    Looks like the car in front of you in the third picture is losing some sort of fluid that’s leaving a trail all the way to the smoking or steaming vehicle. 

    I noticed that too, but I think the trail was already there and there's a bug splat on the windshield right over the car, I didn't see anything out of the ordinary when I took the picture. It looks like the trail goes into the mandatory truck stop area in the picture before that one.

    never did ask you,,,why did you sell it...bob

    They stopped having two of the local shows that I always took it to, the Toga Benefit, and the Stonewall Antique Power Show. The man that started the Toga Benefit, held at the Toga Volunteer Fire Depart in Toga, Va. to help people in the area that needed it most, passed away and nobody kept it going. And the man who held the Stonewall show passed away too, and nobody kept that going either.

    So for the most part, the mixer just sat, deteriorating. We all know the worse thing you can do is let a vehicle sit, unused. So when I needed to put a new roof on the house, and my ex needed a car after hers got totalled in Lynchburg I decided to sell it. And I sold it way too cheap, but I was glad to see it go to a good home.  I got enough for it to put a new metal roof on, and pay the difference between the totaled Saturn and a new 2001 Impala.

    I remember some "One post Wonder" being Butt hurt about "his" Picture..

    But did anything become of It...????

    I remember some butt-hole named Chris Sissick came on here one time and gave Mark ( vision386 ) a hard time for posting one of his pictures of a Mack. I remember him, because he had a picture of an F.L. Moore truck parked at a truck stop in N.J. on Hank's site. Hank said you could use the pictures for your own use or educational purposes, just not to post them on facebook or your own website.

    Freightrain knows about those T shirts. There's a little fuel stop there in Roaring Spring, I don't remember the name of it. Not very big, but it has some truck parking.

    Bet the Amish would take those ancient machines in a second!

    Donks!

     

     

    I think that's the first one of those reaper machines, or binders i've seen since I was a kid. I remember seeing Lee Hatcher pulling one up rt.13 behind his Farmall M and thinking it was a broke down combine. Billy French was the only one around who even had a combine at that time, it was a pull type and he did everybody's combining for them, until my Dad got one.

    Anyhow, my uncle Buck told me it wasn't a combine. It had the reel in front like a combine, so I thought "combine".  The wood has long since rotted off of this one. I guess these were used in the threshing machine days? The threshing machine was like a combine, but it was stationary, you parked it in the field and you had to cut the grain and bring it to the machine. All this is a little bit before my time. There's still a lot of old threshing machines sitting around in the midwest though.

    A threshing machine and a picture of what the reaper might have once looked like, from the interweb.

     You should fix your car up like that so you would be cool and all. I don’t understand why some women can’t read gas gauges, but you made the right call going on to clean the litter box. Wouldn’t want to make the house cat mad

    That was the worst part about it, I had already ordered some tires and rims just like that for my Chevrolet, and then this clown gets his first and beats me to showing them off in the wal mart store parking lot.🤬


  7. Wow, the fastest car I ever had, the 70 Chevelle SS, only ran a little bit faster than that in a quarter mile. I had two cars that I took to the track, both street cars. I got 99 mph out of the small block 72 Nova, and ran 101 with the Chevelle.

    Hard to decide which story I like most. Maybe Gene Dixon's?

    That was surely the biggest, and something that most of us have wanted to do at one time or another but could only dream of doing. Kyanite Mining Corporation still owned that motel until a few years ago, then they sold it. Gene Dixon was the owner of Kyanite Mining then, then Gene Dixon Jr. took over. They have both passed away and Gene Jr's son Guy Dixon runs the show now, and they are still among the richest families in Va.

    I wouldn't know Guy Dixon if I saw him, but I remember seeing Gene Jr. in Dillwyn in the 80's. He was driving a brown and tan Chevrolet or GMC pickup, with a dog box in back, wearing blue jeans and a work shirt. You would never suspect he was worth millions just by looking at him.

    Tommy, enjoyed meeting you and "the Red Head". Always meet the finest people at truck shows. The pictures were OUTSTANDING! Did you buy the optional water cooled shutter on that Kodak? 

    Had a good ride back to the poor country EXCEPT oil pan cracked riding thru MD. Made heck of mess but no damage done. Had lost bout 1/2 gallon oil when I found it. Found sheet screw in tool box, cut rubber washer out of toilet plunger in truck stop and we were back to riding.

    Keep the pictures coming - really enjoy!!

     

    Well thank you, thank you very much indeed!
