Christmas with NTPDA Members

We're collecting Christmas and Holiday pictures from NTPDA (National Tractor Parts Dealer Association) members and posting here for everybody to enjoy! ADS GROUP PHOTO web

Here's a group shot that Dave Coonrod sent us from Area Diesel Service with offices in Carlinville, Illinois and Pleasant Hill, Iowa.  It looks like there's a party brewing! (If you click on the photo you can enlarge it...and see what's on ice!)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at NTPDA!  Got a photo or two from your holiday event, decor...whatever.  Send it to Kim at the NTPDA office!  We'll post here as well.


It's an NTPDA Members Christmas!

We asked our National Tractor Parts Dealers Association members to send us some IMG_20131219_104523_638 web holiday photos of their office, staff, business and we'll be sharing here and on Twitter @NTPDA. (You can click on the images to enlarge.)

Our friends from SAV Transportation are really getting into it!  This is Gretchen Thomas a dispatcher at SAV and the WINNER of the company 2013 "Christmas Cube"  ContestIMG_20131219_104541_222 webThanks Steven Haas for the photos.




And, from our friends at Reliable Aftermarket Parts based in Williamston, Michigan we received these beautiful images.  Let it snow, let it snow, let is snow! IMG_0798 web

A big thank you to Liz Root who sent them to us.  You know, in Texas we don't often see snow!

We thought this photo is so simple but, elegant at the same time.  Who would have thought the word "elegant" and "parts" could be used in the same blog post?  Thanks again for sending this in!

Our friends in Rock Valley at Rock Valley Tractor Parts took part in the annual Rock Valley Tractor Parts Festival of Lights Parade web Festival of Lights Parade and took along their truck and a "lit-up" display.  Very nice!

And, thank you Scott Schelling for sending in the you had a great time!

Keep those photos coming in!  Send directly to Kim at the office.

And, Merry Christmas!

Members Save with Hertz

Hertz-logoYou may know that members of NTPDA have a benefit with Hertz but have you ever used it?  Let me tell you my story:

I wanted to test out the savings so I selected 7 days in the month of December and received a pricing of $325.49 to Pay Later and $276.67 to Pay Now without our discount.  When I put in the NTPDA discount code those same 7 days and car came back with $292.94 to Pay Later and $249.00 to Pay Now.  So you can see the type of savings you might expect and of course every little bit helps these days.  So the next time you need a rental car remember to check out Hertz..

Hertz has approximately 8,800 rental locations in approximately 150 countries worldwide.  Your NTPDA Hertz Discount Savings Program is available through corporate locations only.  There are independent licensee locations and corporate locations but the discount is only valid at corporate locations.  For a complete listing of locations visit the Hertz website at Once you are on the site you can select Locations and enter your desired city.  The location type (corporate or independent licensee) will be indicated for each Hertz location in each city.

If you need a copy of the Hertz membership card or want your NTPDA Member Number let me know and I'll send it to you.


Membership is a good thing!
