I was given a couple of old snapshots to scan of my dad and me back in about 1978 using our Broadmoor 707 that I still have. He is pulling a spring tooth drag that he pulled out of a scrap pile as a kid with his father to pull behind the David Bradley walking tractor they had then. About 12 or so years ago I rebuilt the old drag and discovered it is made from a section of a pre-1929 Moline Plow company drag! I still have it too. I tried to fix up the pics, but they were pretty lousy photos. That's a 1976 Volare wagon - what a pile. Slant 6 with a stick - the front bench seat had a notch in it to clear the shifter! I remember when the antenna fell through the rusted out front fender in 1979. The truck was a 1951 Willys with a Chevy 283 in it. Sure wish that was still around. Got sold in the early 80's and wrecked by the guy that bought it from my dad.
