Here are some photo's of some of the goings on at the Pepperell show. I missed the opportunity to get some members photos because the deals were flying, the bargaining was happening and I just plain forgot (not to mention that the Wood crew triple teamed me on bulk purchases:o)) [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711083406.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711083410.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711085952.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711083444.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711090032.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711085938.JPG[/img] The youngster with the dually and his brother kept coming by the table wheelin and dealing more and more. By the end of the day when they came to haul away their purchased loot, I was piling some freebie things up on top of his little tractor just to lighten my load and give them more "cool things" to take home. I wish I had snapped a picture of the dually sporting a cultivator balanced on the plow, a rim on either foot rest held in by his legs, two more tires piled up on the hood, a gas tank and some other things balanced in some other spots...:D At one time the boy came over and offered me some $ for one item or another. I told him $10. He waves a five at me and says in this strange drawl he had: "you know you want it". It was hilarious and made for some good conversation during the day. As always it was great seeing members and setting up next to Al. The lucky loader mount bracket he traded to me in Orange worked again ;)

MDB, I don't think I'll make the Gathering as it's so far and I'm in charge of caretaking my daughter (6.5 months). I was reading through the Gathering thread and couldn't find a darn thing that would even come close to a usable excuse or way around being kept local in August. Who knows though, stranger things have happened...:) The other real barrier is my little brown box trailer being too small. I need to find a bigger and better trailer to safely transport my tractors over any real distance. If anyone has or knows of a dual axle trailer with up to a 7k carrying capacity for sale let me know. I'd especially be interested in one that has electric brakes and requires minimal repair. Thanks.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
