Please join us for a great all Allis Chalmers Tractor Show. In addition to the big boys, we would like to see more garden tractors.
Included are Simplicitys, and Simp built Wards. New location this year at the McLeod County Fairgrounds. Also new this year will be more indoor display area, including covered display for L&G.
The show is well known for its field demos, for big tractors, and small.
For more info see the website,

OK, I am taking this one under consideration. An hours drive from me. Dad had several Allis tractors, from as long as I can remember to the end. His 200 is still on the farm for snow removal duty. Lots of orange AC memories. Thanks for the heads up.

Argh! Wish I could make it this year but my wife (and I too) have booked up our weekend with work, a birthday party, and possibly camping. I'd really like to meet a few fellow GTTalkers.

I plan to attend on Sunday morning, hopefully. I would really like to bring along an AC 720 GT, but its current owner (i.e., the seller) and I are having negotiation issues.

For future reference, would a 1972 Homelite T15 H qualify? Allis/Simp built, clone of a Simp 3415H.

The show's website has an email addy so you could ask them if it would qualify. That Allis 720 certainly would! If you can snag it or another, you'd never be sorry you did! I love my 620!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all, new mwmber here. Some of you I have met through tractormike, and at the Arkasaw Plow Day.
I have an affliction for AC garden tractors, and asked Mike to post the bit for the Orange Spectacular.
I have been attending the show, and exhibiting for a number of years. We would like to see more GT's at the show. It is an all Allis show, but have included Simplicities also. As such we should include Simplicity built Wards, Allis built Homelites, and Allis built JC Penny's. All I ask is that you repectfully stick to Allis/Simp units, and that you come and have fun. Any questions can be directed to the website, or contact me.
