Believe it is still in WI and it shows up at the annual PK rally in Dodgeville each year. This is a fairly new show, only about 5yrs been going on. Lots of PKers from the Forums get up there and talk all about the history of them and there is even a fella that worked high up in rating for long time that helps with the little differences people find/note on their models and years. Not sure the date, but think It is in early June??

Not sure if you mean, Dodge County Antique Power Show in WI. This is where they have the Power King Reunion yearly. The picture looks to be taken there as well.

I think we talked about this last year, and you guys were heading back asap. Otherwise we would have meet up.

 

Are you guys planning the trip again this year?

As I understand it,the tractor is in a bitter custody battle.Dan Moss had buildings full of toys like this tractor and was a large contributor to the Dodge Co show.
