Ole' Red Goes to Washington

The Red Power Roundup team was pleased to have Mr. Tony Ramos as a "Harvester Heritage" featured speaker at the 2018 Red Power Roundup at the Garrett Coliseum in Montgomery, AL on Friday, June 15, 2018.


Mr. Ramos is a cotton grower from Fresno, CA and witnessed the first cotton picker to arrive in the San Joaquin Valley. As a teenager, he worked at Allied Equipment, who was hired to restore Ole’ Red, the cotton picker subsequently donated to the Smithsonian Institution. Tony had the privilege of participating in this historic project. 


Mr. Ramos’ appearance was sponsored in part by the Harvester Heritage program, an International Harvester Collectors Club (IHCC) initiative. Videography was performed by Steiner Tractor (www.SteinerTractor.TV).
