Went for look around this morning. The sister in laws v39 is going to be on display at the Princess site. It is for sale as she has her eye on the v55 as shown below. She has owned v52 and 62 before so jumping back up to 55 should not worry her.


I married the wrong sister

Went to the local ag show today. They always have stand with old stationary engines. But what caught my eye this time was the fergi with a V8 and these small howard tractors. Have never seen them before?

And the old harvester in the background. Probably a member here has used one?

I've seen that V8 Fergi before. My dad has both a petrol & diesel ones, fully restored, as well as a few old stationary engines. We have a big antique machinery show, The Rusty Iron Rally, here in Macksville every year on the fathers day weekend. Not held last year due to Covid, but in 2019 we set the world record for the most vintage engines running together, with 666.

The fine folk at the Gilgandra Rural Museum can give you quite a spiel about Arthur Howard, a local inventor who started making tractors when Australia couldn't get enough Fordsons to make use of his first invention, the rotary cultivator.

Have been contacted by one of my year 12 graduates from 2000, is doing her PhD and was asking for some advice. 😁

Is that a Rover V8 in the Fergi?

I will look for the bright light, on the horizon. :) Lets hope it knocks it over for good, this time! 🤞

If you want to feel even more superior; I doubt any of the folks that taught me would have that experience.

If any of their alumni got a PhD, it would be in spite of that lot.

As for what made my day: I got a chance to drive @razor2000's 300 horse FTE.

Wow a GU can be nice to drive.
