I'm going to go with my 1973 desert sunset 1070 Case tractor. I went to a farm sale to buy a Case field cultivator back in March of 1991. This 1070 Case was also on the sale. I didn't buy the field cultivator but I was the lucky bidder on the 1070 Case. I got it for $5,750.00. It had around 3,700 hrs with no cab and was in the heart of green country(maybe why so reasonable?) The trip back home was about 30 miles and I was by myself (No cell phones at that time). So I decided to drive it home. When the sun started to set it really started to get cold. I remember being within 10 miles of home and haveing to stop and warm my hands by the muffler. Smiling with pride the whole trip. I work for the county too, so a lot of my farming is done on weekends and evenings after I get off work. After 2 yrs of using the 1070 with no cab. I went to Elmer's repair and picked out a cab. Thought I had died and went to heaven with AC,heat and a radio. I remember my cousin calling me to help him custom plow 200+ acres of alfalfa ground back in the spring of 1994. He had his 2290 and Case 5x16 plow with harrow and his 1070 Case with JD 4x16 plow with no harrow. I had my 1070 Case with oliver 565 4x16 plow with buster bar harrow. As I was driving over to the field,I was thinking about keeping up and not getting lapped. But to my surprise my 1070 Case and oliver plow lapped his 1070 Case with JD plow. I'm a firm believer that Case and Oliver plows pull easier. I always had to plow the X (turning strip) out of the field because my 1070 Case seemed to hook to the plow better. That's one weekend my 1070 Case proved that it could run with the Big Dogs. It always hooks up well to my 18 ft. Case disc. I use the 1070 Case tractor to do a lot of the haying work. Usually hooked to the New Holland 116 windrower, sometimes on our double rake and to the 8480 Case IH round baler. ALL and ALL a very handy chore tractor also. I also use it on the feed wagon, grinder and the bale processor. We have always owned Case tractors starting with the SC ,DC, 800 diesel,730 gas, 730 dsl,1030 dsl, 970 dsl, 1270 Case, 1370 Case, 2090 Case and 2590 Case. They have all been awesome tractors. I'm hoping this winter to be able to post pictures. Sorry for the long post but I have a lot of good memories with Case tractors and Case equipment. Darrell
