  • LQ #30 was mailed the first week of April and of course, when you receive your copy varies greatly. They are mailed from Arizona so if you live in the eastern U.S. you will be the last to receive your magazine. If you are a reader in Canada, the mailing time is really hard to determine.

    We still have a few calendars left. If you didn’t get a chance to order yours, send in your order right away. The price has been reduced from $12.00 to $8.00, in the U.S. and $10. to Canada.

    We are making a few changes to the Outtakes. I will move several of the images and stories over to the Facebook Page. If you are not a follower of that site, there will still be a few things here on the website. I didn’t have time to get the changes made for the last issue but should get a few things moved over for LQ #30.

    Some big changes: I have obtained some really interesting and entertaining videos and will place the link on the facebook page. However, the videos will be linked to the website to take advantage of the You Tube connection. I will also post a series of Massey Ferguson radio commercials from the early 1960’s. They cover everything from combines to Ski Whiz snowmobiles. They are very funny and bring back a lot of fond memories.

    This issue features part 2 of the Massey Ferguson 2000 Series tractors. It contains interviews with former Massey Dealers, farmers who still use these tractors today and mechanics that specialize on the complicated 24-speed transmission. There are also interviews and comments with a former Massey Ferguson factory manager and Product Training Specialists. Also included are several charts and graphs dealing with pricing and production numbers.

    Other articles include a feature on the American designed and French built Massey Ferguson 1200 Series tractor, a young Minnesota Ski Whiz collector and a young man from North Carolina who collects Massey tractors and is one of the hosts of the National Massey Expo this summer.

    The last feature article is about Massey Ferguson’s venture into the world of office furniture production. Originally a part of Massey-Harris, the Sunshine Company made everything from bicycles to bomber parts during World War II.

    Send photos and stories about plowing for the next issue. Many readers will be attending local plowing events this spring. Good quality photos and information about your plow and tractor are welcome along with the usual letters and comments about LQ #30.

  • LQ #29 was mailed the first week of January and of course, when you receive you copy varies greatly. They are mailed from Arizona so if you live in the eastern U.S. you will be the last to receive your magazine. If you are a reader in Canada, the mailing time is really hard to determine.

    We still have a few calendars left. If you didn’t get a chance to order yours, send in your order right away.

    We are making a few changes to the Outtakes. I will move several of the images and stories over to the Facebook page . If you are not a follower of that sight, there will still be a few things here on the website.

    The issue covers the greatest expanse in company history that we have ever published. The is an article about Jerry Miller’s 1899 Bain Stock Wagon and at the other end of the spectrum is the Massey Ferguson 2000 Series tractors that were built through the early 1980’s.

    Also included in issue #29 is several excellent extended letters, and article about a M-H 101 Senior Orchard tractor, the Chad Ferguson family restores the family’s Ferguson T0-35, a story about Walter Massey, the rebuilding of a Massey-Harris Model 20 tractor and of course Part I of the Massey Ferguson 2000 Series tractors.

    There is also a history of the Walter Wood Company that is published in outline form. The complete text of the story will be posted here on the homepage of the website. It is in a PDF format so you can read it on line or print your own copy.

    We still have the back issue sale, so if you have been putting off purchasing issue that you don’t have, print the form and place your order.

    One additional note: if you live in the U.S. we would really prefer that you pay for calendars renewals, etc with a check. Banks charges for credit card transaction really get to be expensive. If you live in Canada or overseas, credit card transactions are all that we can accept. We are on a tight budget and every little bit helps.

    Hope that you and your family have a Happy New Year! Gary and Sue.
