If so, where's the pics! I'd have thought there would be a lot of folks from the forum going. I'd hate to think I have to wait for Kate to make and sell a CD before I got to see what went on up there for the 50th Anniversary of Weekend Freedom Machines!

Thanks for the pics. That almost looks like one of Don Campbells' scaled down replicas in the first few photos.

Hey Guys I have a few that I will try and get posted.  It was a great show one that I will never forget. The only thing that would have made it better is if the weather could have been alittle nicer. Cold and rainy.

Member Robert Webb went, so I hope he posts some pics soon.  I know for sure he went, as we spoke on the phone as he neared the Chicago area on his way there.

No this 8020 came out of Indiana.

Had a great time. Had to be 600+ tractors and 99% JD.

Got a chance to meet and talk with Josh Deaven. Really good guy. Like many have said this was a once in a life time deal. I was able to look at the original blueprints for the 63 110 and talked with some of the engineers that worked on the 63 project. The 110 that is painted red and the one next to it was prototype tractors and the yellow 140 was a Navy version, From my understanding, John Deere had a contract with the Navy to build some 140's to use on aircraft carriers to move missiles around. This one is the real deal as many are just repica's. As the story goes most that was used during the war was buried at sea on the way home.

 Well anyway here are a few more photos. Hope you enjoy.
