I attended the annual Hudson Valley Auction Saturday.  Started at 8AM and still going when I left at 7PM.  Several interesting walking tractors.  Tiger Cat $200.00, Plow Trac $400.00, Gravely 5660 with late snowblower $175.00,  Bready Powerflow $15.00 (flat tires, Briggs 14, no paint).  Lots of Gravely L's.  One with a 30" mower brought $650.00.  No rhyme or reason for what some people will pay for stuff.  Three auctioneers at once.  Over 2000 people in attendance.  Some pictures.

I would have went Cliff, but I'm on call and had to work this weekend. I live across the Hudson River, about 1/2 hour from the tractor club. My Uncle is a member and he bought a Farmall cub that was at the auction, and my cousin went and bought a Ford 8N. It might be the 8N in one of your pics, but I haven't seen the 8N yet. Maybe I can make it next year. From what I've heard, they are moving the annual tractor show to late August instead of having it in Sept. There is always a big turn out for the auction, and hopefully the show will start attracting more people.

Looks like something I would be interested in for next year.  What is the name of the auction or website?  What town is it held in?  Is it always the second Saturday in May?

Thanks for posting the photos.  The Ward's tractor reminds me of one of the British garden tractors.  Do you know who made it for Wards?

Why Simplicity did, same folks that made the BMB line for the English guys. Most tractors were shipped over minus the hoods and engine, then their bonnets and JAP engines were installed there. Pretty common thing with overseas Yanky built stuff.  A lot of these were shipped over before we got into WWII, as they need there materials to make weapons with.
