Sorry, I usually don't cross post, but seeing as how this was only posted in the case Forum I figured it is worthy. FYI, I'll be the Friday until Saturday early evening.

All makes of tractors welcome!! "The National Show for the 50th Anniversary of the 1965 Case 130 and 180 Garden Tractors"

July 10th 11th 12th - 2015

300 Superior St. (Veterans Memorial Field - Columbia County Fairgrounds
Portage, WI 53901

Contact: Bret Esse 608-697-3690 or 608-297-7400 evenings

Facebook: Annual "Garden Tractor Daze" in Portage, WI

If you are bringing a Case 130 or 180 to the show please let us know. We will be dedicating a Nearly New Pole Barn entirely for these garden tractors and will be sequentially lining them up for display. Condition does not matter restored or unrestored. The Case 130, 180 garden tractors were never documented by Case as to the total production made of either tractor....so lets see how many we can get together! This will be an informative weekend for Case collectors inside this building, don't miss it

Sorry I didn't post pics last night as promised, we didn't get back til 8. When I got home I showered, and just went to bed. I didn't get many pictures but I'll post what I have. We still have to unload yet...jeepers:)

It was an impressive show to say the least, and the last count I heard on the street was 480 some tractors.

I must say there were alot of very interesting machines, and some very nice people there. Every time I go, I see something I have never seen before, and the food was awesome.

This was the first year they did a low idle contest, and yours truly won that with my homemade tractor, 1943 Briggs ZZ. I got her down to 323 rpm.

Good times had by all!!!

I was on the row over opposite corner , I didn't realize you were a member Ooops. You should have stopped and said hello! Oh well, next time maybe? :) Will you be at the Edgar steam show??

You had some nice equipment there for sure!!

My first time at the show and thought it was pretty cool! I thought there'd be more Masseys...guess we'll have to change that in the future. Haha! Is there a different featured make or model each year?
