Hold Tite Farm Scene
I found this model T tire manufactured by the Hold Tite Tire Company while dismantling an old farm building. It was almost buried in the dirt floor surrounded by trash. I cut weathered barn wood to fit inside the tire and attached a windmill, stock tank, three wire fence, and a stained 1" x 6" field. We display this piece when our shop is open for special events.
