Very Very nice. Tell the new owners to sign up and become members of the Cub Forum. Now they are "family". Can't wait to see what is next for you. Hope it is another IH project so you'll include all of us throughout your restoration process.

WOOT congrats all around! it was a grand adventure watching all of the steps and your meticulous efforts to ensure Rocky was as good as it could be. It was a great educational journey as well :) so...whats next? next years coming, and we need a new thread to watch :)

What can I say, words are really inadequate to describe the gracious hospitality showered on Jo and I. We are still overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity extended by Tim and his lovely wife, Tamera. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank You!

Rocky, too, exceeded my wildest expectations, truly an outstanding restoration.

Those Texans know how to do things. They raised over $110,000 (not a typo) in, I thought 10 minutes, Jo said it was 20. It started by the MC asking "Who can give $10,000 tonight? Raise your hands." Three hands went up and it went on from there. Quite an event, is an understatement.

Thanks again, Tim and Tamera.

Once again, thank ALL of you for your participation, patience and support. I think these two videos, one professional and the other ameteur, will be a fitting way to end this thread.

Just one of many miracles happening at ROCK.
