Postby PVF1799 » Tue Apr 16, 2013 9:15 am

This is a short video of the Cub we are currently restoring. The ol'guy driving it is my father - if your at Cecil's this weekend you'll get to meet this nearly 94 year-old great guy! Enjoy.

Ken:

Now I enjoyed that and learned something new. Gonna bookmark that video - never could get my discs set up properly. No one here really uses them, but I am going to. Very nice. Hope to meet you in the fall and I hope your Dad is able to come to Cecil's in October as well :!:

I've seen two or three videos on YouTube starring your dad. I enjoyed them immensely.

Thanks all - he loves the fact our farm is on the internet. He worked so hard during the depression to keep the bank from taking it, especially considering he still lives in the home built in 1799. He was born in the house where their PC sits today :). Wait till you see the restored Cub doing the same thing this year. The farm founders son - went to the Civil War from that house. We even have photos and some glass plate negatives!

Odd you would get my FB page, it's not connected to my YouTube account. I know several people have watched from the forum today. Send me a PM and when I get to NJ, I'll send you the whole link.

We routinely use them like that. Especially when something more agressive than "buzzard wings" aka "tobacco plows" aka "potato hillers" is needed

Great video!

I too have seen your Dad in your videos. He looks right at home atop the cub! The amazing thing is to think about how much our world has changed since 1919, and he was there to see it! My Great Grandmother lived to 98 years, and it was amazing to sit and talk with her. She passed when I was a teenager, but I would listen to her talk about life before the automobile. (she was born in 1889)
I'll be drinking that free bubble up, and eatin that rainbow stew.
