I enjoyed very much the story featuring Robert Lefever in the August issue of Farm Collector. There is, however, an error that others may have already pointed out. Below the inset about the Hoke tractor is a picture of a General tractor made by the Cleveland Tractor Co. It apparently has no relevance to the Hoke tractor but admittedly there are similarities. The General is a 2-cylinder tractor and was featured in the February 2003 issue of Farm Collector.

Editor’s note: Thanks for the note, Doc! You are correct: The photo was misidentified. Here’s an image of a Hoke, easily identified by the letter “H” on the gas tank.
