Iím not too much of a tractor pulling fan. I like to see some of the super beasts fired up and burning down the course with a huge sled in tow. However, Iím with you I rather see the old tractors kept stock even the ones in tractor pulls.
I donít know what is happening with Massy Ferguson. In my area they seem to be loosing out to John Deere and New Holland. As far as the older ones like the 35ís, a Massy Ferguson aficionado would tell you they are such great tractors and holding up so well they are still doing the work they were designed for and donít have time to go to them silly tractor pulls.
Where is Bear Creek? Looked it up on my Super-Duper-Computer-Map-Confuser and got three locations one near Hubert, one near Asheboro and one near Robbinsville. Wherever the pulled was held, Iím sure it was a pretty place. Iíve never been to a place in NC that I didnít like. The mountains in NC are my favorite place to visit.
If you are familiar with the area around Robbinsville, can you tell me anything about a Frank Looper who is running a used parts business possibly specializing in John Deere? He is located in or near Easley, SC. According to my afore mentioned Super-Duper-Computer-Map-Confuser, Easley isnít but about 70 miles (as the crow flies) from Robbinsville.
