyde was around and were fortunate enough to find Clyde and his friends out in the yard, still cleaning and clearing the property. In fact, the shed that contained American Ickers was being taken down at the time. The shed simply no longer exists, so I’m happy that we have the picture to remember it by.
On another note, I got a nice email from Clyde’s cousin, Frederica, who lives in Nigeria. We had a nice exchange regarding the pictures of Clyde’s place, as well as another possible location nearby that she wanted me to shoot someday.
On this image, the lineup that Clyde chose for his tractors reminded me of the start of a NASCAR race, and since Clyde is resurrecting these beauties one at a time in preparation for sale, I thought the title would be fitting.
