Yes, only about two dozen tractors there today, maybe more tomorrow. It is in conjunction with a farm toy show.

Not a bad turnout for their first show, some tractors left yesterday & others came today. Probably about 30 tractors today & several hit & miss engines from 8 HP on down. Several toy dealers inside too.

Back from the Osceola, IA, GT show, feature was JD so I took the 314: Tractors 2017 042.JPG Sold the harrow & disk, but not the cultivator!

Looked more like a Wheel Horse convention: Tractors 2017 040.JPG Tractors 2017 041.JPG

Some variety though: Tractors 2017 043.JPG

I took my Cub and Speedex today...nice show, great people but attendance and participation seemed a little higher last year. Here's a link to 100+ photos:

The Allis Chalmers D14 (first 6 photos) was an impeccable multi-year restoration by a gentleman who appeared to be in his 30's. The photos don't capture the detail that went into the restoration.

Photos 7 and 8 show an Allis Chalmers G with a hydraulic angled snow plow. Although I know little about the "G", I didn't think such an impressive snow plow was a factory implement. The gentlemen who fabricated it turned out to be quite the authority on the "G" tractors. In fact, the blade was just part of the story. He took a basket case G and completely transformed it in every way yet it still appears to be a standard "G" at first glance. He replaced the 10 HP Continental engine with a 60 HP Datsun car engine and hand fabricated the rear half of the tractor, including the sheet metal, with bits and pieces of scraps he found. He probably spent an entire hour pointing out the differences between his customized "G" and the factory original "G" he owns that was parked next to it.

In retrospect, I was pleasantly surprised to see a few younger tractor owners in attendance. Likewise, there were several young families who visited the displays. Perhaps these vintage tractors will find a good home when old geezers like me are gone.

Lowell - I really like the way you have the little table at each tractor with the book. What is in the book?
Before, during & after pictures of the tractor with some explanations!

Did they have the Field Marshall started? Nothing like hitting a 12. Ga shell with a hammer to start your tractor.

Yes, they started 3-4 times!

Personally, I prefer the Lanz Bulldogs! :thumbup1gif:
