  1. My brother has a nice collection of Farmalls, but they're not parade tractors, he still uses them. He has a C, an H, and the M. All he needs is an A, and my older brother has one of them. He did have a 350 Farmall, but he sold it. Sold it for $800, I told him i'd have given him $800 for it myself. He was planting potatoes, onions, and cabbage yesterday.
  2. A few more pics. from the Florida correspondent at bike week in Daytona, Florida and from the Country Thunder music festival. Here's some wimmens eatin' some corn dogs- and some wimmens not eatin' corn dogs- A dog- I found a nest of big Mack trucks this morning- Me on my brother's Farmall M- Brookneal, Va. this morning. Yep, the redhead came to visit for my birthday.
  3. The last time I was there P.L. was working in the store, which was formerly known as Duncan's Store. He was doing some paper work, I guess he used the store as his office. But anyway, he invited us into the store and showed us around. It was crammed full of stuff the American Picker guys would go crazy over. Old signs, parts, emblems off of many different kinds of trucks, oil and antifreeze cans, and more. Here's a little of what was in there-
  4. One of my all time favorite cab styles. Saw this at Macungie last year.
  5. I saw that unit before, this was in Troutman, N.C. in 2007.
  6. I went to the beer store a few minutes ago, and passed by this logging job right down the road about a half mile from here. I can hear the chipper from here. So when I got home I grabbed my camera and went back to take a few pictures, since there was this big Mack truck there- A big Mack truck and a wood chipper. I didn't even notice the 5th. wheel on the ground when I was there. They have a lot of equipment there-
  7. A couple more. Pretty cool- I didn't even realize what this was yesterday, I must have went over to the store and got a 12 pack and drank it.
  8. more from sunny Florida-
  9. ''Odds and Ends".
  10. I was almost at bike week myself. I called in yesterday. Dispatcher said "I have a Lakeland Fl, an Erie, Pa, a blah-blah-blah. I said "I'm going to take a shower, and i'll call you right back". I'd been pulling a raggedy- I meant a real fine- fiddy- tree foot trailer all week, and another driver had my trailer with a load of lumber on it. I called back, and heard "just loaded that Lakeland- It's on another truck- didn't know you wanted it." I'd been asking for a Florida load for a year. A year. Yeah, i was, and am, highly pissed off. Trying to get over it, but i'm pissed...went on the social security website yesterday. Not getting any younger, and after years of service get shit upon like this...it just sucks.
  11. Wow... I would marry that woman in a heartbeat. Not these wimmens, but the redhead that took these pictures.
  12. Breaking news, this just in from bike week in Fl.-
  13. I'd buy you a beer or 12 any time my friend!
  14. ummm... so, that means... uh...gee Larry, just ask $13, 455,000.16, maybe you'll get lucky.
  15. this just in, from bike week-
  16. As we were saying, you can not over secure a load. Like the old saying, "you can go down the mountain too slow many times- but you can only go down it too fast once". There's been 2 accidents in the last 2 weeks involving loads of steel that slid forward under hard braking. The first was a fatality, killing a 26 year old driver in Minnesota. And just a few days ago this driver was air lifted to the hospital with severe injuries. I never saw all the details in any report. But all I see in this picture is straps. I am not an expert in anything. Been driving a truck since 1979, mostly hauling steel. And you can not haul steel with straps. Straps have a certain amount of stretch in them, no matter how tight you get them. If they had no stretch, you'd never even be able to get them loose. And when the steel on your trailer slides forward under extreme braking- which it will- the straps are going to be immediately cut, because they aren't as strong or as hard as steel. Then you have no restraints at all, and disaster ensues. OK, rant over for now, pictures- our Florida correspondent sent these pictures in from bike week- And she took this picture- a Florida bird right in her back yard, with a crawfish in it's mouth!..or beak...or bill...whatever you call it. Great picture though! I saw a big Mack truck- I saw this F model in Chase City but couldn't get a pic, so here's the street view of it- Saw this MB on a facebook page- And I saw this airplane in Ga.
  17. No- according to my research, if 2 used plugs are worth 87 bucks, 8 would be worth 696 dollars. Being as yours are out of 1. a real race car- 2. a true american classic race car- that tells me that yours should be worth about $14,867.14!
  18. Me too Bob, 66 and 67 Chevy II's are some of my favorite cars ever- like 66 and 67 GTO's and Chevelles, but that price seems more than a little ridiculous.
  19. No, not the case. I was behind him, and I was wondering myself if he was going to chain them. He did not. I was in the loading spot, and he pulled ahead out of the way to strap them and then he was out the door. They were in coil racks, but I don't know if they were off the floor. As long as they're not touching the floor you're good, but I always liked to be able to get my fingers under them.
  20. Beer...that's the main thing!
