Elmer Couwenhoven of Sheboygan couldn’t bear to see his first tractor go to scrap, so he had the 1949 Farmall C restored and fitted with a V8 engine and chrome dual exhaust. He takes it on antique tractor rides like one that wandered through southern Manitowoc County Oct. 13.

KIEL — Elmer Couwenhoven, 80, of Sheboygan built a lot of fond memories around his first tractor, a 1949 Farmall C.
“I’ve had it since 1952. Bought it after I graduated from high school. It was three years old when I got it,” the retired dairy farmer said.
