I see a lot of familiar faces in those photos. Ivan Toth , Bill Huff, Paul Johnson, Kevin Roth and wife, Dad Dennis and sons Benjamin and Joseph, me and my son in the one, Charlie Simpson, Gene Pock, Kelly and Jessie Tyslandvick, Ed Dina Bud Calloway, Bill Winteringham? and of course John T.

So there was a gap in there where there was no show? I was wondering, since 2019-1961=58...

John mentioned that the first show in 61 had a different name and stopped in 65 the present show organization ( Divide County Historical Society) was started later in 1969.

FWURTH mentions Ivan Toth in post 41. I had communicated with Rumely Bill Krumwiede for years and bought the NOS early E master gear from him. He gave me Ivan Toth's name who I contacted for years about their old family E of which his brother's widow had control. Ivan could be contacted in Ontario in winter, but not in summer when he was playing with tractors. When I heard that he'd died, I called another Toth in Canada and got Barbara Toth's phone. She would not set a price on the E or even on the extra wheels and master gears. She sent some nice pictures of that old E. My friend went to see that E, but she only wanted to get offers with no intention of selling to him. Her daughter is an engineer and interested in antiques but thought restoring the old E was too much and so she sold it to someone nearby.

Ed, was there a senior Ivan Toth and a Jr.? I normally hear from him every Christmas, but didn't this year, he's about my age. Kevin, you hear anything?

I think the Toth with the Model E were different folks.
There is Ivan who worked at the power generating plant near Estevan and who lived up near Saltcoats. He used to get to Crosby every year and used to run the 20-40 Eagle tractor that was there 25 or more years back. He retired from the plant and may have had some health problems. I think he is still going strong although I have not heard from him in some time.

Frank; I bought the gear in 1999 and it came in 2000 with a B radiator for Ron Miller. I don't recollect the family member who said he'd died. It was probably in 2004. The guys at Crosby should know about another Ivan Toth.

The one that helps out at Crosby is the one I know, a long time friend. I know his health hasn't been the best so I was worried.

It is good to see the interest build. Another group that add a lot to the shows are the ones that bring their horses and help with the Threshing and also give rides in one of their many wagons and buggies like Kenny Sorum, the Old Horse Wrangler.

The Rumely mentioned in post #44 is a 30-60 # 425. Was owned by Mike Toth who lived near Otthon, Sask It was well used but complete and pretty well original except he had put 10 spoke rear wheels on as broke a bull gear of one of the originals, he still had the 8 spoke rear wheels with one good gear. He told how threshing late in the fall he had a sheep skin coat on but when the day warmed up he hung it on a homemade belt guide and it got caught in the belt went through the gear on belt pulley and broke the leg but he had patched it up. Mike was a nice man but can't say the same for his son. He also had a 12-20 Rumely that later was sold to Barry who sold it to me and I sold it to Haucks from Ohio, Ivan Toth that comes to our show and run tractors is a first class fellow may be related but is not Mikes son. I had a good visit with him at Kelly's model show last fall. #425 was sold to a man & wife from Canora, Sask and heard they fixed it up. John Tysse Jr.

Norm Johnston is right on as that tractor is a two cyl Avance tractor built around 1928 in Sweden by the Bolinder Munktel {not sure of spelling}. It is a semi diesel. I found this tractor south of Mandan ND with the help of Nancy Hendrickson in 1960. I turned it over to Bill Krumwiede and he bought it and brought it to Crosby where Lloyd Gunderson got it running. It was quite a challenge but Lloyd was a good mecanic and figured it out, was air start with no belt pulley but had a power take off so that's how he started it the first time. Years later Bill sold it and am not sure but think to Donald Sell. Don't know where it is at now. Hal Higgins got Lloyd some information on this tractor when he was working on it. John Tysse Jr
The Avance is currently in Robert Lefever's collection. I may be wrong, but as far as I know it is the only one in North America.

I talked to Ivan Toth on the phone a month or so ago. He did work at the power plant here in Estevan...Same plant I am now at. He has retired and lives near Saltcoats Sask.

Thanks for the update, I got a bit worried when it was mentioned in post 44. I've known Ivan for many years and consider him a good friend. I have been to his place in Saltcoats once, pretty far north.

On post 40, the first picture is Bert with the Reeves. Second is group photo of engine guys at the Makoti show. Third is group photo at Crosby about 2000. Fourth is group at Rollag in 1998 Bill Hoff, Paul Johnson, me and Bert. Bill Hoff was another that spent a lot of time helping at Crosby. He was Avery Bill, Hoff and puff as Clarence Young called him or bondo Bill.

In Crosby there may be some other lodging that can be used as are some apartments and maybe some campers that could be rented out for the weekend. We will get a contact number [posted for information on this. Williston is 70 miles away, Plentywood MT. 60 miles and Estevan Sask. 30 miles all have quite a bit of lodging. Keep this in mind if looking for rooms. John Tysse Jr.
