Missouri Plow Day
Posted May 03, 2011 - 07:10 PM
Regarding the club membership to participate, it's a good idea that our club does for all our events except plowday so far. It's only a matter of time before our Insurance forces us to do it tho.
Our club has the membership form & address to mail it on our website. We also have a place to join at each event.

It sure was great meeting some of you guys today. Thanks to all the made it in spite of some morning rain. Turned out to be a beautiful day and had a great time at the show. Later in the day I was told that there may be an additional plow day added to the schedule this year due to the interest from the garden tractor guys. Right now it is about 50/50, but one of the club members thinks he can secure another large quality field that they have used before, this one would be in Rosebud MO. So heres hoping that one works out to!
While sitting near my tractor a guy proceeds to tell me he has a John Deere garden tractor in his barn he would like to get rid of. While talking with him I find out it "has round fenders". I asked a few questions about it that he couldn't answer so I gave him my cell number and asked him to call me when he got home so I could narrow down just what tractor he had. About 30 min later he calls. I asked him, does the tractor have 3 lug nuts on the rear hubs or 5? He said 3. I asked, does the tractor have a 3 speed transmission or 4? He said 3. I said, I WILL BE UP TO SEE THE TRACTOR! Once I got there he took me out to his barn and there sits this complete EARLY 64 110, serial #4775. Everything is original down to the hubs and the welded tube axle. Even the engine looks to have never been apart. He then tells me that he has a couple plows in another barn that he would like to get rid of. So I said lets take a look at them as well. After digging and crawling over a bunch of stuff there in the back are two Brinly plows, one a 12" sleeve hitch model! I definitely wanted that one. His son told him to keep one of them so I grabbed the 12" and battled my way back out. The other one was probably a 10". Once out the haggling began, we haggled back and forth for 15 minutes or so and finally settled on a price. I won't say what but it was very low. Once loaded, I went back to the show where another guy came over and looked at 64 still on the trailer and wants to buy it. We start haggling and he offers me double what I paid for the tractor and plow, just for the tractor! I have his name and number that he left with me and may just sell it
Oh and that guy I bought the tractor from. He asks me if I know what a Super bird is. I said yes I do. He said, Do you want to see one? I'm like YES! So we go over to his garage and there sits an all original Plymouth Super bird with 40,000 original miles! The car is covered in autographs of Richard Petty and many other NASCAR legends. He's got pictures with all these guys and everything. I sat and haggled with this guy over a tractor and plow for 15 minutes and this guy has a car that he has turned down a $165,000 for! WOW! What a day! Adam
