Had a chance to attend a show/plow day near Tarboro, NC yesterday. This is the second year for this event, held on the Eddie Dail farm.
I figured folks would like this spreader.....
Nice yellow and white with a fast hitch plow
Nice Cub with a HV in the background
Peanut thresher. The host had a bunch of peanuts stacked the “old timey” way. They were threshing the stacks at the show. Didn’t get a pic but they were also demonstrating a hay press baling the peanut tops. The hay was pretty and green.
Nice Super AV. Heart skipped a beat when I saw the big steering wheel, thinking it might be a Super AV-1, but someone added that later.
Me and “Old Ugly,” the Super A I bought from Billy Clay, turning two furrows…..
Probably the “star” of the event. I think it’s an ’80 model IH 3588 2+2. This tractor is owned by Mr. Bill Jennings, plowman extraordinaire! He was pulling 8 bottoms plowing deep enough you could turn a Cub over if you dropped a wheel in the furrow. Notice the seagulls in the background. They were THICK in the field, eating goodies the plows were turning up.
There were lots of other colors but seemed like the IH's were the only ones getting dirty....
Thanks for the pictures, Al. I went to college down there in Greenville and always like to revisit the old haunts when I can. Take care.

Hey Al...GREAT pics ...THANKS VERY MUCH for posting these. Looks like you an "Old Ugly" had FUN & nice straight furrows too ...'Country'

It was a Centaur. I didn't catch the model.
The Super A and plow did well. I think the plow needs new shares, seemed like I could never get the rear bottom to go in the ground like the front would. I did work the tractor pretty good and blew out the cobwebs.....
i enjoyed that show plowday i fell in love whit the ole john deere LA whit the sickle mower that was there. bills 79 3588 is a nice tractor he should use a 3 bottom at all the other club plowdays so we can have some field left to plow up HAHA your ole super A look good dose it still have the IH muffler on it i did not look over good to see if there was IH part number or not sounded good tho nice an smooth the feller who owned the oilver 88 whit the three plows shoud of been plowing would of love to hear the 6 cylinder humming an i wonted the spreader it would look alot better behind a cub or super A whit a blade on the front heading to the cow barn to clean out.....the super AV looked good but i did not like the three point on it nice tractor tho .
Tractors are like watermelons..Eat the red and throw away the green!!

Nice pictures. What a difference 700 miles makes. Gonna be a bit before we plow (soil) up here.
REMEMBER: Keep it correct or you may face the
YEs it still has the IH muffler. The outlet pipe is about rusted off but the rest of the muffler is still pretty good. It has turned out to be a good tractor so far.
Bobperry where most of the plowing was done, it would normally be iffy to plow this time of year. Usually the ground would be too wet but we didn't get much rain during December/early January.
Thanks for posting pictures. That event has to be one of the earliest plow day shows in the country. As long as the weather cooperated, wearing insulated coveralls would be great attire for viewing a tractor show! Sometimes the heat of summer can be too much.
