Not a big show, but I have a collector friend there & wife has a niece there, so we make the 130 mile trip most years.

Yes, I agree with Kenny. On small shows you often meet the exhibitors and visitors with the most knowledge and it's more familliar :thumbs:   ildeere.gif

Looks like a nice show Lowell. Lots of green tractors there by the looks of your pics.

 

Trivia fact- Ottumwa Iowa - Home of Radar O'reilly from the Mash TV series for all you older folks out there.

There was one Minneapolis-Moline farm tractor w/ cultivator, a Wheel Horse & a Power King garden tractors, everything else was JD.

John Deere's "Ottumwa Works", haying equipment plant is just across hwy 34 from the show site! ~~ Lowell
