    A trip to the bank on Friday is usually a good thing!

    That's pretty much true of pickups as well. If you want a basic work truck: no carpet, no power anything, vinyl seats; it's gonna be white.

    I hear ya! I paid 500 bucks extra to get something other than the non-colors of black, white, silver, gray, and tan when I bought my Focus. Several people have said: "That car sure is blue!" I like it that way.

    Water fell from the sky today! Is that supposed to happen? It seems like I remember something similar a long time ago.

    That looks great!

    Wow, Ron! How did you do that '65 Polara? Was it a kit, conversion, or aftermarket? That is one of my Grails.

    Beautifully done!

    I do the same as Steve and Ray, except I use an "artist's blending stump". However, no matter how careful I am, I still mar the paint a bit around the emblem. So I clean the emblem with thinner, spray one more coat of color, then do the final cleaning with the stump and polish.

    Awesome video. I also watched the one of them harvesting corn. It's hard to get a sense of scale of the combines unless you know how big that tractor is, and I know it's big. And a wagon on tracks! Probably self propelled too. Then, how big is that field? Around here, 30 acres is pretty big for one field. Those fields are 200 acres? More? Amazing stuff!

    Yeah Scott, I was satisfied. Then again, I had a friend who was making almost $5/hr. stocking shelves in a grocery store. He had a convertible, all I could afford was a Yamaha 250. I liked what I was doing tho.

    What we have here is a failure to communicate.
    What's your dirt doing in my hole?
    Did he fire six shots or only five?
    Make my day.

    Holy Cow! The machinery used in the Midwest has always been bigger than what gets used here in the East, but that is huge. The header alone would be as big as a decent sized semi trailer.
    Great story about your Dad. Thanks for posting this.

    How much for the little girl?

    I like that! Makes me feel better too. We have some experiences in common. I also started driving when my feet could reach the pedals, and was operating machinery in my early teens. I still live on the family farm, but now we lease it out to custom farmers. The machinery they use now is amazing. A field of wheat that used to take us a couple of days, they do in a few hours.
    Scott, I was running that 45 combine from about 1967 on. I started shocking orchard grass and loading hay at about age 11. I made $1.00 an hour. Woo Hoo!
