The "old style" were (& are)

far more versatile than the

"skid steer" wonder machines

Either or both are necessary

The BAC lot in I believe Hanover , NH with Buckles and Anna May followed by Peggy.

Chic Silber said...

As of sometime last year

Peggy was stiil up with

Scott Riddle in Arkansas

She was born circa 1950

I agree Paul, looks like Hanover, a beautiful lot and a much anticipated stop on the New England tour.

BAC's Bobcat was an indispensable piece of show equipment. The Operations crew kept it busy around the clock.

I first saw a Bobcat rag out a Big Top being operated by Frank Pealer on Vargas. He did this with 2 assistants, taking the place of a dozen or more the old way.

Paul Binder said...

Could be Hanover. I loved returning there every year.

Paul Gutheil said...

And we immensely enjoyed our visits there Mr. Paul.

Chic: Peggy, 69 WOW! ! Will send you a pic or 2 from her younger days. Wasn't it Peggy that Buckles got from Gunther for a buck, or something like that?

Chic Silber said...

Gunther had some issues with

her & offered her to Buckles

"complimentary" (no charge)

I can't recall her name before

Buckles renamed her in honor

of 1 of Barbara's sisters

I tried but couldn't reach

Scott to confirm her status

Chic Silber said...

Not certain but I think

her name had been Eva
