So What Did We Get For Christmas This Year???

Recommended Posts

dhoadley

My 3 boys (13 thru 17) all got tee shirts from their grandmother that read:

"Let's eat Grandma

Let's eat, Grandma

Commas save lives"

I got typical Dad stuff and cash + Sears gift card that will go towards specialty B&S engine repair tools. Any suggestions? Merry X-mas, Dave

I had a great Christmas! First, a NOS electric lift kit for the Allis T816, and then a 30 inch tiller for it, and finally, all the pto hardware for the tractor to run it. Nice gifts!

I also received my salvation and adoption into God's family in July of 1976, best gift ever!

Hope you all have gifts as good as mine, especially the last one!

Merry Christmas!

Steve

Merry Christmas guys!

I got everyone (kids,grandkids, wife) Allis Chalmers shirts, bibs, mugs, mouse pads...all things AC. None of it made it on time...rats.

But it was a great day with bonfires, deep fried turkey and really cold beer! Ready for 2014!

CarlH told my wife Linda about author Roger Welsch and his humorous books on tractor restoration and life. She picked up on that and gave me these: "Busted Tractors and Rusty Knuckles" and "Love, Sex, and Tractors". Thanks Carl for giving her the cool hints!

Coyote Pelt hat and mittens for those cold mornings out hunting coyotes.

Also my Mom, she was diagnosed with Duodenal cancer a year ago. She made it thru the Whipple procedure, chemo and radiation and is doing great. So she is my best present ever for Christmas.

I got a new wool/cotton mattress and put up my old rope bed, fun! Two flannel shirts and a recording interface for my Mac. Oh yeah, my buddy delivered two starter-generators that had been stored 30 years, clean! I gave him an American Flyer transformer, a big one. My Daughter made out like a bandit as always.

Hope everyone enjoyed it.

      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!😁
