I always loved hearing the stories from my Dad and my uncles. At reunions and get togethers while the other kids were off playing,I was most likely with the older folks listening to history. It's all paid off now. I'm one of the old guys now and it's amazing how many stories I know that other family members and even other locals don't know about things that happened around here back in "the old days".

Most tractors used Kerosene and Distillate until Oliver Hart Parr came out with the model 70 in 35. The "70" designation meant that they ran on 70 octane gasoline. Even then,you could get a KD (kerosene distillate) version right on up through the 66-77 and 88s

I was very clumsy as a kid so I hung around the adults while the other kids played ball. Learned a lot of interesting history. Such as when dad's father bought the Farmall M how he came to make that choice. He did not like using a hand clutch so scratch JD, Case, and MM off of the list. The Ford dealer pushed on him hard for a 9N but a 9N was too small for the manure spreader and corn picker in the mud plus grandpa wanted the 10 extra HP at the PTO. Grandpa already had an Oliver 80 but wanted the electric start plus hydraulics that the M had.

Ya, Uncle Claud had one of the first row crop style tractors around here. He came awful close to buying a Deere from Harry Allen in 37, but Charlie Johnson talked him in to demonstrating an Oliver 70. It was no contest after he drove one. Ironic that in 61, Parr's brought a new Oliver 1800 down here and demonstrated that, but Claud went with a new 3010.
