  1. Welcome aboard! Are you headed to the Red Power Roundup in a month or so?
  2. I can't say for sure, because it's been several years since I got rid of it, but I'm pretty sure my 800 Cyclo had a plate like that
  3. Sweet! Wish GM would come out with something like this right out of the factory
  4. I always figured they would do that with the automatic toll takers (here in IL it's called an "I- Pass".) If it reads you making the next toll booth too soon, you get a ticket. Thankfully, those have probably been around for nearly 20 years, and it hasn't happened yet, anyway.
  5. My folks have had them for several years now. Mom puts out a few feeders for them. Each of the last two years, we have had an Oriole around too. He seemed to hang around my parents' longer than he stuck around my place. (Don't know if it was the same one, but at each of our places there only seemed to be one bird, and we live less than a mile apart.)
  6. Many of you who have been buying the Farmington Implement DVD's may recognize the name Al Rucker. He moved up through the ranks from photographer to run the Hickory Hills photographic center for IH. Undoubtedly, he was responsible in one way or another for many of the photos and films we still enjoy today in catalogs, shopping guides, the DVD's, etc. He was interviewed a time or two on the DVD's, as well. I was fortunate enough to bump into him a time or two at a toy or tractor show; and when I said hello, he was very friendly and talked fondly of his IH days. It looks like Mr. Rucker pas
  7. I remember the days when even the straw chopper on the back of that 4420 would have been sold separately! (By the way... both machines look super sharp!)
  8. Very nice! I'd love to stumble upon one someday...
  9. I disagree just a little bit, there... i would say that4- 7 year old kids, who would be the prime candidates for a pedal tractor are just like kids that age have always been, and would pedal the h_ll out of one if given a chance. They are too young to be addicted to electronics on their own. If it is the case, blame the parents in that instance, not the kid.
  10. People watching is one of my favorite hobbies! You're right, the airport is one of the best places; I always enjoy picking up or dropping off someone, and usually try to get there early and/ or stay late just to do that. Another good spot is a county or state fair... grab something to eat... pick a spot on a bench... and just watch the people go by
  11. I'm admittedly no lawyer, but I'm pretty sure that unless the government prosecutes somebody for something posted on this site, NO 1st amendment rights have been violated.
  12. Here we have an H, M, M-TA, 400, 560, and an 806.
  13. I picked up a small ultrasonic cleaner the other day after being curious about one for a while. One thing I've heard is how good they are at cleaning carbs, so I think one of my first jobs will be a carb off an M that I would like to rebuild. My question for guys that use them is, what cleaners do you use in them. I thought about Simple Green or something similar for dirty/ greasy stuff, but is there something better for all the little ports and jets on a carb? Also, I've seen guys using Evapo Rust on rusty items... does this do a better job than just an overnight soak, or is it just quicker?
  14. Took me a minute to figure out who "Dr. Gates" referred to... to be honest, I really haven't put a lot of thought into his opinions on this matter. I guess his billions could fund a lot of research into matters such as this, although he would be paying the guys in lab coats, not putting one on himself. A quick Google search, though, did turn up a Reuters article from May 2020 that debunks the rumor of him wanting to implant a chip with the virus. A "digital certificate" seems to indicate more an electronic database of health records... not that I'm totally comfortable with that, but the w
