  3. 10/30/21 Not a lot of Red here but never less we had a tractor drive Central Cal ! they traveled 21 miles to a fantastic BBQ provided by Scoto Bros of Merced . after lunch they traveled back to starting point making 42 mile Drive. 32 tractors made it to lunch . They traveled through Residential , industrial , by the old Castle Air Force base and out through vineyards and orchards all lined and speckled with old oak trees . lunch rendezvous was at a old sprawling beautiful Parreira Dairy farm under the oaks along the Merced River and because of a nice rain here last week the setting could not be nicer. I did not take a tractor this year , I had the pickup and a big tool box just in case . my pictures are little limited but I wanted to share a great tractor day with you guys and assure you that next year there will be more Red ! Lol the restored IH , Chevy , Studebaker trucks belonged to Mr Parreira the dairy and landowner and the old equipment was a retirement yard on the farm . the pic of the old Oliver Baler and tractor is to show one of our members , Eddie , what he missed ! Lol He likes IH but loves Oliver ! Imagine that ! BTW what do you think of that BBQ pit ? tony

  13. My Nieghbor Eddie Back in February 2021 getting the 856 and Freeman baler ready for the season . I remember this girl when bought new ,was worked hard on a cotton and hay farm , owner used every inch of her then retired her as he switched to grapes and did not need it. It sat behind a shed in ill health for years , original owner dies , Eddie saves her from the scrapper and or the air board ! Buys it from Estate. Gave her a good amount of TLC and she is now an everyday worker and chore tractor. He also knew her from new and saw what she went through and I think she has a permanent home . He does not pamper them but she gets what she needs. tony

  21. Back in early 50’s when my Dad decided to start breaking some of his native pastures to farm , He bought a Farmall M and a MM UTN as his workhorses. The M was equipped with propane at dealer and MM was factory LP . He used MM for tillage and the M for planting , cultivating , cotton picker conversion . the LA Case was my Grandfather in law’s and my late father in Laws tony
  22. 10/9/21 Return of Pioneer Days Parade held Main Street of Paso Robles , Ca . Central Coast area of Ca . After bowing out to Covid last year. Beautiful fall day for a parade ! I took two of my older girls , the 52 MM UTN LP and the 1945 LA Case LP , John Domingo's my baler helper drove the LA and I drove the MM Loved picking out our own “Ray54” from the crowed as we rode by and heard his cheering ! Parade route was longer and appeared to be many more spectators then pre covid. I was able to capture few pictures and I will try posting them all accept videos which is a whole different endeavor . Most of pictures are before or after parade once parade started not much chance for pictures on my part. Rather then trying to narrating pictures, I'll answer any question of pictures. tony
