Our local engine & tractor club managed to get 40 acres outside town, and every Fall they'll have a gathering that gets bigger every year. All weekend they have lotsa things putting and pulling, one guy has a Rube Goldberg old-gas-engine-powered pencil sharpener that takes up a whole trailer - it has a little windmill, marbles wandering thru troughs and everything - and they have their own parades and contests and square dance the tractors. Hot dogs, coffee, benches, shade, more fun than should be legal :)

Yes, I attended our local antique tractor show
and someone brought an antique corn binder.
(to bind the corn into shocks). I was truly
amazed to find out what it was, as I had seen
b & w photos of the shocks in the fields, but
never knew how they did it--thought it had always
been done by hand. Truly amazing stories come
My favorite tractor is the Massey F.
Then I tried to figure out why no M. Ferg.
ever show up at our tractor show. This guy
explained to me our area had certain dealers
in the area. He said if you lived over west
you had M.F.--John Deere, Allis--Well, I grew up
over West! That's why dad & gramps had a MF.
Then I asked about colors. He said yes, when
you order your attachments, you had better know
the color, and stick w/that one color.
I said, "I understand they still argue about
colors". He said, "Oh Yes!"
Now is that everyone arguing about their
favorite tractor?
