Today, Heart of a Champion proudly salutes Prince Edward Island’s, Boyd MacQuarrie, as this week’s ‘Saturday Salute’ recipient. ๐Ÿ™‚ Boyd can easily be referred to as the ‘God Father’ of antique tractor restoration in Atlantic Canada! ๐Ÿ™‚ As a boy growing up on a farm, Boyd had what some would figure a natural interest in tractors! As he grew older his interest turned into a passion and he now has a collection to rival any on the eastern seaboard. ๐Ÿ™‚ The latest count numbering close to 60 tractors, most of which he first saved from the crusher and then restored. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometime after he hit 40 in his collection he decided to search for rare or low production models and now has at least two that are โ€˜one of a kindโ€™ in Eastern Canada. ๐Ÿ™‚ Since 2000 he has especially enjoyed showing his collection, be it at a tractor pull, antique show, or at his own tractor show, which has quickly grown to be one of the largest of its kind east of Ontario. Robert was inducted into the Maritime Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2014. ๐Ÿ™‚ Boyd, for all the years of dedication to saving and preserving tractors, you have the Heart of a Champion. Photo’s: FB
