The Stock Market and the economy might be down but there is one sector that is going High! That sector is Antique Tractors. It really is incredible how fast collectible antique tractors have gained in value over the years and today more than ever.
It turns out a lot of people are sinking their money into antique tractors and turning out a tidy profit. Heck European investors and collectors are coming to the USA buying rare antique big farm tractors and shipping them back to Europe to age some more.
As a result they are getting scarce which is driving the prices higher. How High? 50k, 100k, 250k and more. For Europeans it's a double scoop because the exchange rate lets them spend $60,000 to get $100,000 worth of tractors in the US.
