I really enjoy every time I talk to John. I can only imagine discovering some of the neat tractors in the wild that he has over the years. We can only dream about finding rare big prairie tractors in the wild here in Ohio. I have read the article about John's team pulling the big Four out of the river and then restoring it too many times to mention. All of John's tractors are awesome, but my favorite is the 30-60 Fairbanks. Six of our Oilpulls were first discovered by John.

Well John had a birthday last week. AS you can see by the smile of his face he is pretty happy with his present! We were down last Saturday to see what was up. He has been working on his Model F Ford of 1905 vintage. Here are some photos. We had it running and plugged up some oil leaks and overcome some plumbing problems. The body should be back in Crosby this week. It will be another sharp looking car in the line up next summer at the show!

Im having trouble loading a video but when I get it figured out I will post a link.

Also in the shop is the Sampson truck. The Waterloo Boy should also be ready to run in the spring.

Great post Kelly. That video is excellent!
Talked with the ol' boy a couple of weeks back. He did seem in a very good mood - never realized he was hip-deep in birthday presents! Must be nice!

HI Guys

I was down to Crosby yesterday. Progress is being made on the Samson truck. The body is on the F Ford. Also lots of progress has been made on two John Deere D's one for Robby that I have posted before and another that Kent Melby has been working on "Big Johnny". Unfortunately my camera killed the pictures when I downloaded them! #+*%@# So I only have two photos that I took with my phone. One of the F Ford and one of the Samson at the end of the day.

Here is another photo from Johns the other day taken by Robbie Melby. Kent Melby (sitting) and Dale Howard (John's brother in law) are putting the head back on "Big Johnny". In the background you can see the sampson truck and part of one of the Tilsoils.
