That looks to me like a Massey Ferguson.

Given Massey Ferguson and Scorpion virtually worked hand in hand, or I would presume they did. We have a '77 Massey Ferguson Whirlwind 440 that is identical to a Scorpion Whip.

Yes it is a Massey. In fact it is prior to the hook up with Scorp. This guy was feeling left out, off to the side of the crowd. He was practically the only guy there without a Scorpion. Really nice sled!

This is the first vintage show I've been to, so I didn't know what to expect. To say I had a blast is not the end of it! We had an awesome time. I forgot just how quick some of those old sleds can go! The whine of an old CCW motor is a sound from the old machines that I had just about forgot about. But when one came roaring by I was forever reminded. Then.....to hear once again a Super Stinger with it's dual stinger pipes running off a triple engine that would barely start with a shot of starting fluid. THen to wrap the whole thing up the totally bad ass Brut struts it's stuff around too. What a nasty sled!!!! Way ahead of it's time in 1975. It truly was a great day despite the ketchup and mustard freezing up in the concession stand. I can't wait for the next show.
