The top picture is courtesy of Ed Hart whom helped found the NTPA...Its Bill Selby from Ridgeway,Missouri pulling his 2150 Oliver at the huge NTPA Western National pull at Bethany,MO in 1970....Bill pulled both the 12,000 and 15,000 classes and was competitive in the early 1970's..I think this picture is reversed if anyone would know how to fix it..I'd been hunting a picture of this Oliver puller for years and finally have one now..

The second picture is a decal on a Oliver 88 puller from SE Kansas....I took this picture in 2016....Bill Selbys Oliver ran out of Shepard Equip Co from Ridgeway,MO...The announcers used to call Bill Selby "Oliver Bill" at the tractor pulls..

Great memories Blaine. Verle Stevens and his 1600, Clayton Stitt with his turbo'd M, Shorty Kirkpatrick and his JD, Rusty Severe. There were some pretty unique fellers up that way. Is that the old "Buzzard Gulch" sled? gm

Heres Verl Stephens 1650 Oliver pulling at Bethany,MO in the 1970's...The Stitts family is hunting pictures of their old M Farmall puller...On another forum they say that the sled is Hagers first sled that he bought from Delmar Kice at Arbela,MO...That sled still exists today in NE Missouri...

Blaine, the Kice sled was first to mind when I saw that PIC but assumed it had to be the boys from New Hampton. MSTPA used to have several slides from old fair pulls. They showed some at annual dinner/rules mtngs back in the day when Pop and Jimmy Kircher were on the board. Elwood Hackler had them I think. MSTPA would probably be a good place for Stitt's to inquire. Clayton Stitt is/was a nice guy. Back in the mid 70s Verl blew a head gasket pulling at the KS Fair in Hutchinson, Pop finished blowing the one on our 88 pulling Verl onto his truck. At one time I had 11 head gaskets hanging on a nail on the wall outside our milk room. Thanks again. Winter is long. gm

Blaine I always enjoy your pictures on here, it was neat to finally meet you at the OK nationals last weekend and talk tractor pulling of the past and present. I still have a few old pictures at my mom's in Michigan that I need to get on here. I believe some of Ezra Dunn with his Precision Guesswork and not sure of the puller but tractor was named Buzz's Truck and Tractor.

Also the Williams brothers had a couple of Alky farmalls that never seemed to run just right. I remember as a kid in the stands at Greenville, MI they were pulling along and it petered out, it sat there for a minute quiet and then bang! sounded like a bomb went off, older gent in the stands next to us nearly had a cardiac situation. Good times back in those days, your pictures and your stories of the way it used to be are always fun to see and hear. Thanks for staying active with the sport and allowing the rest of us to enjoy!
