I must say. I'm not liking this photo feature used by this site because it does not display my photos in the same sequence I loaded them. That's bloody annoying to say the least because it puts sequential pictures all over the place making it difficult for the viewer to relate a rear shot of a tractor to the side shot he just looked at.

I was told that you could buy a Cadillac for what the guy has into that tractor in the first photo. Those wedge-style pulling tires are over five hundred a pair and that's just the tires. The guy who owns the Case also has a Deere puller and a Cub puller that is painted to look like a Deere. His daughter pilots all three. He told me that the four aluminum rims cost him close to a grand by the time they got to his door.

The Ford with no hood and twin engines has two OHV Tec engines powering it. Several of the tractors are running on alcohol.

Once you load up the photos and they are displayed in the little box on the bottom. X them out and drag them from the larger box above in the order you want them to be in :thumbs:

Dan, I haven't got a clue. I went to that event for two reasons. I wanted to see what kind of turnout they managed to get both in full-size ag tractors as well as garden tractors. My second reason was to investigate the pulling game in my area of the province to find out what it's all about. I was pleased to see one Case with hydraulic drive there because I had been told that they were essentially useless. Not true. For a tractor that had very little money invested, it pulled quite well.

Other than that, I don't know a single participant there however I was told that "Grumpy" also competed in events on your side of the border. I did not stick around long enough to see that tractor make a pass.

Thanks for the tip. I guess I'm going to have to explore that software more and see if I can make it do what I want.
