At 0800 hrs it is still raining and very windy here. I had a long day at the VA yesterday so, I overslept this morning. I won't even try Zagray but I will spend some time on a GT in the basement and run some shopping errands. Next Sunday is a Swap Meet in Brooklyn, CT. Good Luck, Rick

I will be going tomorrow (Sunday).  Keeping my fingers crossed there are people who attend.  This is usually one of the best shows in New England.

The wife and I got there a bit late, but from what I heard the turn out was slim. I bought a Model A brake pedal to put in stock. Even though it was quiet, we had a great time watching the vintage clams, cranes and drag buckets at work. I got some pics and some vids of that to share after I transfer them. Got to watch the saw mill in action. Also met some real nice folks. One member, Bob, gave us the farm/club history. Also showed us pics of his stretched '68 Cub Cadet. He had the pic on a business card. Very nice man! Another gentlemen had a homemade GT that he fashioned off a Panzer from parts he had laying around. Loved that thing! 


We're staying over and hitting the show again tomorrow. Hopefully, the weather is a bit better  :thumbs:

Weather and turnout a LOT better today. Got a couple neat items, including an old wicker/leather seat that I think would look nice on the LoBoy Custom we're building. A nice Farmall grill. I'm thinking from an H, but that's just a best guess. Some old Tonkas from the 50's - 60's.


Couple pics of stuff that looked cool to us.


This is the gentleman, Bob, that I mentioned earlier driving. He said it was rusting away outside for years before the club redid it. I never laid eyes on a Case Tractor KIng before, but it was as impressive a machine as I've ever seen. What a beast!




Couple nice Fergies.






This is Joseph. Just met him. We tried troubleshooting his Custom 6 engine problems. Very nice young man.




I spent a long time watching these machines in action. 




Never got to talk to the owner of this. Don't know what make. Toro? Worthington? Anyone know?




Really liked this one. I talked to the gentleman who built it from stuff laying around...........50 years ago. He said he had updated the engine at some point.
