  1. Stu's show IH equipment

    Very nice pics Shawn. I can't understand why they put such piss ant small tires on the front of that 806.
  2. Gonna bring this up anyhow...

    Another bumper sticker I see frequently down here in Texas is this: "If Guns Kill People, Do Pencils Misspell Words?"
  3. Weight/rock boxes

    Why would authentic IH front end "suitcase" weights drop in price? I've always figured $1.00 per pound.
  4. When AM was all we had

    Years ago I remember listening to WJR AM 760 out of Deetoilet, er, I mean Detroit, and also CKLW AM 800 "The Big 8" out of Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Does anyone here remember the Dick Purtan show, the morning radio announcer / DJ on CKLW? I wonder if Dick Purtan is still alive. He was hilarious.
  5. Identify the problem on this IH Farmall 1066

    Well if we are in nit-picker mode.... The the hand grab handle by the TA lever is upside down. Lol....:
  6. Anyone ever have a hat like this guy

    Well I don' have the cap but I do know I have that "More Power to the Ground" 2+2 brochure in my collection. I recognize it. But it's packed away and hasn't seen the light of day in ages.
  7. The Passing of a Forum Member

    Kevin, Dan and family, I am very sad and sorry to hear this news about Mike. Thank you for posting. My sincere condolences. Rick G. in Texas.
  8. White 9700

    I've got that same WHITE 9700 combine brochure in my brochure collection. I recognize it. It hasn't seen the light of day in ages.
  9. Sharp 1256 puller from back in the good ole days

    Safety first. Kid right beside pulling track, guy riding on front of sled. Real smart.
  10. Big Roy

    Cool. Thanks for posting. So where is the museum where that thing is located? It would be neat to have a 1/16 scale ERTL of that monster.
  11. Possibility of a 51st state

    Yes that map looks good. Name the blue section New California as proposed, but rename the yellow section Calif_ _kupia.
  12. Ether (starting fluid) sickness?

    Oh you ignite it. Duh ok. Well that doesn't sound too smart. Don't see the percentages of that working that often. Sounds risky.
  13. Ether (starting fluid) sickness?

    I don't get it. What good does ether do to seat tires?
  14. snow shovel

    Back when I used to live in Michigan I used a combination grain scoop shovel to get into the knooks and crannys,, a Honda single stage snow thrower, or a John Deere self propelled two-stage snow thrower. Funny story about the John Deere- I sold the thing on Craigslist after we got back from the Middle East and knew we were then moving to Texas. Some stupid SOB from over 60 miles away saw my ad (with pictures) and accused me that I stole it from him. He called me direct from my ad and told me that and that he was going to call the cops on me. I told him to go F_ _K himself and to go right ahead and call the cops on me and then I hung up on him. I'll be danged if the Michigan State Police didn't show up at my Mom's place!!!!!! Well, I had bought the thing new for myself from one of our local John Deere dealers in Berkey, Ohio and I still had my sales receipt and sales papers complete with serial number. The police checked the number on my machine against my paperwork and they were satisfied it was mine. They called the guy on the spot in front of me and told him this wasn't his stolen machine. The guy hung up on the cop. The officer told me this type of thing sometimes happens with Craigslist deals. He said it may have been a scam or the guy may have legitimately had his machine stolen. The officers apologized to me but then we had a little laugh over it. Within the next couple weeks after that I successfully sold the machine to a legit happy caller.
  15. Clean Original IH 966

    Not too shabby. Missing a few incidental parts but that could be easily remedied.
