"I'll be Goddamned if I had to pay for the malt too!" -- Eric Nottestad's Oral History 

Eric Nottestad tells some amusing stories about his grandfather's 1941 Farmall H tractor, an exploding Oil Pull, a tug-of-war between a Farmall 460 diesel and a new Super MTA, and how half of his family are loyal to IH while the other half use Deere. This is a delightful and entertaining oral history spanning generations, and one not to be missed!

This oral history was shared at the Red Power Roundup in Union Grove, Wisconsin on June 16, 2016. Eric was interviewed by Sally Jacobs, archivist for the International Harvester Collection at the Wisconsin Historical Society.
