    Found an H

    If I were retired and had the time/$ to go get it, I'd road trip for 33 hours to get a free H.
  2. They were designed to last 7 years. Only motor IH made in that time period that wasn’t sleeved; they were meant to be made cheap, sold cheap, used and traded off.
  3. THANK YOU this is 100% correct. I’d also like one someday.

    Daytona

    Back when I was a kid dad would have the 500 on but he was never really into it. In 94-95 my favorite car was the yellow 4 Kodak car; man was it fast. Then my uncle got me into watching heavily in 96 and the man in black became my favorite driver. I can still remember the 98 500 as an 8th grader. I did it all; newspaper clippings of races, listened to them on the radio when I couldn’t watch them, etc. After that day in 2001 my driver became Dale Jr. and the poor guy never could live up to what society wanted him to be, which I was fine with- you need to be your own man. I remember my first trip on race weekend to MIS and stepping out onto that track surface in 01 as an employee. Really sure working there was my future. Living 20 miles from the speedway on restarts if the wind was right I could hear it from my front yard. I went twice a year starting in 04. Then they came out with the chase nonsense. Non consistent start times. Start times of 2:30 pm so sit around all day and wait for it to start and not get home till 8 PM and work is the next day. Rule changes weekly to “fit entertainment ratings.” For me they alienated themselves from what started the sport and the fans that built it into what it is. The final nail in the coffin was my driver retired the same year my daughter was born so I couldn’t justify spending $$$ to go to two races a year to watch other people have fun. I’d rather be making my own fun going to tractor shows, camping, vacations etc. So if it’s on and I’ve got nothing better to do I may watch here and there for nostalgias sake but I won’t go out of my way to spend any great deal of time watching or getting into the politics of it anymore. Life moves on I guess.

    John Deere

    Most things back then were spoked wheels. Plows, hay rakes, Beet cultivators, etc. no shame in asking we all we all have to learn somehow.
  6. I forgot I did drive a Quadtrac once when they were relatively new, but it was only around a dealer lot and not solo.
  7. Favorite? I like the look of the late 60s-early 70s Chevys, as well as the 74 IH trucks. I’m also somewhat partial to my 12 Silverado.
  8. The biggest I’ve been fortunate to run is 2+2 guys 3788.
  9. Not knocking cabs but they look ridiculous on a CC IMO. Wearing layers it is. Besides that way I have an excuse to wear my new IH hat.
  10. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJrri6RFhK8 Doing some snow removal. Trust me I’d rather be mowing grass.
  11. The biggest thing to ensure is closed IMO is the area above the fuel tank. Dad put a green one on his H one year and it wasn’t completely closed out above the fuel tank (the area under the steering shaft) and the wind would just cut in there negating almost all effectiveness as a weatherbrake.
  12. I’d leave the blue light and add an Amber one next to it, then run the blue one for fun while parked etc
  13. Literally laughing out loud. This is gold. HAHA
