I've found some great deals on GTs and parts at this show. I also get to meet and talk to many people with similar interests.

 

The summer show last year was very hot. Not as big of a turnout as Fall and Spring.This past spring was the biggest turnout that I've seen. I walked all day and didn't see it all.

 

I believe the Panzers are having a get together there too. There are usually several real fine Panzers. If you are in the area, its a good show. Good Luck, Rick

Sorry to hear about the back problem. Gone through that numerous times myself and it is not fun. Hopefully you'll feel up to it by Sat or Sun.

  Take care.

Cloudy weather today, how's the crowds? My scouts haven't called me back with any findings of bush hogs or elec-traks....

No Bush Hogs but I saw two Elec-Traks and one of the Wheel Horse versions. As far as crowds, I've never been to this show (or any show anywhere in this region for that matter) so I have no idea how it compares to other years. By what I'm used to at tractor shows, it was pretty light. We did have a nice turnout of Panzers though.

Went today, venders were down, and crowds were down. The weather was the big factor, much cooler than last year.

 

I found more golf cars for sale than I did GTs! I found one cushman that I was interested in, for it's motor. It had best offer on it, but the man didn't seem too interested in selling it to me, so I didn't bother. 

 

I also saw one Elec-trak....WITH A GAS ENGINE ON IT!!! The man was very nice and we spoke a few times about it. Another make an offer deal. I didn't bother. I snapped some photos of that & will post later.

 

I saw a mini dozer too, in pieces, missing it's hood for $300. it was pretty rough shape.

 

I went with my friend and we had a good time. I am going to go in the fall, on Saturday this time, and hope to find some gems by then!

Sorry I missed you. With the long drive we left around 10 this morning. That must have been the Elec-Trak I only saw in the distance.... I'm pretty sure I would've noticed a gas engine.

....wait, maybe that was the first hybrid...

Yeah - as per usual with most shows, the crowd was fairly light on Sunday but foot traffic seemed heavy on Sat but not quite as much as it was in May.
