    Jody wrote on Thursday, August 15, 2002 (PDT):
  • Well where do I start?Ok I have done lots of searching into the Pacer # 16 which I own have found out lots of thing.Every place I looked for info on the age no body was sure they said they only built them a short time.Well I found some one who knew he was a dealer in the late 40's and now his grandson and son run the dealership.He told me that Massey only offered the Pacer for 2 years which was 54&55 he even dug up his archives for me.They where the original priceing books for the dealers.That tell them price of tractor plus how much each option cost so they could tell the customer how much the tractor was going to cost.Well maybe I'm wrong but I needed to get that off my chest because that little wonder of a machine I've been with for 33 years now and it has never said no to anything that I have asked from it from plowing snow to bailng hay to plowing fields(not big ones).My grandfather purchased it for his little farm the spring of 54 it never saw the show room it was shipped directly to the farm and was preped there and in use that day pulling a speed sprayer.Alright I stop now thanks for reading what I wrote sorry it was so long.
