  1. Happy Birthday Bitty ! Hope it’s a great day ! tony
  2. In my perspective , I like seeing prices climb gradually , it gives our love of these old girls a value ,and encouragement to maintain them , at least it takes away the stigma of them being just junk . over the years I have restored or bought old IH models that impacted my life growing up and reminder of my Dad and nieghbor’s who were loyal IH farmers . I would love to continue collecting but my age and body are telling me it’s time to clean and drive them instead of dismantling and trying to get them back together . Lol . and a little thing call “Room” my sheds are pretty full . as I enjoy my old girls and insure them , shelter them , provide maintence it’s nice to know that perhaps when I am gone someone will appreciate their value and they will not go to the kill shelter . my big problem is I fall in love with them and have no idea what value it would take to part with one . Having said all this my heart still pounds for a 1466 Black stripe , who knows might still have one more in me . Lol tony
  3. Happy Belated Birthday Sandhiller ! Hope it was great ! tony

  7. Good one ! Twostepn2001 ! I ask Carol why Las Vegas , Bay Area , LA , always look so much better and beautiful in small rear view mirror then they do in the big front view windshield ? she says my mind set , but I think it’s so much more then that !lol perhaps much better quality glass in small rear view mirror ! Lol tony
  8. I agree BJ these mirrors would do the job well ! However,they are in rough shape and you cannot believe the damage to doors from years of hanging there. After all the welding and door repair hate to have something big again. Vibrating on repaired area everytime open or close the door. At this point I am leaning to the small square mirrors in pictures above. Thank you for your thoughts B.J. Tony
  9. Carol and I are planning to be there ,God willing . I have had three hospital visits since last Sept. for heart and pneumonia , last visit being a heart Ablation , so now I am praying to get my stamina back to make the trip . we have , Golf cart rented , and camping spot booked , motor home is serviced and now we are saving all our change for Diesel ! Lol Hopfully making it through my show chairman ship in April will be a good test for Ohio . I think Ohio is going to be a great show ! Perhaps because my 1rst RPRU was Mansfield Ohio in 2006 !! It’s was great imho tony
  10. 3/10/22 few more inches of progress new plates were made and we were able to save one original lic, plate holder that still was on there . more mirror type to look at . Have not made my mind up yet , My gut is moving toward the square one. Tony

  17. Sorry to hear this, Hope you'll continue to improve and they find a good answer. I agree about ambulance rides, have had two recently , Not quite the level of comfort that I thought they would be ! ( I had never been in one till this fall) However, certainly worth their money as they got me there in time to be able to perhaps ride in another one sometime in the very distant future hopefully. lol. Prayers Rick, Tony
  18. Yes and its going higher! As ray54 mention above , there are two factors at play in my opinion . First; the continued water shortage in CA.not encouraging hay production. Second ; Competion of competing crops for available open land. Meaning so much hay ground has gone into permanent crops because of more stable ROI whether it be from water, land cost, labor availability . However, few guys are talking cotton and Hay, after abandoning them years ago, because of their current high value, but equipment is also a limiting factor if one has been away from it for some years Tony
  19. Three twine green well cured dairy hay, 2022 crop out of Navada and Arizona milk hay tested, 400.00 ton and up last week in Calif. BTW three twine milk hay bale weight 110 to 125 lbs. Tony
  20. So sorry for your loss ! I never met him but I know his boys and have done quite a bit of business with them. Always good transactions. May he RIP . His family will be on my prayer list along with you his friend. Tony
  21. So sadden to hear this ! I felt very confident that he would pull through. However, the Lord's will be done and Jeremy is home . Carol and I will continue praying for His family as they will need so much strenght from the Holy Spirit going forward. Tony
  22. Prayers for Jeremy and the family . HE and your family has been added to our prayer list Tony
