  1. This IH plow is being used as yard art outside a BP in Morton, IL.
  2. Well, I made it home just before 5 PM tonight. The Mrs. and I left Du Quoin around 4:30 PM yesterday afternoon following the IHCC National Meeting. Drove up to Morton, IL and stopped for the night. Roughly half way home. Did not get up real early, we were both tired. The trip was uneventful, and smooth sailing until a trailer tire blew out. One exit before we planned to get off I-80, just 18 miles from home! Let go just in time to ease off the ramp and into a truck stop on the concrete. Took only 45 minutes to change. So thankful! Now, I need to find the enthusiasm to unload and unhitch the trailer!?
  3. Pre production A with several unique features. Owned by a fellow Iowa collector.
  4. I really enjoyed visiting with Mr. Plow and seeing this unit in person. Photos hardly do his craftsmanship justice! I enjoyed watching him build the 60 on the forum, can't wait for the next project. ?
  5. My wife and I passed the gentleman driving the 5288 and 80 snowblower to the grounds on Wednesday evening. He was a dozen miles out at that point.
  6. I am proud to announce that Iowa Chapter 5 won the bid to host the Roundup in 2024! It will be held in Spencer, Iowa. We will be part of of a yearlong celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Farmall Regular; beginning in Grand Island in 2023 and ending in Spencer in 2024. We will also celebrate 70 years of the Super MTA and 50 years of the 5 millionth 1066. I will serve as a co-chairman for the event.
  7. More beauties from today.
  8. I let Sledge play with MTO long enough. Here is today's group.
  9. Last of my photos. More later.
  10. This is the time capsule 500 hour 1566. Mr. Long and I were both in love with it!
  11. A few I took today. I started on the opposite end as Sledgehammer. First 2 photos are my 666 Diesel, known as "Lucy".
  12. The Mrs. and I arrived this evening. All registered and The 666 "Lucy" is parked among the featured tractor area. No pics as a thunderstorm was rolling in. Motel in Carbondale messed up our reservation, so we were upgraded to a 2 room suite! ? Wife is happy!
  13. Our 1974 GMC 6500 has a 427 with the 5 and 4. We pick the gear on the rear box to fit the situation and just row through the 5.
  14. The switch to the 310 coincided with the switch to the 291 gas in late 66. A 1966 310 is difficult to find.
  15. Yeah, she went from drag slicks to decent rubber! She sat low in the rear with those wore out 15.5-38. Now with decent 16.9-38, that step is a lot higher!
  16. Started approximately 7 PM, finished just after 9. Had to use the wire wheel on both rims to clean up rust. (The tires previously had calcium.) New tubes, of course.
  17. I have had this one 2 months now. Last Friday night, I mowed in 1 evening what took the cub cadet 2 1/2 evenings. Still love the cadets, just need to mow faster! Use the woods belly mower for the large open spaces.
