• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

The 14th annual IH Sierra Fall Rallye will once again be held at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley, CA on October 9th-11th, 2020.

This year will be same as last in where we are located within the grounds. The games will be held in the same area over in the grass and the vehicle line up and vendors will again be in the stretch of trees that goes from the gate 4 entrance to Ponderosa Hall.

Like last year the Ponderosa Hall is where we will have Saturday's dinner and Sunday mornings breakfast and again cooked by Norma Ismail and her team of hard working volunteers. This year on the dinner menu is going to be BBQ Beef and Chicken Skewers, mash potatoes, coleslaw and steamed veggies. Drinks and dessert are included. For breakfast will be burritos stuffed with eggs, sausage and cheese and a side of Hash Browns.

Registration and sponsor sheets are attached.

Mark your calendar and check back often as we start planning for the 14th anniversary event.

IHSFR 2020 to be canceled. We have received official word that we will not be able to hold our event as planned due to the Governor's restrictions on mass gatherings that are still in place. We have no indication when mass gatherings will be allowed in the future. Those who already paid will get their registration and payment returned back. We are so sorry folks as so many were hoping this could event would go on. There already is some talk of a possible camp out somewhere where we will protest the rusting away of our IH's?? Stay tuned!
