Just got back from seeing "Walk the Line." What model Oliver does Johnny Cash back into the lake? Is it something like a Super 88? I don't know my Olivers very well. If you haven't seen the movie, I recommend it.
Best,

I still have all his old vinyl albums, but no turntable anymore. BTW, I hadn't realized the simmering conflict between him and his dad.

I haven't seen the movie and I haven't seen Johnny Cash's tractor but I have seen President Eisenhower's Massey Ferguson. I think it's a 35.

Les - is the 35 sitting at the farm in Gettysburg? I never noticed it.

There's a link to an article discussing that tractor and the double they used for it in the movie - an account given by the tractor's owner. I somehow think it was posted on here not that long ago.

Eisenhower must have used all unique brands...............Locals say it was big news back years ago when Cockshutt gave him a 50? Don't remember the model well, but everyone else had tractors that could pull up to three bottoms then, with most tugging two still, and he gets one given to him to yank 4 :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

TP, &PPO every Memorial day, outside of Gettysburg, Stanley Wolf puts out around 100 tractors and related equipment he has. He has one tractor given to Eisenhower, by, I think is cockshut. He also has alot of red power and white demo's. Yes, he even has some green weenies and orange pumpkins. Free to the public every Memorial day weekend. Also has supposedly a milk bottle for every dairy in Adams county. Lots to see and well worth the trip to see if within an hour or so. He says it takes him 300 gal of gas for the weekend. Also has a self propelled NH baler. I am going to try next year to go over and take pictures. Don't know how many years Stanley will be doing this.
IH all the way. 7120 mfd,5140mfd,1066,986,666,CNH T5050, 34A, lots other red to come and some gone.

Huffy - I had no idea Stanley even had anything - I must not have been paying attention. Rodney is a name I hear more often. :ph34r:

Rodney is Stanley brother. Rodney put out about10-15 around the same time( maybe July4Th). Stanley had a pretty big operation years ago. Still farms some but has scaled way back. He live next to the campground on 30 that floods all the time. Road names not sure of. He lives on the road that goes frm 30 to Eisenhowers farm. (backhorse tavern?) Heck I drive all over town and couldn't tell you half the street names. Local joke s third monument on the left.

Huffy - I never did learn the names of the roads that didn't go down 15 or 30 East. No shame in not knowing the names of all of them - lots of places not worth going. My dad seems to know them all and he sure likes to toot his own horn when he mentions a road and I don't know what it is.
