Thank you BP. I did some digging and found a couple other things.
This is my older brother Dave on the left with his FFA calf. Me front & center, Dad & my younger Sister on the Tractor/Picker. Since we were share croppers, dad took a pull type picker & mounted it backwards on the tractor so He could "Open the headlands & the field". He would take the loader off & hook a wagon to the front of the tractor and pick corn, backing through the field. With a pull type picker, the tractor is off to the side of the picker, you run over corn that way if you're opening a field, so with this unit, that's not a problem. You would count off so many rows, then Pick 2 rows, count off so many rows & pick 2 rows. Then the owner would get a strip, We'd get the next strip & so on. That way the corn would be divided equally, allowing for variations in yield form one part of the field to another. The owner would cash his share in & Dad would put our share in the crib. Then he'd sell some off whenever the price was good, but most of it went to feeding our own livestock.
Dad Passed away from cancer shortly after this photo.

Here's a youtube video I found of Dad playing around with his super 8 movie camera, welding & driving what we called the jeep. (A model A He converted). Oh, the model A crowd would have a fit these days. Dad probably would too if he knew how much that deal would be worth today. This was back in the 50's, so they were not all that rare back then.
Oh, and there's a little of me driving one of Dad's projects. Actually was built for my Brother Dave. He was hospitalized with polio, but thank God made a complete recovery. This was a welcome home gift Dad built for him, but we both got to drive it. It's actually a self propelled Sickle mower that Dad front halved you might say.
Dad didn't stop with the Model A. He later took the Hudson in this video and chopped it up, making it into an El Camino or maybe an El Hudson.
I believe they have gone up in value also. But then, it was just an ordinary 10 year old dime a dozen car back then.
