I saw and heard many good things during a brief visit to the American Thresherman Show in Pinckneyville during the weekend. Here is a small sampling of the John Deeres that were a focal point of the show. There were two of the big R's running around. I visited with the owner of the shiny one; he bought it used in 1970, and farmed with it until recently when it needed new tires. He gave it a first class paint job, new rubber, but the engine has never been touched. It still runs like a new one.
