Brendan, Glad to see the parts went to a good home, it was nice having them available to us only a little over an hour away. Now we will just have to travel a little farther. Ivan is one of the most honest and fair guys in the IH business. If anyone can fill those shoes, it is Barnes International. Do you have all the parts moved? Just curious how many truck and trailer loads it took for all that stuff. Also, you did not happen to find a Dewalt 12 volt rechargable flashilight in all that stuff did you? Eric seems to have misplaced his, and the last time he remembers having it was when we went down to Ivans New Years Eve. Thanks Stan

Stan, 9 trailer loads so far and probably one (maybe two) left. About 3000 miles put on my trucks doing this haul. I will say something to Ivan about the flashlight next time I'm there, I haven't found one so far, but all the parts are not yet unpacked. Please come down sometime and visit, that would be a fun day.

That collection look very similar to the stockpile i have here in Washington. Glad to see it will be getting out the the resto and fix up crowd to save these IH rigs and keep them on the road. Get in touch as I am sure we can be mutually beneficial to each other.

So glad to see it went from one honest dealer to another. That doesn't always happen but it's great when it does. Congratulations Brendon.

I went and saw the parts that Barnes International bought from Mr. Farley and all I can say is WOW! The amount of OEM parts as well as excellent used parts is quite impressive. If IH made it, chances are Barnes has got it. Good luck inventoring all that stuff Brendan!
