Wife & I are fixing to head out on motorcycle ride to a neighboring county for a Antique tractor show. Never been to this one, so hope it's a good one. No matter really, as it'll be a nice cycle ride just the same. 65 miles one way mostly through small roads.
Oops...gotta check my camera batteries! BTW...only 55F this am. Coolest morning since May 9th!

Met Bob Simmons at the show. He has a large collection of over 160, yes 160 garden tractors in Lewisport, Ky. He had 4 of his Bush Hog tractors at this show. Kate from LAGC had told me about him a while back. He will be front page of LAGC in a few months. He makes me feel like such a beginner at the GT game!
Here he is & his 4 Bush Hogs he brought.

I don't know about your batteries dying, but I sure hope they had some oxygen for you when you saw all of those beautiful Bush Hogs all lined up!

Looks like a nice show & a nice day for a ride. I looked at all the pics once, but one of them twice... what's up with Farmall with the Case paint? Or am I missing something? Thanks for the pictures! It's the closest I'll get to a show this weekend.

You know, I'm not sure. So it looks like an 8hp to you? I was so overwhelmed with finding this guy that I didn't notice details! lol
