Not what you kids think. I work for Coca- Cola. The big red monster. In my plant my job is Inventory analyst/Production Forecasting. In less fancy terms, I keep track of the soda and tell them how much to make. Best company to work for! Just kidding. Slowly going down the tubes like nost other corporations. But, nonetheless, now you know who I am a slave to. My other job, I keep just to make sure I work seven days a week, is moonlighting as a Petroleum Service Technician, ie gas jockey. I actually enjoy this job. The people are cool, the money sucks, but it helps support the three of us(future fianceand her daughter) and the horses. And now im out of breath. ... Sent from my 416-8

Second wind!!! Now.... the horses. I have always wanted one. Or two. But preferably 20. I got my 1100 special as an anniversary present. Semi basket case status. That is my spring project. Then I got the 416-8. For free. Needed a coil, but they didnt know that. So it sat. And sat. And sat. Until I rescued it two years after it was parked. It is now my favorite pain in the a**. Then I just got a commando 8. No motor. Everything is immaculate on it, even the cigarette lighter. Also a spring project. Sent from my 416-8

Thanks for joining us. The rule is "without pictures it ain't yours". When you get a chance add some pics to your post. It is suprising how good a job the phone cameras can do. BTW tractors are like potato chips, you can never have too many.

Coke??  sorry guys, but short of water, there is no other beverage, not on our acres, anyway.And the Chevy part, well , short of the old 4 ton grain truck, Chevys are the wheels of choice. Welcome aboard, Chevyaddict83.  Now, about the horses, they're pretty much like GT's and peanuts, two are never enough. lol

Coke is all over FT.Wayne, IN where I'm at.  Being Cheesehead tho, we like Pepsi and Mountain Dew. The GM plant started with Coke only and workers complained and they got both brands in later. I like Mello Yello alot when no Dew around.

 

Now that that is out of way......what is a 1100 special??  Not familiar with that model.  Looks about same as a C series? I gotta get one of those 414's or 520's some day, but think I want a hydro version. They are nice lookers. Get the disease like most here and you will have many more!

As a kid, I drank coke all the time. As a young man in the work force, I drank a dozen cans a day to keep up a manic pace. While i still drink your water and an occasional coke, Sugar runs in the family and I decided to more or less knock off colas, etc. now if you guys start making coffee :dancingbanana:

BTW, if you happen to know the whiz kid that came up with "New" Coke, get his phone number, I would love to tell him what a good idea that was... :rolling:

Thanks for the pics and the intro, :welcome: aboard.
