It would be interesting to know how this forum got started and where it's original members came from since over 60 people joined in the first two days. Does anyone in the know care to inform us newer members how it all began?

Jim,
I think a lot of the early members were like me and participated in the old Farmall Cub Internet discussion board, which was part of the Antique Tractor internet Service (ATIS. Net). I do not remember why, but that internet site was discontinued or shut down. Shortly after that FarmallCub.com was formed, and So there was a lot of initial interest from the ATIS membership.
I’m sure others like Dennis will respond with more information and facts, but that is an excellent question for a new thread. There may be something in the board index that provides a history, but I did not see anything.

Jim / Bill,
The Antique Tractor Internet Service (ATIS) is still there:
http://www.atis.net/

The link to FAQ on Farmall Cub still works;
http://www.atis.net/CubFAQ/cub_faq.html

Dennis, Jim Becker, BigDog, Country Elliott, and others would have a really good knowledge of how that forum went out of vogue and how FarmallCub.com came on.

Here is Dennis' story on how he started FarmallCub.com:
