Default Northwest Power Association

I got some pictures from Whitefish High School student Kayla Crooks. Her Power and Energy teacher, Chris Ruffatto, gave extra credit to students attending the 13th annual Northwest Antique Power Association show near Kalispell, Whitefish and Columbia Falls, Montana. She had to report back after the show at school. Kind of unique for modern education, I think!

The first tractor is Dan Tombrink's IHC ID-6 and it is too bad it doesn't show more of Dan's Co-op #1, at right.

the second photo is of some of the tractors shown at NWAPA 2006.

Monte,
There were a hellofa bunch of those green farmalls there. We have a father & son who have a couple dozen, I think. Then there is another fellow who owns three of those green farmalls, which were setting beside his Super WD-9. His cousin, last name Toavs, up in northeastern Montana has over a thousand, I think. Maybe closer to 2000? I think he has every model of green farmall ever put out of Waterloo? I am not aware of any other photos of the ID-6, but someone surely got one somewhere, so if I'm patient, I may score another. Did I ever tell you that I went through the Waterloo plant when they were still building those ones with the bad miss? That would have been 1958!
Gary
P.S. Now aren't you sorry you asked????

Monte,
For some of the abuse you take from me, I'm posting these photos for you. The upper photo has better than factory quality in the several John Deeres displayed by Gerald and Mike Lakes of Coram, Montana.



This old D John Deere is probably my favorite tractor at our show. Why?? Because Steve Skyberg brings it to use. He plows and tows many things around the showgrounds as needed. Last year when we had a disasterous rain out, he was pulling motor homes out of the field with this tractor and they darn well appreciated him doing it. The "trailer queens" left very early in the rain session.

Ya know, Gary, that D pictured last would be my favorite too. Were I to own one and bring it to a show, I think I'd be apt to leave it "field fresh" or "barn fresh", providing it wasn't terribly banged up or rusted out. That way, a little mud, dirt, or whatever wouldn't look so out of place. I kinda chuckle at the "trailer queens" myself. I do enjoy looking at them, but they'd look pretty out of place with muddy wheels.
Thank-you for your "payback" for all that terrible abuse you constantly, and unmercifully dish out to me.

Monte,
I'm glad you liked the picture of Steve's D. I like the other tractors too, but his one is usable and likable and it is no slouch on the hitch either. It may be a little spendy to run with our gas prices still up around $2.60 (Why with five refineries and our own oilfields are our prices higher than anywhere else at this time? ). Now for the bad time I give you... Please don't take it personally. Montana and North Dakota have been at it for some time now! It's a "war" that will never be won.

Monte,
I knew if I was patient, another photo would come along showing Dan Tombrink's ID-6. It also shows his #1 Co-op he recently restored too. Dick's and Dan's dad, Joe Tombrink, had one just like this one. Dan located parts all over the USA to put this one together. Dick took these photos.

Aww Gary, I never took it personally. Good-natured ribbing is the spice of life. Just like the Reeves folks always pokin' fun at those Case-lovin' people!

Monte,
Speaking of good-natured fun... You know I ONLY own a Case steam engine , don't you? It is my son that owns, and my dad who owned the Reeves engines.

Monte,
The next time you get a chance, check my thread over in the Farm Antiques and Collectibles area. You will notice behind my third photo, the rear of my 1925 Model TT, there is a blur of green and yellow paint in the distance. You may enjoy that? They are all trailer queens, though, I think.

A couple more pictures from the 2006 NWAPA show near Kalispell, Montana. The first photo is of one of the lines of tractors there. The second is of an IH AV with cultivator. The third is of another IH AV, but this photo is especially for MoRo! Monte notice the flood of green paint in the background. The fourth is of the cultivator on the second photo's AV. They are courtesy of my good friend, Dick Tombrink.
