What a great question!

I received a Russian Mosin 9130 rifle as a wedding present from my parents back in college. I’ve collected quite a few WWII/Cold War surplus guns since then but the Mosin is my cherished piece. When I joined this Forum after my Dad passed away, the Mosin was the first thing that came to mind to remember him.

Parents named me Raymond. There where a number of Raymond's in the neighborhood that all went by Ray. So my family always used Raymond. But the world being what it is and people short cutting,I became Ray. Just not worth the trouble Wink to be Raymond all the time.


I started this internet journey on a site that had Ray and my most used tractor model taken so I tried a different number and here I am.  Proves I have very little imagination to come up with a clever name. Did not want to confuse Confused(very easy to do LOL ) myself or get mixed up where I was and have used the same name on all the places on the net.

Along with my passion for Allis Chalmers, having grown up on a dairy farm with AC equipment, I enjoyed many years of rec softball after work and weekends. Supportive family over the years really helped make the time commitment posible.

I grew up learning to ride/drive/operate AC D17 series I & farmall M & H. Then my Dad moved up in hp & acquired JD4020s & JD7520 4wd.
He did host a One-Ninety XT series III plow demonstration in 1971 or 72?? It pulled one of our JD F145s. I could not get enough of it’s sweet sounding turbocharged 301. It had my vote, but Dad bought the JD 4wd instead. That was the roughest riding, loudest cab tractor!!
A few years later, I was helping another farm field cultivate their corn ground with their AC 7050. Best demo ever! Fell in love with it’s floor button hi/Lo, it’s intercooled/turbo 426s snappy engine and its lugging ability especially on turns, smooth hydraulics, & it’s very quiet & easy to see out of cab.
Later when I began to get my own IL acreage, acquiring my own AC 7060 was no contest.

I grew up on a farm that used other brands. Years ago I brought a D-19 tractor,AC plow and field cultivator that had sat in a barn for about 8 years. After great luck with that outfit the rest is history. Now all we use are AC and Agco equipment. My hobby is collecting and learning about AC. ACSteve just seemed fitting. Nothing really special about it.

I love to (Hunt), but forced to work on good old American made tractors(Allis) that I love b/c my dad was always working with the 1950 AC model b that I grew up on(normally riding the single plow that we used to fix up our garden on our small farm every year to add weight to it) now one of 3 Allis Chalmers tractors I own.
I can still remember the feeling of the hydraulics slowly letting it down and hitting rocks every now and then that would jump you up and down on the plow...( Lucky never got hurt!) My dad was a great guy and always was very careful when he would allow us to " help him"get through a hard piece of ground, or was it just for fun😉
This was long before video games or any other source of entertainment so that's all we had oh, well that and fishing all day long consumed my days 😁!

Mine came from the attention I was giving my Super MTA , my wife always claimed I was nuts for my old tractors, so there you go. However when I got her dads B Allis, she decided maybe it was a legit obsession and I wasn't really nuts.
I have a 185 Allis, 6060 Allis, Model K gleaner, SMTA ferg 35, ferg 20 (paps first tractor, Allis B (wife's)John Deere 240 skid loader and a bunch of the usual farm stuff.
