OCTOBER 2012 STARS OF THE SHOW: CAR SHOWS—THE BACKBONE OF A COMMUNITY
The car show is often overlooked as a key part of a community. Small towns rely on them for funding everything from the local Lions club to volunteer fire departments.
Registration fees are put right back into the community and the overhead is often negligible because these events are the purest form of volunteer work.
OCTOBER 2012 FALLEN STARS – “EUREKA” IT’S A MOTHERLODE OF OLD IRON
The search for old, abandoned and neglected iron covers thousands of square miles and occasionally outside sources.
This is one of those cases.
SEPTEMBER 2012: 1941 INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER – THIS IS HOW THEY USED TO SPEND TAX DOLLARS
This IHC started life with the County of Camrose Alberta Canada as a school bus back in the early 1940s.
Those were the golden years for taxpayers because governments spent every tax dollar like it was their own so money was spent efficiently.
This old corn-binder was no exception.
SEPTEMBER 2012: 1967 CHEVROLET PICKUP – WHAT DO YOU DO WITH GRANDDAD’S OLD TRUCK?
Dave Fawcett is the second registered owner of this 1967 Chevy pickup. He didn't have to go far for a title search because his Grandfather bought the truck to be a workhorse on his farm.
The easy part was finding the truck – the hard part was convincing his Granddad to drive it.
SEPTEMBER 2012:A 1975 INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER PICKUP TRUCK WITH A CUMMINS HEART TRANSPLANT
I went to northern British Columbia Canada for my nephew's wedding and found a very interesting truck story at the same time.
One of my nephew's wedding guests had a great story about his 1975 International Harvester 4x4 pickup truck, so I got his story down in writing before the celebrations got the better of me.
The owner of the Corn-binder is a young guy named Lee Anstiss and he definitely had something to say about how the IHC ended up with a 1991 Dodge Cummins diesel engine.
