Looks dang good George! I especially liked how you ghosted the video on the start. Great choice of music in my opinion too. I take it those large tractors with grilles resembling Ford are Pond tractors? They are at points 7min & 9m15s on the video. I know you said they didn't allow other brands, so they must be Ponds...the forerunners of Wheel Horse.

I spotted a few guys wearing other colored hats, I think you would have been safe but anything on wheels that wasn't red was a no no LOL.

As far as I know, yes Daniel. I guess, technically, the Ride-Away are Pond tractors. After their demise, in 1956, the company name was officially changed to Wheel Horse. They did make a Ride- Away Junior too.

Here's a bit of history about them, quoted from my GT book... In 1948, when Ford Model A transmissions were getting scarce, many Pond tractors were equipped with a Ford V-8 transmission. Briggs & Stratton didn't approve it's engines for use with the spring-loaded clutch that went with the transmission, so the tractors were equipped with 8.33 horsepower Wisconsins.
