Oh wow does this take me back...
At homecoming this year, the froshies (I'm in high school) had a
float on a hay wagon, which was pulled by a beautifully restored
Farmall. There were a lot of froshies on the float, who were all
standing up and throwing candy.
The farmall was driven by a frosh who obviously had never looked
twice at a tractor before. She was doing an awful job of driving. She
didn't get the idea of letting the clutch slowly. At one point (near
where I was watching), the parade got a little backed up and when she
needed to stop, she popped the clutch and slammed on the brakes.
The freshman all fell over.
I don't see why anybody who owns a classic like that would let
someone who hasn't driven a tractor before drive a tractor that's
pulling a wagon with UNSECURED people!
It was still funny.
