Id like to say Hi to everyone here on the cowboard!! Some of you will know me from the red power chatroom.


I live in central Iowa and am an avid PRE 39 IHC collector and have a softspot for the oddballs 8) . I got started with a 34 F-20 that was given to me in 2001 and had the fever ever since. Once i reached a sizeable collection i started rounding up a few IHC Trucks as well.

once i figure out the picture posting on here i'll share some of what i have with everyone. i think im gonna have to set up a photobucket account as well :lol:

This is a picture of "Agnes". This was the first tractor my grandpa (moms side) started farming with on the farm i now live. Sloroll grew up about a mile from me, and his folks live just up around the corner from me, and i would bet he will remember this ole girl

She was also in our christmas card pic this year. This is my wife Jen, and our 'kids'

Looks like me and you got similar taste in tractors. And girls.

I understand Slo has a regional patent on the tires in the first picture, did you have to pay him a royalty or just turn the old tires in to him when you got new ones?

Where from Maxwell do you live. Our club tractor ride stopped and ate in the park a few years ago. Several years we have had our Christmas party in the basement of the church that is on the east side of main st. I live about 30 miles southwest of you near Granger.Clem Seivert Seiverttrees@aol.com

And here I thought I was the only idiot nuts over the F series and old McDeering standards. One of these days I will find out how to do pictures and you all will be in for it! Keep your pictures coming, but I must admit I was a little dissappointed in the muffler, and your kids do not look like you!..... Animal
