New guy from Idaho

Fri Jan 07, 2011 9:11 pm

Hi All,
While living in western Washington, I collected several old tractors including a 1949 Cub. After retiring from working for the Navy as a civilian, my wife and I moved back to my home state of Idaho, bringing all the old tractors back, too. One at a time. Took several trips (6) to get them all here.
We live on 10 acres close to the Snake river near the town of Blackfoot. Just completing building a new house which takes much of my time doing the finish work. I work 4 days on the house and 2 days on the tractors!
Obviously, I love old tractors and getting them to run again. I haven't completely restored any of them, but they all run and will be restored in the future. In addition to the Cub, I have a 1940 Ford 9N, 1948 Ford 8N, 1953 Oliver 77 row crop, 1954 Farmall 400, and a 1958 Oliver 880.
Already I have had one problem with the Cub solved by the fine folks on this forum. I hope there will be some Cubfests here in the west so I can meet others folks interested in these fine little Farmalls.
