Yeah we've lost a lot but we still have lots left too.

You act as if every last old truck, tractor and piece of equipment has been gleaned from this land, cut up, and shipped off to China. That's not even close to the truth.

How much of this is equipment that was realistically beyond repair?

I also see a lot of people complaining, then putting their hands in their pockets making excuses like no room, no money, no time, etc.. Frankly if you're not willing to step up and do something, you really have nothing to complain about.

Lots of stuff goes to scrap because the owner has tried and tried and tried to sell it to someone who would make use of it, but nobody will buy it at any price.

If you expect others to respect your personal property rights, don't try to infringe on theirs. People should be able to do whatever they want with their own personal property, even if you don't agree with it.

No, No, No, you missed the tone of my post.

I was just wondering. I am not disrepsecting anyones property rights. I didn't stick my hands in my pockets. I am not complaining.

I was just wondering.

I hauled off 5 trucks loads of junk off of my property when scrap was high. Wanted to clean the place up some.

I even tied to give away any parts anyone wanted off of some old 2ME, mounted corn pickers.

No, dangit, I wasn't complaining. Just wondering and trying to post something tractor related.

If I am gonna get slammed for it, I'll just just shut up and let people go back to talking about the Grammy awards or movies.

There was not one thing in your post that was negative or intrusive or suggest that you wish to impose your thought on anyone. There are a few negative members on here that can construe a simple observation into a negative rant like you see here. I found your post to be thought provoking and inspired me to get working on my SuperC project...until I read the bomb from out of the blue.

Gene, Keep your thoughts and ideas coming. I think you sound like a decent fellow. You never know, maybe guys with negative thoughts might be having a bad day...or a week...or a month...or??

It's easy for someone to read your post, and completely turn it around, and mean something is wasen't intended to be. This happened to me a while back. Don't let it bother you. I think some things were lost during the war years, but I believe most people didn't have a lot to toss out, and kept most usefull things. Probably a lot of Model Tee's were turned into tanks, and jeeps. Stan
