Here is my 1926 Reo Truck with a old threshing machine and farm wagon. I wish I had a quarter for every tourist who took a picture of them. All I need is a tractor and pulley belt to hook up to the threshing machine.

    Thanks Pop_abides for the prompt.........

    Ransom E. Olds (friends called him 'Ranny') was the first titan of the American auto industry. His father was a blacksmith and machinist who built and repaired steam engines, and young Ransom worked in his father's shop and began tinkering with gasoline engines by his teens. He dropped out of high school, but briefly attended Lansing Business College. He began selling his one-cylinder four-cycle Runabout or "Curved Dash" Olds in 1896, and in 1899 he found financial backing to form the Olds Motor Works, which bought out his father's business and sold more than 5,000 cars over the next five years, making Olds by far the best-selling car in America. His factory was the first to use an assembly line manufacturing process, and Olds himself patented the process, though Henry Ford's famous factory line, begun in 1907, was far more efficient.

    In 1904, amidst increasing conflicts with the son of his company's financial backer, Olds sold almost all his stock in the Olds Motor Works and established a new business named for his initials, the REO Motor Car Company. He remained at the helm of REO until his retirement in 1936, and the firm was perhaps best known for its popular lawn mowers and REO Speedwagon trucks (for which the band REO Speedwagon was named). REO ceased producing cars during the Great Depression, was re-named Nuclear Consultants, Inc in 1950, and is now known as Nucor Corporation, a major manufacturer of hot- and cold-rolled steel, steel joists, and metal buildings. Olds' first company, Olds Motor Works, was purchased by General Motors and became the Oldsmobile division, which was discontinued by GM in 2004.

    ....and now, a NUCOR corporation is located on the Mississippi River in Blytheville, Arkansas. Amazing. They employ a lot of people.

    My family has a McCormick thresher and a Case steam engine that we still use every so many years to thresh at family reunions. I always love to see those!
