Had a great day picking today.
My buddy Steve (Speedracer) was kind enough to help me pick these twin Fry 117s off an 1863 Farm.

I agree Rick. I was telling Chuck how cool they looked on that farm as we were removing them. However, the owner was selling them no matter what, to pour a foundation for a barn.

The farm was founded (and in the same family) since Lincoln was president !!

And Matt, I agree with you too. That last picture is a great screensaver / background for your phone.

Nice pumps Chuck and Steve. I agree, that last pic is awesome. Chuck, now I know why you needed shoulder surgery! You move a lot of pumps!

I'm extremely happy and to be the one to get those pumps.
The farm was established in 1863. My favorite part of this hobby are the stories and history behind the treasures we find.
Its unfortunate the owner had to sell them to generate funds to repair the foundation on the barn but he knew they needed to be preserved and they weren't going to do anything with them.

And Brian, my new shoulder is the only part of my body that doesn't hurt today, LOL. Well worth the aches though.
