Good call Jim! Our "in house" AC man!!!! Why didn't I think of that?

There were some very nice AC tractors there for sure!

Lots of old time machines in operation all around the grounds.  I really appreciate seeing people maintain them and share them with the rest of us.

My family had/have a bunch of vintage Case tractors but they were busy taking off soybeans and so they weren't in attendance but they would've enjoyed this lineup.

This old rat rod International truck had this interesting "swan" hood ornament. Does anyone on here know if this is a factory thing or an aftermarket item put on it?

I wish I had a better pic of this 1969 IH pickup because it had a great back story.  Dad and I were looking at it carefully when an older lady came up to us and asked us what we thought of her mostly original truck!  It was in very good shape for being a 48 year old truck in Wisconsin. It took an 18 year hiatus in a barn which ended when the roof collapsed on the barn!  The truck had a ladder rack with two old mattresses on it which saved the truck.  They used it as a catalyst to get it back on the road!  Cool!

Nice Josh.... I thought you didn't have any nice pics? That big Case comfort king was boss in my book as well as that IH tractor named "Patsy"  ....just an awesome resto and when he fires that big diesel up!

Sorry it took so long! My turn to add pics.

I did get a pic of our line up but it was a little late I guess. Some of Josh's & Ryan's are missing. Between 4 RS members we had 20 :wh:'s there on Sat. Plus there was a C-161, a Lawn Ranger, running around, plus my friends Charger v8.

A very nicely done AC 185

Some one put in a ton of time restoring the AC Gleaner combine.

Jim I did find an Economy, not a tractor but a very nice hit/miss engine.

For steam power there was the big Case running the saw mill.

My friend Willie's up right 7hp engine, he had this hooked up to a cross cut saw later in the day. They were using it to cut down slab wood from the saw mill.

My brother hooked his JD model H to the shingle mill on Sun. afternoon.

Cedar shingles being cut.

The threshing machine was really giving this little Oil Pull a work out.

DSCN1895-min.JPG.07c889492e91a997bce7a2001f5228f3.JPG

This JD tractor & Hay press were there to bail up the straw from the thresher.

I spied some people feeding the ducks on the Fox river.

Jim getting in on the action, feeding the ducks some wheat that we grabbed from the thresher.

I found this Chrysler Saratoga in the parking lot. I believe that it was a 1958 model.

A nice Oil Pull and a scaled down replica.

As always the best part of the show was hanging out with friends and meeting people with similar interests. This show grew a lot from it's first year to it's second year. I expect even more growth next year when the feature will be IH, with Red Power having their Farmall Frolic there.

Very cool, I like it. However, IH was known for strength, not style. Definite aftermarket and I'd love to have one.

This is what the stock noes would look like.

:text-coolphotos: thanks for sharing.  Those are definitely cool trucks and a unique piece of Americana.  My dad owned a 1966 Scout for about 20 years when I was growing up so I'll always have a special place in my heart for IH trucks.

For what you guys are calling a "small show", they really have a lot of neat things going on.  The pictures look great and the show grounds look like a real nice place.

The club currently uses a city park for their show. There is a lot of room for the show to grow at this park. Being a park does limit some of the things that can be demonstrated though, no plowing for sure.

:bitch:you had to bring that up didn't you Dan!  Just when I was really thinking positive thoughts about the show.  Good thing the family has some plow plots about that time--ready to work:auto-layrubber::ychain:
