Does anyone still have the original little black stickers that came on the hood not sure if all tractors came that way but I know some did

Good news. I sent an email off to Tom and he's doing fine. Sold all his stuff and got out of Illinois. Told him he should pop in here once in a while and say hi. Seems he just moved away, not passed away.

One of my two 149s still has the hood stickers on it. Need another set for the other one. I was disappointed they weren't included in the decal set I ordered a few years back.

If I knew how to start a new thread I would so maybe someone who knows can move this and call it something like:
" Things we have told our "Managers" why we needed a new bit of yellow (Darn Yellow Fever), number 9 or 10 or whatever...." but this sort of fits here too

borrowing one from another thread to start it off:
"I told the wife I had to buy it because the 42” deck on the 125 wouldn’t fit through the gate..... "

It just looked so lonely, just abandoned/dumped up there in the field where it died previously.....

They all have different uses, dear, like grand-kids !

Now we have twins! Don't you see....

Great news about Tom still being with us. Doesn't seem all that long ago when he sold off his collection. I remember him being at the RPRU in Penfield in 2002, running Mein Kub down the pulling track stirring up dust! He'd been out to the plowing display field.
JEFF BAKER - Last time we talked you were tracking down the BIG FARMALL emblem from over the front office entrance at FARMALL. You had traced it's movement behind the CHEDDAR CURTAIN. You may or may not remember that it's safely hanging up in a machine shed around Lake Geneva, Wi. last I knew. A picture of it was posted on Facebook years ago. It's probably the RAREST IH collectable in existence, was one of two, and the other one was destroyed in a remodeling project of the back end of the Farmall Plant, it had been hanging on the sand shed by the back gate.

Saddly Dennis i know after it went to Lake Geneva I was never able to locate the exact location I do know that it left Hebron for sure and headed that direction in my notes I have it wrote that it's somewhere off of Route 12 near Pell Lake
