Don:

Congratulations on acquiring your very first Cub :applause: .. you may find that they are very addictive. Follow the links below they should be of some help as there is a real treasure trove of information available to our members. Also you might want to check out the CubFests and Gatherings Calendar. Unfortunately Cecil's CubFest Northeast is occuring as we speak and most of the NorthEast gatherings are over for the year. However, next year would be a good idea to take in as many fests as you can possibly make. You will enjoy them and make life long friends.

Hey Jeff,
The HitNmiss1923 comes from my first "old engine" a FairBanks Morse 1-1/2 hp Dishpan 1923. Still trying to get it running, she'll pop and smoke but floods out everytime... I'll get that sucker running one of these days..Take care..

Art needs to fess up and give us the date for the Spring Show @ Zagray. It could be April 29th, 30th, & May 1st or it could be May 6th, 7th, & 8th. Nothing on their website yet.

Hey guy glad to have you with us. My wife and I stopped for lunch and a guy saw my Farmall hat. We talked about Farmal, JD, Ford *n nd the hit and miss he got when his dad passed.
