When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Thanks for that link. I found the father/son pic especially poignant, Dad helped build the first one, son worked on the last. I think I understand the corporate reasoning for closing plants, but living in the Mahoning Valley area I have seen its impact too often. John

Thanks, for sharing the link. It's always sad to see companies and buildings closing down. I'm also a Wheel Horse guy, and the South Bend plant where Wheel Horses were built has been closed down for years, and in fact, I don't think the buildings are there anymore. Sad.
