    Greetings all,

    At a meeting last summer the IH Expo people made it know that they wanted an IH M on the 2012 plate. So the quest for the perfect tractor began.

    The first candidate was at CNDSTR in New Rockford. Several IH enthusiasts gave this one a thumbs up.


    But the entire IH camp wasn't happy. The purists said this one would not do because the rod that runs the hydraulics was missing. So the quest continued.

    We found an M with the rod and managed to get this picture.


    Alas, again some weren't happy. We forgot to straighten the drawbar and this picture would not do either.

    Finally we managed to get this picture.


    Hopefully this will please the IH folks.

    Now we need to determine the wording on the plate.

    Many thanks to Bob Mitchell for bring part of his collection outside today.

    The tractor in picture #3 looks a lot like the tractor in picture #2. That looks like it could be Bob in picture #2. Trying to pull a fast one Jerry?:rof:

    Glad you were able to find a nice "M" Jerry. I think I was supposed to help with that wood cutting weekend, but it would have been a lot of work to get to the one I was thinking of, and it was COLD that day!
