Stay tuned, I just talked with the City TV Producer and he wants to start doing a "City Spot Lights" on City Employees and focus on their after hour hobbies. He talked with me about having videos and interviews taken at my place. Looks like I may be featured after the Holidays. I hope I can upload the video.

The City Producer is still working on the video. I saw some clips and I think it will look good. I needed to take a couple days off from work to tend to some medical issues with my better half. She is doing fine, and it gave me time to prep Old Girl for a showing at the Rattle Snake Roundup tomorrow. I pulled the deck out from under the bench and washed and waxed it. I greased Old Girls fittings and cleaned (detailed) her and installed the deck. I won't take the snow blower as I am riding her 5 miles to the event. Should get some good pictures.

Hope to get some good pictures in-between some Farmalls. From what I have seen so far the big tractors are a staple, and mine is rather unique so it seems to draw more attraction. We will see tomorrow.

If you charge every one who asks what the snow blower is for a quarter you can pay for baby hulks restore.

Had a good day, nice long ride and many questions were asked. I gave my phone # to a couple that said they had some old Cub Cadets in their barn and were going to take them in for scrap, asked if I wanted them. Hopefully they call. The ride there and back is not where you want to break down. Thinking of a return trip tomorrow. Supposed to be a nicer day.

I stuck to the Fire House BBQ. Not a real fan of Snake. I am going back tomorrow, really enjoyed showing Old Girl. Several Bikers were impressed, This will put over 20 miles on her. I noticed some squeals (brake band) or (deck belt) possibly as I got there, but it went away after I stopped. Didn't do it on the way home. I guess another run is needed.

Odometer :bigrofl:
I like that Kenny.

Larry, she's a beaut. No wonder why everyone gravitates toward her at the shows.

Larry, took me all of yesterday to get through this thread, it is amazing and you must have the patience of Job. Glad to see it finished and looking so good. I'm in the camp that thinks you need a 3pt hitch and attachments now, especially a plow. Then you could make it to Daniel's plow day and get some dirt on that thing. I plan to attend and this will be my first plow day, and since the biggest place I have to plow is my garden I'm looking forward to the day. Excellent job on the Roper.
