Now that's what I call a show!

Excellent display Aaron, lots of time and effort put in for sure.

Glad you guys have some cover for the machines, its tough keeping these machines dry at shows.

 

We Bolens guys should try and do something big in 2019 to celebrate 100 years of Bolens Tractors!

Glad it turned out so good wish I could have loaded up a few and made it but just can't get away. That golf cart body looks real familiar though.

image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg .Here are a few more pics from today! Also forgot to mention we had a total of 14 bolens ridemasters that are there an one Bean Cutler! This breaks the old record of 9 that gathered a few years back I can't complain I put a lot of work into this but it was worth it.

Stopped over again today in Morning Rain!  Not much traffic till it finally lightened up about 2:00 and later in aft sun was out again, but muddy in all the lanes. Then people opening,moving and shopping again, lots in golf carts this time with weather. Not much sales for me today, hope better tomorrow, but still says 40% rain, so maybe not. Sat better if people stay around. Gunstuff did have nice safe little tent and covers for others, looked good.

Dang, kinda wish I was there, but I'm off on a road trip buying some Bolens 'goodies".

 

I have one of the Sweepster Transporter bodies, but it's missing the foot rest parts. I would have liked to have gotten pics and measurements of those pieces.

 

Sure wish he was a member here, I'd like to contact him.

I just got back a day early, It rained all night, and there was a ton of water.  I'll post pics later tonight.  

 

I have to thank Aaron for the great show.  It was great to see every one!

Aaron it was good seeing you, to finally get to meet your dad, and see the rest of the guys in person.   I got off the phone with bryan a little bit ago he said it was getting bad.  Hope we can do it again next year without the rain!
