I strayed to another tractor site temporarily of course and came across the photos of collectors Anne and Daryl Shaffer of MO. It was a humbling experience to try to put in perspective, an analogy if you will, its like you play guitar and so does Jimmy Hendrix holy cow these people have an incredible collection of the rarest tractors I've ever seen some I never heard of I don't think I'm ever going to be well after seeing that. I aint never doing that again if anyone else wants to take a peek Yesterdays tractors .com but I don't advise it.

Thank you for the information, Hank!

 

I think most of us are members in other forums  - I have a membership in Yesterday Tractors, too. It was one of the my first memberships in american forums, but I fear, I don't know the password any longer.  :smilewink:

Yep, me too! I did more with big Molines and others back then. They don't have a big GT forum or didn't too much before, maybe it is changed more now, haven't been back in awhile.

This IS one of easiest sites to navigate....(so far,heh!).  Red Square for W-horse used to be same, now kinda diff, not sure I like it as well.  Yesterday's tractors has always been a LOT of info, but harder to find with the older program they use. I like posting pix here, because the program does all the re-sizing and such that others won't do and they just reject because of size and I don't know how to do that.  I'm on a few Yahoo groups, but they are REAL hard to navigate now and pictures only in seperate posts, not the emails for postings from members. They try to Improve, but not too good really. I'm mostly on the Power King one, It has regulars. Most others have dropped off and not regulated anymore and full of spam. I'm also on a private run MM site, with mostly the same guys on it most times. Not sure what this program is that is used here, but many going to it and is easier to use than any others I have seen in past. Each brand has their own sites if you get addresses, but I don't do the JD or IH sites as example.
