I would like to point out the Guy in black standing in front of the speaker. Bret Esse and I believe his group of 7 put on this great show. This is a must do show.

 

 Here's a video of Dan @Achto doing the chain pile

I was able to get a pic of  @Shynon doing the chain pile. Showing us how it's done with a gear jammer.

This rat rod Suburban with the massive pipes looked pretty cool.

As much as I like Wheel Horse's, I like to get pic's of customs and tractors that I don't see a lot of. I'll start with this custom built Oliver 2255. The detail on this tractor was incredible.

This Amigo caught my eye. While they have steering brakes, it does not have a clutch of any kinda. Instead it has a shuttle shift trans.DSCN1636-min.JPG.7961789cee674ae2bc27e73119588f84.JPG

 

This is the only Economy on tracks that I have ever seen. Not sure if it was built buy them, but it was branded & sold buy them.

This Gravely built by Studebaker caught my eye. The fiberglass body gives it a 1950's space age look.

I'm not exactly sure what this is, but I sure liked the dune buggy look.

One of my McLean's relatives was even there. This is a McLean Big Wheel. Single rear wheel drive with one speed forward and no reverse. Oh yea, & what did this company have against brakes?!? :scratchead: That's right no brakes on these things either, must have been where the engineering or money ran out.:DDSCN1627-min.JPG.6857095dd70f83fe17e6614210f92c9f.JPG

 

"Steve on a stick" photo bombing another pic.:D Sure missed ya @stevasaurus, hopefully you'll be able to make a few more shows next year.DSCN1653-min.JPG.234edb07bebac905113747106f91fc4f.JPG

 

I used to miss this show do to a traditional family vacation. I had such a great time at the show that I think it's time for a new tradition.

Your right Jim, we should've at least gotten a pic of that tractor, I did see it leaving for a new home.

Dan has a knack for snagging those classic photos (my favorite so far is of Zach and I plowing on GhostRider at Symco last year) I love this one of Jim, Zach, and Steve on a Steeek!  I showed that to Zach tonight and he thought that was super cool!   I certainly enjoy the tractors but its you guys (the people) that really make an event like this!  I've met some of the neatest folks in his hobby and I've only been into it for about 6 years.  

 

Next year I'm gonna plan to take more time hanging out and maybe even stay overnight--the boys love to camp!!!!

That video is cool Tom ...every time I watch it I think ooooh Dan just a little more on that pass! You can see where he is trying to hook the tails to try and pull it a little tighter!
