Pulling pics of Marshall Myre and bunch of new 66 series at dealer in Mississippi yrs ago


Recommended Posts

Looks like the 656 was made up till 1972 and the new 66 series were introduced in the fall of 1971 so Id say this picture is during the winter of 1971-72 cause ya notice they aint a leaf one on those trees.  Those pics of Marshall Myre are neat and I always liked keeping up with him in the Puller mag back in the 70s and I believe he bought that 966 new cause he pulled a 856 before he pulled it and he came out with it in 1972 and by the early 80s he had gone to four Turbos as seen in his first two pics and that last picture of him was in the Puller and it said Marshall Myre on the last pull of the year that year.

I am not sure-------am thinking Aberdeen, Mississippi (eastern part of state).

I remember it from my travels-------but.my "rememberer" is sorta faded nowadays.

Hopefully somebody else will  chime in.

Awesome pics. Man that dealer had quite a floor plan (inventory)  there didn’t he? Wow. 

Yeep, I saw Marshall Myre pull many a time back during the glory days of pulling. Saw him with both the narrow front end and WFE on the 966. Great times.

In the middle pic, I am assuming that is his gauge pod set up? If so, that's something you don't see every day. 

That's cool looking. I hadn't noticed at first.

My first thought was (and I know it isn't true) anemometer. I actually had to look up what it was called again -wind speed measure-er. All I could think of was ammeter and I knew that wasn't right.

I see Myre Farms was from Illinois.  Was Myre somehow connected to Smith Equipment Company in Aberdeen, Ms?

No I just throwed that dealership pic in at the last minute
