36th Annual Antique Tractor, Truck, Engine & Machinery Show

This show is one I do not miss each year....it's a fabulous show, in a world class venue. Admission gets you a great tractor/truck/equipment show, as well as full access to numerous buildings housing the Gilmore Car Museum collection. A full day of great stuff. Garden tractor exhibitions have been on the rise the past couple years, and I take all I can fit in the truck & trailer.

The Kalamazoo Valley Antique Engine & Machinery Club hosts this event, and this year the feature is IH (IH Michigan State Meet).

This is also a Vintage Garden Tractor Club of America Regional event. This is a great group, and draws a very color-blind crowd of L> enthusiasts.

Very nice show, and some very nice tractors there. I haven't missed it the past 3 years, but sadly I believe I'm not going to be able to make it this year.

Yup...I figured it may rain overnight but we got nothing 30 minutes from the show and still dry. Looks like its a steady rain at Gilmore. Radar shows it has started to pull away, so if it doesnt linger I should be ok to leave within the hour and the rain should be done for the day. Gates dont officially open for another hour anyway.

Tomorrow is looking great!...boating day for us =)
