    So my wife has started a new gig at the Franklin Miners Museum. (last week) Today is the museum's 100th birthday and they had a few things going on. Hope you like the pictures. ;)

    Oh~ and darn the luck if my wife didn't introduce me to a real nice guy that is working on putting a '49 GMC 1/2 ton back together! His shop is about 5 blocks from my house and he'd like some advice. Another GMC... You know I'm smiling from ear to ear, right? ;)

    Wish the weather had turned up here in the Northeast. It has not yet. I'm looking forward to some days like that hopefully soon.

    Thanks for the pics, Paul.

    Ha!

    And those kids were all around 6 foot tall and had facial hair. :D

    I couldn't imagine how long it took to build that. It even had an electric motor that could work all the various parts.

    Set on an old Poppin John for many an hour. The crows loved me as I would fall asleep and plow up some new corn with the seeds still on the roots. No electric starter convernions for my dad, you yanked the flywheel to fire it off. Is that a blue suburban behind the two cute girls?

    Those are nice, Zig, I can't wait for outside fun again. Lets see 25% of your pictures are of the same red GMC, You didn't run down the street after it did ya?
    Evan, your story is funny and scary at the same time, many a old time farmer fell asleep and fell under a disc and got run over. Now they fall asleep and wake up when they hit the side of the air-conditioned cab.

    That's a hoot, Evan! Good mind movie there!
    Yes indeed on the suburban. It is at every show, but the red GMC is a newcomer.

    I'm not sure how it kept getting in my way... :D

    One of those young girls belongs to me. Hey, I'm trying to light the spark for old cars/trucks. We'll see. ;)

Our first Fergie had to be fired up with parafine , when hot it went over running on low petrol gas :) We used it fore plowing purpose mostly and sometimes in the forrest with half belts on the Wheels; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFpnp5RMeho
