Sunday we attended a small G.T. show / G.T pulling / and lawn mower racing.

 

A member of the local VFW  awarded a "veterans favorite"  trophy for his favorite Garden Tractor. 

He chose a Ford LGT 14D  Deisel, belonging to a freind of mine.  The gentleman was pleased to find out that he had chosen a G.T. belonging to a veteran.

Back in the early 80's we ran bar-stools. It was more of a timed obsticle course. 2 stools ran at a time.

I have a photo of me, but not sure you want to see me with an Afro hair-doo!

 

Nice looking show and photos.
