I attached a photo of a tractor rarely seen at shows.  It is a Mighty Mite made by the Jaques Power Saw Company in Denison, Texas.  This same company built this same chassis and sent them to York, PA to the Graham-Paige Company to have the Rototiller engine installed and sold as the Jaques-Frazer Model T.  This tractor was at the Jacktown show on Saturday.

Do you know what the asking price was? Looks like it might not have the original engine in it.

I saw it there too. The engine was incorrect, it should have a briggs zz in it. I wish I had faces to go with some of the members, I am sure I walked past a few of you at Bangor!

All that I saw was a phone number.  I think the tag said model 23.  I have to look at my photos again.  Should be a ZZ B&S.

I think I met your dad at the show.  He was with another fellow from the show held at Loyalsock and the PA director for VGTCOA as we gathered at Al Hofer's display.  Also met Alc and talked awhile.  Great time at Jacktown.

I know there must be more of these tractors around but their owners must not be computer users or for one reason or another keep them hid.  You just don't see them and yet I know at least 3 or 4 owners of the Jaques-Frazer Model T tractors that you would not normally see at shows on a regular basis.  Of course then they would not be so rare.  This was the first Mighty Mite I have ever seen at an engine show.

You probably did, he got there early on saturday. I got there just as he was leaving, around 11:00. My son and I stopped off at Delaware Water Gap to take in some of the beautiful landscapes before going to the show. It was a great father/son day! The other gentleman was our cousin( many of my family members are active at loyalsock) Bill, the PA director of the VGTCOA, is also a member @ loyalsock and always brings alot of odd stuff to the show. Al has been to loyalsock several times with his beautifully restored panzer. Bagor was a great show, I would recommend that anyone who hasn't gone to make the trip.

I got a few pictures of that tractor as well. There is a collector in MD who has three of these.

As far as meeting new members goes, I was doing my part, I had my GTTalk hat on... ;-)
