Oscar's Dreamland, Route 9, Billings, Montana 59102

In the past couple months we've had some very high winds in our area. Wouldn't you know, among some 100 threshing machines at Oscar's Dreamland there was a late model Case 28 x 47 in like-new condition. She decided she was too new and took advantage of the wind and flew out to Richard (Dick) Tombrick's home near Warden, Montana. Since Dick is president of the local steam and gas club at Warden, she will show off this coming summer during their annual show. We at Oscar's Dreamland are happy for this one wind!

By the way, in 1961 we had a friend come into our business in Sheridan, Wyoming and ask if we could find him a new threshing machine. Since we were Case dealers, we called J.I. Case in Minneapolis, Minnesota and in a few days they called to say they found one machine in stock, in one of their Canadian branches. So, we assume we probably sold the last new Case thresher.
