Not much action today, many packed and left. Did see some coming in also as we were leaving. Will be back in AM just to get my new stuff and pack up. Supposed to rain, mostly in afternoon, hope it Does hold out and wait till we're packed. Did sell the one Wheelhorse, but not for price I would have liked to have gotten. Least we won't reload it!  Heres some pix of Bolens junk, and a Speedex, believe it or not under tons of hydraulics and chains and stuff.$300 for it. Had big Twin engine, a case like drive system, and big valves and gimmicks on it. Nice Grey Gibson here.

Last day, was half deserted and those there were packing. Spitting rain in AM, but turned gorgeous in afternoon. Even kinda hot!  Saw couple more Bolens, but trans were out and kinda all the good stuff was gone already. Here's a few last pix. I'm in a couple with load to go home, and my buddy Rollie too with MY wheelhorse D180 on his trailer.

Grumpy, Do you ever see any M/W River Side tires there for sale? I should have asked last week, but didn't think about it. I need a set for a restore I'm doing. I hope you enjoy your Auto18, I really enjoyed mine.

Zat Monkey Wards tires???  There's plenty of tires for sale for garden tractors and big one also. I don't look at them too close unless I really need some. Usually look for odd sizes for my MM's big tractors. Lot's of new vendors too. Some selling imports like Deestones and the Firestones and Goodyears are there too. Some other brands. Kinda hard to find an old tire that is still any good isn't it? Don't know when they quit those, but bet quite awhile ago. Miller Tire in Ohio has odd sizes and brands, might check their web site and see where to call and ask about some.

Finding used tires of any certian brand is pot luck at Portland, never know what will show up.  You do see some used tires, both lawn and garden and farm tractor size.  Saturday is usualy a waste of time anymore, most everything is gone Friday evening or early Saturday morning.  We packed and left around 3:30pm Friday afternoon to beat out the rain. Spit a bit going thru Hartford City but didnt pour till I pulled in at home in Kokomo.  Another nice spring show in the books.  I am already looking forward to the summer show, and the gathering of the orange later this year.   Mike
