    One dark night outside a small town in Minnesota, a fire started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around. When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president rushed to the fire chief and said, "All our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant. They must be saved. I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact." But the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret files. From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby Norwegian rural township volunteer fire company composed mainly of Norwegians over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement, that little run-down fire engine roared right past all the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant. Without even slowing down it drove straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside, the other firemen watched as the Norwegian old timers jumped off right in the middle of the fire fought it back on all sides. It was a performance and effort never seen before. Within a short time, the Norske old timers had extinguished the fire and had saved the secret formulas. The grateful chemical company president announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave fire fighters. The local TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event on film, asking their chief, "What are you going to do with all that money?" "Vell," said Ole Larsen, the 70-year-old fire chief, "Da first thing ve gonna do is fix da brakes on dat focking truck!

    That same day we were working on "my new hooker" he told me he had to pee. I told him to just go over behind the bushes and go. You woulda thought i gave him a whole bag of candy he was so excited. On Monday the daycare kids were all there and outside playing. Suddenly my wife notices 2 streams of pee coming up over the bushes. He was teaching the other boys how to pee outside. I got a phone call... Fast forward a few years and my daughter was hanging out with me working on something in the garage. On Monday she was doing crafts with the other daycare kids. Suddenly she put down her project and said "F.ck it, good enough". Yeah...i got a phone call on that one too....

    A Love Story This love story should help enhance your sensitivity training for the year ahead. Alan and Sandra lived on a cove at Gull Lake, Alberta. It was early winter and the lower portion of the cove had frozen over. Alan asked Sandra if she would walk across the frozen part of the cove to the general store and get him some smokes and beer. She asked him for some money, but he told her, "Nah, just put it on our tab. Old man Stacey won't mind." So Sandra, being the good wife and Alan's true love, walked across the ice, got the smokes and beer at the store and then walked back home across the cove. When she got home with the items she said, "Alan, you always tell me not to run up the tab at Stacey's store. Why didn't you just give me some money?" Alan replied, "Well, Sandra, I didn't want to send you out there with cash when I wasn't sure how thick the ice was!" A love story like this almost brings tears to my eyes...

    Wow , I just started reading this and I can see the winter must be settling in on people 😂 I have been around the 30 , 60 and 70 series since new and the really good tractors if you use them as they were designed . For gear ratios I have never set down and done all the home work for the speeds , differences between 66,86 transmissions , never really mattered to me . The 30 and 60 series have the hyd TA ,rearend housing/range transmission set up like the 06,56,66,86 . The biggest thing I seen with these tractors back in the day was lack of maintainace , correct opperation /adding duals to the 30 /60 series . The clutches were not enough for what they were pulling and the center pivot housing worked ok if you owned a grease gun . I have run the 30/60 series in the field and I still say today there a pulling , nice riding tractor . Could the seat be upgraded , you bet , getting in and out of the cab , yep , lighting 👍 On to the 70 series , this would of been the next generation up graded 2+2. The boys did there home work and this tractor was a tractor , the hinge point fixed, heavier front axel , 50 series back half of the tractor , hyd system upgraded that worked great , more power , inline Bosch injection pump , Switzer turbos , you could run duals all the way around . Because of the merger the tractor got thrown in the scrap pile and that was a big mistake . The Hopless Case Boys though there 94 series crab steer was the ticket , I have news for them !! The deal was Case had all the 4 wheel drives sitting all over the USA and no one bought them so the shut down the super 70's and gave away those 94 series cases . The next version of that 70 series would of had the powershift and the IH single door cab . I have been ask by many of you why I don't build a Super 70 powershift , don't think that has not crossed my mind . Most of you don't understand the work that goes into this stuff and the Dirt Boyz Proving Grounds does not have a foundry and a machining facility , oh and the endless check book 😂 I one of you guys want to donate you center housing out of your super 70 I will have that powershift Super 70 done in a week 😎 Over and out for now , Danny

    So I was in our local antique mall a couple months ago. I know the proprietor well. He had this truck sitting there looking forlorn for $10. It was a Tonka cement truck originally missing some parts and the mixer barrel. I wanted to make a flatbed truck for the boy for Christmas since he loves toy trucks and tractors. The paint is automotive base/clear, bed is walnut, hitch is all custom along with simulated gooseneck ball in the bed. Frame was reinforced with 1/8” bar stock so the hitch would actually be functional. (He loves hooking up his little trailers). Stacks are aluminum tubing polished and bolted to the custom headache rack via drilled and tapped holes and #6 machine screws. The only thing I didn’t do was add a vintage farm name on the door but I don’t think I could have made it look right by hand.
