  1. Eason Lilley has a great article in the Winter 2018 edition of Harvester Highlights. The article on page 26 is "IH the Tobacco Specialist Part II" Great job, Eason ! A very interesting and informative article on IH TRACTORS built for Tobacco Farming. I also enjoyed reading of some of the other Company's attempts to compete with IH. Always enjoy your input on IH TRACTORS and TRUCKS, Eason ! Bill
  2. When AM was all we had

    We have WLW in Cincinnati, an AM station that I still listen to quite a bit . In early days they were allowed a lot more power than now and could be heard over a lot of the U.S. I never will forget in 1950 when I was 9 we were vacationing near Orlando, Florida with my Grandparents. One morning I went outside and there was Grandpa sitting in his 1947 Chevy at an odd angle and on a little knoll with a smile on his face. I said what are doing, Grandpa ? He said I moved the car around and am able to pick up WLW ! He said I will be with you in a minute when I am finished listening to the news.
  3. New joke

    A guy told us, "I have never invested in Stock Market but with it surging it is time. " I made large investment a several days ago when the market hit its all time high. Few days later a correction . Then another. I thought this is not for me so I sold out on when it went down for its large loss. I lost a lot of money, he said but I will make it back. Today I invested in Bit coins !

    Dennis, Do I know you ? Sounds like you are close but don't recognize Forgy, OH? I was Parts Mgr at Hal Gilliam Ford for 31 years and developed a lot of contacts hunting down obsolete Ford Parts. We also had Jeep for a while and that gave us access to Dodge and Chrysler parts. Don't have as man Chrysler contacts but would like to try to help. Just read rest of posts and see you found the part. Great. Still like to meet you . I grew up with the family that owns Miami Valley Feed and Grain. Was there yesterday. I feel so bad for them. But they are such a good hard working family that they will get it going. Just so glad that no one was there when Bin let go ! Bill
  5. Birthday wishes to BILLOHIO,Wheels, cowwbboy.

    Thank you all for the Birthday wishes. I will have to report that I saw my shadow today. 6 more weeks of winter ! But is that so bad? 6 weeks from today is March 16, 4 days before the official first day of spring. So 6 more weeks of winter with cold and snow to kill bugs, grubs and weeds in our fields. Then on March 16 comes Spring with no delayed after season snow or record cold temps. The fields will dry out so we can get in and work them and plant early. I will take it ! Bill 3
  6. Dad passed away

  7. DRIVERLESS TRUCKS

    Good point !
  8. New joke

    Took me even longer ! GOOD ONE !
  9. DRIVERLESS TRUCKS

    All this hi-tech talk and I am not even hi-tech enough to post this article on here so you can read it. Sorry, hard to teach an old dog new tricks !
  10. DRIVERLESS TRUCKS

    Today's Springfield News-Sun : Has headline "Tech may be threat to truckers' jobs" In other words driverless trucks need no drivers. Good thing about article , is the picture of a Lonestar leaving Springfield plant delivering trucks. If down the road this happens and no one on board, just driving itself, what keeps a computer hacker from gaining access to it and redirecting it and its load to another destination. I can see it now. A hacker and his friends are bored and decide to have a party. One of them says "I will bring the Beer". He then directs a semi of his favorite brew to the party site ! Or if short on funds, redirect a BRINKS Truck to his house. Of course even if driverless I am fairly sure they would still have an armed guard on board a BRINKS Truck ! The changes we have seen and even more to come !
  11. hey Wilson! happy birthday!

  12. Long time forum member passes away.

  13. Early Cub with hand lift

    Thanks gentlemen for the info ! I will pass this info along to my friend.
  14. Early Cub with hand lift

    Have friend that is restoring his Father-in-law's early Cub. It has a hand lift lever instead of hydraulic lift. He asked if that lever should be red or blue ? I have researched on line and have found pictures of both. Some with a red lever and linkage and some with blue. How do you think they came when new ? Thanks in advance for information.
  15. Sad Report

    Al, Yes, that was Dale. Whatever it took to get the job done, he did. He took on towing and hauling jobs that were quite difficult at times. Good to hear from you, Al. Sorry it had to be because of bad news. Bill
