  Anybody thinking of going to the Zagray Show in Colchester, CT on May 2&3 ?  I'll more than likely be there if the weather is ok. Not sure if I'll be there for the whole weekend yet but definately planning on being there at least Saturday. Don't forget that the big Allis Chalmers show will also be taking place so expect space to get tight. I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of Allis and Simplicity garden tractor equipment in addition to Panzers.

Jim Haynes is usually always set up selling parts at the May show, so I'm assuming he'll be there for this one.

  Lets hope it will be warmer by then.

    Me and dad are going to be there as well as a few others, I need to pick up a tractor while in ct and possibly find some other goodies.  planning on going for the day sat at this point but I will watch the weather and see which is the better day.  putting the finishing touches on dads b-10 this week, should be ready for the trip next weekend.

I'm planning to go also.  No Panzers this time just a bunch of other stuff.  Has the Kent show and Zagrays always conflicted on this date?

I hope to be there. Spring is often the best show. I was frustrated that Plainfield was cancelled and need a fix. Yes Kent and Zagray always seem to conflict. Good Luck, Rick

So far they are predicting great weather.  Should be a full house.  I'll have my new GTTalk banner up.  Stop by.

Shoot for the whole day. I usually walk(and talk) from 9 to 3 and don't see it all. There will be demonstrations of old equipment besides the fleamarket. Good Luck, Rick

Just received this message from the Coventry Plumber, Tom Cardillo and I had to share it.  Really funny.  I didn't know he was a Poet.

 

"It's Zagray eve and all through the house not a thing was moving except for Savagemans computer mouse.

His new banner will be hung on the canopy with care with hopes that Coventry Plumber will soon be there.

When suddenly to what to his wondering eyes should appear but Jim Haynes pulling in with a truck load of Panzer gear.

Big Al is next door with his Panzer hat on his head while trying to figure out why Coventry Plumbers T70 isn't turquoise but Red."

 

Well written, Tom

Thinking of going? No. Definitely going? YES!

I too was disappointed the  Plainfield  flea market was canceled.  I will be tractor-less but I hope to meet some of you while I'm there. I'll be wearing a camo gravely hat.

   Well I am loaded and ready but fall a little short on the prepared department.  dads tractor fired rite up and drove up on the truck then just quit !!!! :wallbanging:  I have been monkeying with it all evening with no luck, I think the coil must have just let go.  kind of strange it did it like that but it is the only thing I can come up with for a complete lack of spark.  Looks like we are bringing it but will have to push it in place at the show :thumbs:  Hope I can get help to get it back up in the truck.

   Really looking forward to the show otherwise, we will be there at 8 am and stay most of the day.  see you all there, just look for the wingnut pushing his tractor around :thumbs:

           Pete

I've been going for a bunch of years, it was the nicest weather and the largest that I've ever seen it. I walked from 8 to 4 and was worn out. Saw a bunch of the people from here and met alot of other people too. The ACs were out in force! I only ended up buying a few things for my B10s but, learned more and had a great time. I had a senoir moment when packing my ruck so, I forgot my camera. Tom (LGT195) and I ran into each other at 2 GTT booths. He delivered a neat little mower to Pete (Petrj6). I hope every body else had such a beautiful day too. Good Luck, Rick
